    You are starting in the cheapest market possible. I just picked up a flyer for 35.00 a month.
    If dont have a 60" ztr you will not make a dime. If you are in the New Tampa, Westchase or Southshore area get ready for price quote shock.

    We are slowly pulling out of New Tampa, found a nice area that still has high prices.

    Every bone head out there is cutting grass from being laid off or trying to make ends meat.

    I bet you can make more selling newspapers on the side of the road.

    I agree with yamadooski. Take the 5 grand and blow it at Mons Venus you will get a hell of alot better return on your investment.
