    gravel is a biatch if you dont have the right equipment. try fillign an 8 yard wheelbarrow with rocks, get out a shovel, and let me know how it goes.... lol


    i dont know the right way to do it, but doing it like mulch aint the way 2 go

    We need some rain here in NW Ohio. We already skipped two lawns due to being brown. Had a few showers come through Friday night but just enough to knock the dust down.

    We need the rain here as well. We had a thunderstorm come through about 11 am and dump some rain. But I will take more and take a all day rain to get things greened up. Have a good Memorial day everyone. Not going to cut here on Monday.

    Went to the man store today (home depot) and picked up a few various hand tools like shovels, etc. Other than that, pretty boring day. I think with the gravel, I am just going to have the delivery company tailgate spread it as close as possible, then I will give it a few finishing touches. It will be 100% easier that way for me. Everyone have a good holiday and no work till tuesday!!!:cool2: :clapping: :D

    Tom, we had a good week end. I worked 45 hours between firday at 2p and Monday night till 3a. We were crazy out there. We were even checking fishing lic. down at the lake :). We used Sonja this week end to. It was alsome..

    We got the flat bed back on the road, was able to get the plugs out with out taking the heads off. That was a good thing. We got hit with a storm Sunday night, we had some where around 70 MPH winds, trees down all over the place, and snaped power poles off 3-4 ft from the top. It was crazy we had dime size hail, and alot a rain.

    There was a boat in Atwood lake that fliped with people in it. Had a sub station blow up. Most of the town was with out power for about 30 hours.

    Thats about all thats new with me.

    Holy crap Ronnie!!!!!!!!!!;) :eek: That sounds like a good mess!!!! I didnt think sherriff's department had anything to do with fishing licenses? At least here only the Park Ranger has any say so in that department, but I dunno.

    Just work, work, work and more work here for me. My regular customers are wanting more and more done. Now I have 2 installs, 3 retaining walls, 2 lawn installs, 1 dethatch and aereation, some hedge trimming, and possibly a sprinkler system. So my schedule is getting nice and fat!!! Got a few more maintenance customers, all of which signed up for snow plowing too!!! So I think I am doing pretty damn good my first year out into this:weightlifter: It started slow, but it is picking up nicely now. Towards mid or end of summer, I am gonna be getting a few more pieces of equipment. I see a Walker MTGHS 26hp EFI in my future:dancing:

    Hey Ronnie, you still lookin to get rid of that salt spreader this year?? Lemme know, I need one. No more falling on my arse this winter:rolleyes:

    Tom, yea it was a big mess. Yea we can check and pinch you for fishing & hunting laws. How ever thats what the ONDR is for, but there was nothing going on so we decided to screw around with them.

    Yea, i'l hook u up on the salt shaker, I need a V-box this year.
