    Like.. They recently had all their equipment stolen? Can't afford to replace it?

    Or.. Had an accident and equipment was damaged?

    Or.. Would like to get started but just can't afford the start up costs?

    Or anything else along these lines?

    I know this is a weird thread to start but I am curious and maybe someone would like to talk about it. I'm not looking for stories from your past. It has to be recent.

    If you are looking for a trustworthy person to give that open trailer to? then I'm your man :) I will take anything for free because the day is my wifes B-Day and I forgot and she is kicking me out with just the clothes on my back. boo hoo (as I wipe the tears from my eyes) I don't know what am going to do. She will probably get the business and everything. Boo hooo, I just don't know what I am going to do.

    I'm just joking of course, but today is my lovely wifes B-Day :)

    I hope I didn't offend anyone with the above situation. I know this is a fragile community.

    Sorry Soupy... That's not a sad story. It's a lame one! :rolleyes: Did you really forget? That would be really lame too. Not giving a trailer away.. sorry.

    I was hoping to keep this on a serious note in case anyone wanted to talk about it.

    I was going to say,...if you're being put out, then you're going to need an enCLOSED trailer! lol

    In the last 10 days,

    My trucks rear end froze up, $1000

    My Honda broke a c.v. axle and needs breaks and a tie rod end, $300

    The one blower craped out, it was old just a bad time $500

    Had to pass up SWEET deal on a scag hydro walk because i cant afford it now.

    Total cost $1800!!!!!!!!! :cry: :help: :angry:

    I am dead serious.

    I did have the money for everything but the blower, but the saving's took a hit.

    I swear this all happend, BAD, BAD week.

    Does a speeding ticket count?

    Tell me about it! I hope next week is better.

    The part that really sucks, I still dont have my truck back, so i am having to borrow one.

    If it could have waited 2 weeks to happen, but no, it had to go right in the middle of leaf season.
