    I am wanting to get into the field next season. I have no knowledge of irrigation yet. Can anyone point me to a resource ?

    I barely new anything this past spring. Now I have installed several systems and have been on 2 dozen or so service calls. I love it, mainly because theres so much to learn, I know a few guys who have been doing this 10+ years and they tell me they still learn new stuff sometimes. Just read up on it, but mainly its all on the handson stuff.

    "Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other." - Ronald Reagan

    What we need is accountability and less burden on the system. The rich, like the middle class, are both taxed out.
