    BTW $ 200 a week even for a family is high. I have very good insurance and I pay 110 a month for myself. Family would be $250 or so.

    It will be atleast 100$ per week. I just posted some insurance quotes the wiffy can get for under 500$ per month.

    Found out my old job stands. Management is the same and he said he would match my old pay. Then a dollar for each extra cert and 5 for state inspection license.

    That's almost 40 an hour

    Problem is the auto repair industry is also slow in the winter.

    You gotta do what you gotta do,

    You going to be sitting at the Dealer at Christmas time playing cards with the other wrenches, making nothing and not being able too go home.

    Can you run one truck with a helper and turn 1250$ per week, and you other truck turn 250$ per week, both after expenses?

    That's something to think about as well. 2 years ago I was turning that per day, offering a niche service. But it wore me out

    As of right now the plan is to have the gf running mulch deliveries. Well have to see where maintenance goes next year
