    Going to do a job 2 hours away soon.

    148 heads, and I won't be able to fit the 410 in a lot of area's.

    I'm contemplating renting a dingo.

  5. How far do you guys go for work? Most of my work is now within 15 miles of my shop which is next door to my house on 2 acres. So nice to work and keep all of your equipment so close to the house.

    Us So. Cal folks commute....with traffic..jobs within 10-20 miles can take us anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and half.

    Good ole days are long gone.

    Having grown up in Orange County I don't remember a "normal" driving time to any place. :)

    And when I first began driving back in the 60s a lot of today's "places" weren't even on the map then. :laugh:
