    I assume you are a solo operation. I personally would never hand my accounts over to a competitor for a couple of weeks(especially if I don't know them). Make your bread and butter during the season and schedule your vacations around the down times. My 2 cents.
    Lots of luck! :)

    Ditto...we go to Florida in January. The plowing is handled by my employees (as it is anyway)

    Hi Frontier-Lawn,

    I see that you live in FL. Do you have any slow time coming up or are you busy through out the year?

    Fantasy Fest is a BLAST no doubt .....but you'd be REAL Lucky to even get a room for 2005 on the island as of today .... if you stay fore the whole event it's like 10 days ....best get in on "Fat Tuesday" n leave the next Monday .... that's like only 7 days ...n that will be enough ....you'll need to go on vacation after Fantasy Fest just to rest up ;->

    Plenty of rooms up the keys like in Looe Key (mm 26) or even Marathon (mm 45) Hawks Cay is awesome n only an 1 hr to Duval

    The bars already stay open to 3am ....n when the clocks turn back that's really 4am ....wet tee shirt contest at Sloopy Joes at 3am!

    Fore us on the Space Coast it's 42 cuts per year bi weekly Nov -March .... easy to plan a Key trip in Nov ....but Fantasy Fest is October 21-30
