    Keep 'em coming guys. Good Job. Also, what are y'all's ways of keeping track of what you do each day on paper? Specifically, do you have a notepad or organizer where you keep track of time @ jobsite, comments about jobsite, services provided @ jobsite ect. I keep an organizer with a list of all jobs to do each individual day. But that is about it, all other bits of random info. I keep in my head. By the end of the day everything is a jumble. Any advice?

    As I expected we are all thinking of things that are necessities that we may have overlooked. It seems like each post has a handful of items that we all probably keep on our rigs but simply overlooked. Thanks!
