    I figured I would do an introduction thread since I plan on being here a while. Lets see... I'm 26, married with 2 kids, 1 of which is 3 months old and the reason I am here. I wanted my wife to stay at home and raise the babies and I needed to supplement the income. Right now, the only thing I am doing is enough to cover my equipment payment. I have always been a perfectionist and love to work outdoors. When I do get jobs, I treat them all as if they were mine and price them accordingly. Right now, I only have 3 commercial jobs that take a total of about 3 hours. 2 of which are billed out of state and word of mouth usually doesn't travel that far. So to say the least.... I've seen more downs than ups thus far.

    My equipment:
    2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
    2001 Texas Brag 6.5' x 12' Trailer
    2009 Bobcat Procat 61" 27hp Kawasaki
    Toro 21"
    Stihl FS80R Trimmer
    Stihl BG55 Blower
    Stihl HS45 Hedge Trimmer
    Stihl SG20 BP Sprayer
    Ryobi Trimmer (Back-Up)
    And last but not least: My will to succeed!

    On with a few pics!

    I asked my print shop 2 weeks ago for quotes (whom I do a bit of business with) and just got the prices back on Friday. They don't make the corrugated signs I want for the trailer so I may take it elsewhere and get a package deal. I think the magnets for the truck may need to be on the top of the list since I don't pull the trailer but 3 hours a week.

    Thanks, it's a totally different animal than that RZT50 I had for a month. I only wish I would've listened about buying commercial.

    Navy Blue. They do look dark when I made them online. Paired with Dickie's rip-stop khaki pants. Makes a good looking uniform.
