    You are driving too far. I have accounts less than 20 miles away and I want to drop them.

    You are right, I was making a emergency repair comment. Next season, Russ and I will split up the service areas; no money is made to send a tech more than fifteen miles for a one hour service call.

    Don't you add on a bit for drive time?

    I just took on a new maintenance site today. No sh!t...sent my number 1 amigo stud 56.17 miles (one way).

    The good news is the system at this shopping plaza was in tatters. I'm pretty confident that bill will around 3g's when I work it up tomorrow. Nothing but broken and leaking heads, line repairs...basic stuff....but a butt load of them. One man and he completed all the repairs today.:clapping: On his way back right now.

    Oh yeah...well system...Rid-O-Rust tied into the main BEFORE the RP ~ and I'm not kidding!!:cry:

    :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    It's always great when you land a good size system that has been neglected.

    I didn't mean to brag....just wanted to mention how far we will go for work.

    Let's see what it came to.....

    Sorry, I was spewing bologna....fell quite short of the brag. :hammerhead: Won't jump the gun again.

    2,205. No high ticket components. Just heads, fittings and pipe.

    I am recouping the 2.85hr drive time though.

    Looks like he only gets a 1/4 oz & Big Mac.
