has hanging lights for the past 7 weeks gotten us ready for tomorrow? maybe? I would say we are more ready than we have ever been with 4 returning guys from last season. 2 crew foremen are multiple year returners. but the third and fourth crew leaders new leaders this year, and they are on thier 2nd year with us, having helped on crews last year. I don't know if you can ever truly be ready to split up your guys into seperate crews until you actually do it. the first few days of november stuff always seems to get forgotten and left at shop, tools and magic boxes disappear, etc. The first few days I try not to book any appointments in the morning until around 11 when the hand holding is usually done on the new guys. after a few days the trucks are usually loaded with everything they might need for the season. the good news is weather is looking really sweet for the next 10 days, lows in the 40's and highs in the 60's. no rain predicted. hopefully, we should get alot done. you guys making a big launch tomorrow?
