    Here in my area of Texas it does not snow much but is icy. I only do lawn work in summer months. I am also a Private Investigator and work for the state as well.

    I just got back into lawn work last summer after being out of it since 95 and am building my customer list and getting the equptment I need.

    This year I hope to be able to get a 48" walk behind and a trailer. All I have right now is 21" mowers and load them in the truck bed. So I am looking forward to this year and know I can get these new toy's.

    Roger, I'm looking forward to it as well, even though I've been going year-round here, LOL. I hope to pick up some more residences this year. Good idea for the WB, but wouldn't it be better, since you're upgrading you 21's, to get a 36" WB, so you can still fit through some gates? It'll do what the 48" will do plus I think it'll give you a little more versatility. Then when you need a bigger one, get a Z ;).

    Wichita Falls is up by the north, isn't it? Do you do any work in OK, too?

    It's Feb. now and I'm getting a little tired of this vacation. I'm ready as well. I'm doing a home and garden show this weekend and the results seem to be pretty good.
