    Here's some pics of a camp I started mowing. It's been vacant for a couple years and the grass hasn't been mowed in that time. These pics are of the second time I went there. The first time was crazy. It's around 30 acres of mowing....

    Sorry the pics are huge!!

    What type of camp is it? Does it pay worth a hoot?

    Lastly it was used as a church camp.

    It pays pretty darn good.

    Heh....not much fun at all. The first time I was there was a few weeks ago and the guy who owns the camp has a bunch of Texas longhorn cattle. They were grazing all those fields. So not only was I cutting 2' tall weeds I was running over cow pies left and right. It's gotten much better since then. The area pictured is just a small part. There are several areas that are way bigger. I just put on some headphones and go at it for a couple days.
