    Yes the Walker is the only mower that goes out with us mowing. We only maintain 18 homes right now. I have a older great dane that I was keeping as a back up but am probably getting rid of this spring.

    Alright looks like I'll give that a shot. I was only planning on doing two mailing of 15-20,000 but might reduce the amount of houses I hit and concentrate them more and do three mailings if you really feel that works best. Just hoping this really helps me grow this year.

    I've thought of it but was actually leaning towards putting simulators on the dump and updating the grill to the chrome grill. Probably not going to touch the trailer because I will most likely be upgrading it in a year or two when then business grows. I really wish I went with black when I bought it, had the idea of doing a gunmetal color scheme but later decided on the the black later.

    I changed my idea of doing one large 10k + mailing to doing 3x 3k piece mailing about 2-3weeks apart and hit select communities.

    A little update. Getting ready for this blizzard we're getting tomorrow. Already have new people calling me to get on my list for snow plowing. I also sold the 93 f250 this week so now it's on to looking for a new truck for the boss man. I got a new gopro camera so I'll be getting some video of plowing this storm tomorrow and Saturday.

    Well I went out and bought a new truck last week! 2013 GMC Sierra 2500 SLE with the 6.0 Vortec. Absolutely love this truck and am planning to continue to move away from Ford trucks. Seemed like every month last year I was spending 300 a month on repairs for one of the trucks. Also a pic of my new pup I got a month ago, he's a golden, spaniel, chow mutt.
