    Thanks, I appreciate it. Glad you could make some side cash as well....with the way things are in the winter months for myself anyway I have to go out on a limb every once in awhile to get a little funding....the way I like to look at things like this is if it would have happened to fall through I would have only been out 250 rental and in my eyes it was worth the risk for the experience I gained in something new and getting my name out there as I handed out cards to anyone I spoke with that day, that showed them my work ethic as I was out doing something I didn't HAVE to in 25 degree weather.

    we been busy plowin and saltin lots but also gettin alot clean work.... they are sayin we could have some more snow this weekend next tuesday and wednesday and then again next weekend
  3. just remember where as you don't ever get much snow people and businesses are in a panic mode with snow, therefore you need to be charging a premium price for this service. Just don't be afraid to price accordingly as they need to get it off.

    i sat at the top of an icy hill for two days and pulled out people who tried to make it up. i pulled out 30 people and ended up with a couple hundred dollars in tips and a bunch of leads. it doesnt sound fun at all but it sure as hell beat sitting at home and watching wheel of fortune and jerry springer

    Good job, but you need to be at least 90-100 bucks an hour with that machine, not 20.
