    I think that is like 45 miles from me lol! It might be a little to far but that would be an option. I would rather get an associate degree than just a certificate. Don't know if it means anymore. I was also looking at the gateway tech school program for horticultere/landscaping. Yeah i agree with you 100%. Working for someone else 9 times out of 10 sucks! You still have a shop in Waukesha? how much you paying for rent you should post some pics!

    I live out in East Troy aka Alpine Valley lol. Takes about 45 min to get to downtown Milwaukee. ARe you planning on going for 4 years? Blackhawk tech only has night classes withc sucks because i work freight part time at The Home Depot 6-12 mon-fri. Can't afford to loose that job! At MATC online it says they have day classes. I wonder if i would be able to go 3-4 times a week full days? not sure how all that works.
