    I work solo or with a helper or two doing small design/build install and enhancement work, I drop my kids off at school and sitters in the morning so we normally meet at the job at 830. I normally load trailer, pick up materials the day/evening before. I used to work for a large evil corporation and we had to be at yard 545, crew there at 6 and out the gate by 615 at the latest. I hate starting the day rushed and in a panic just keeps you pissed off all day.

    Yea I picked 9 but seldom get down stairs before 9:30 but the guys start at 9 and get everything ready before I head down. That said we work till 8 pm most days so I feel no need to ever start earlier I work long enough.

    About the same here. Seems like we work until about 8pm then head to the shop to do maint. So, why start early I'm going to work until dark no matter what time we start. :dizzy:
