I ran across this site yesterday while doing a search on mowers and equipment ... so I thought I would sign up and pick up some tips or pointers along the way. Who knows ... I might even be able to add to the forums a little here and there! Me ... Just a 53 year old guy (a very young 53 I might add) ... who has 30 years in working for someone else. This time next year I will be looking at taking an early retirement from my years of service working for someone else year round. I bought a 36' 5th wheel camper last year .... and I plan on getting a lot of use out of it. I now take 4 - 5 weeks vacation in the summer, and that's when the kids and I travel some. Next year, I plan on leaving my employer, and taking on a job driving a school bus during the year, and having a small lawn service to carry me through some of the summer while school is out. Knowing me though ... I'll probably grow it bigger then I want to, that's just the way I am about everything. Anyway! Tips ... pointers ... advice ... or anything else you may want to share would be greatly appreciated. All my life I have loved my lawn work, landscape design projects, and working outdoors in the summer months. I now hope to carry my hobby into a smaller business until I can afford to retire full time (which will probably be never). As I said ... I just wanted to stop in and introduce myself ... and start getting involved a little here.
