    I was just wondering how much money everyone considers a good day. I know there is no limit on how much money one would like to make. I'm just trying to compare myself to others. I try to be somewhere between $300-500 after all expenses. Usually it is myself and one or two other guys depending on what we are doing. Thanks

    ...depends on what time of year it is. Right now we're pretty slow so I net about $200 per day. During the growing season I may net $8-$900 on an average day.
