    Was asked today to put in a bid for Uncle Sam today. 2.2 acres, flat, dozen trees or so, approx. 1000 linear feet of trimming, blow off walkways and curbs. Was told by a few others to bid it extremely high, up to three times my regular price. Don't really know how to bid it could use some info if some of you have done contract work at any military posts. Two guys and two 48 wb's.
    Thanks in advance.

    Did a job for the Gov. and got screwed got shorted cause they didn't like the work, did what was in contract, but they had expected more, wouldn't have made a profit if i would have been paid in full instead lost money, maybe that is why you bid it high you may only get 3/4 of your money
