    Well, got me a 2006 18' Eagle Trailers Flatbed, just like I've always wanted. Got a Shindaiwa T231 trimmer, picked up a 93 F250 4x4 with a Western blade, gonna haul it out to my uncle's farm next week, sold it to make room for the '97 F350 4x4 single wheel 1 ton PSD I just brought home yesterday, and the Western blade and salt spreader I'm gonna get on it next week. Didn't do too bad checking stuff off the list this year, still got some money in the bank too. Oh, and we moved into a much bigger shop.

    Now for next year, ordering an 07 John Deere 657 A 54" stand-on in Febuary, still wanting a 14' 14K lbs dump trailer, and I'm kinda working out a possible deal on a 01 773 Turbo Bobcat w/ 4-in-1 bucket and forks.

    For 2007...

    Another Stihl trimmer
    bagger for the Turf Tracer - just putting these off cause I don't need them now.
    Typical Expenses

    Call me crazy but I don't want to buy any equipment. Next year is going to be a huge year for profit (if I can keep myself out of the Chevy dealer).
