    Everything looks good. Im 17 now and am in the same boat as you running a part time operation. Paper was good too. Word of advice though. In your paper you have part-time spelled pat-time. Might want to change that. Figured I would give you a heads up. But everything looks good good luck the rest of the season and with plowing.

    Thanks man, I like your thread too. The trailer is nice, but SMALL lol. That is all the toyota highlander could handle at the time. I want to upgrade to a 7x14 enclosed next year hopefully. Yes, I have use the sides countless times, they are great!!

    Well, I haven't been around here much lately so I figured I would update this thread quick. Hope everyone is having a good winter!!
    I'm really getting the spring itch. I am in process of putting an agressive marketing plan together, I'm shooting for about 30 maintenance accts right of the bat in the spring. I'll get more pics in the spring, I just figured i'd update it. My winter is going pretty good, I have about 15 plowing accts which is perfect b/c it is my first winter plowing. Also for christmas, my parents got me company t-shirts, sweatshirts, truck magnets, yard signs, etc with my logo, so I figured I'd share. I love the high vis. carhartt apparel, and my parents got my logo put on it. LOVE how it turned out. I have been really getting noticed while out working! Here is some pics of the new stuff and a few other pics.

    First pic- hat and sweatshirt
    Second Pic- closer veiw of logo
    Third pic- Truck with plow and magnet, you can see my buddies 99 in the background too.
    Fourth pic- what we do in MN in the winter- Ice fishing and snowboard jump on the lake, it was pretty big, I plowed it with , my truck, got towed in with a quad doing 40 mph to gap it!

    Questions, comments, concerns, let me know, thanks for looking!!
    -Peter
