    I have been mowing commercially for almost 22 years :D before I started mowing I climbed and trimmed & pruned trees for 2 years. found I liked being on the ground allot more then in a tree.

    11 years, before that managment in distribution, before that, management for a national park concessionaire.

    This is by far the most rewarding overall, though the park job was sweet (hired lots of college girls) but I was 22 and single then, not 39 and married.
