    Where are you from? What do you do in the off season? Interests?. I'll start; I live in Riverside Connecticut. In the offseason I run a small landscaping business with about 10 customers. I'm also a junior firefighter at my local station. At high school, I'm involved in a robotics club, and also go to the shop after school to work on a kit car and custom build stuff.<p><br>Bryan<p>----------<br>The Snowplow Homepage<br>http://www.snowplow.web.com

    I'm from Iowa. I plow in the winter as an addition to spreading aglime. In the summer we haul rock, dirt, sand and anything else that fit in the trucks. We also do dirt work with a Bobcat and sell landscapeing materials.

    My name is Alan Nadeau, and I'm located just north of Burlington, Vermont in the town of Milton. About 30 miles from the Canadian border and on the shores of Lake Champlain. I like to think we're a pretty big fish in the plowing business locally, but that is only because it's a damn small pond. Summer work is mowing and seeding, along with landscape installation. I'd really like ro get away from the mowing. I have a long background in metal work and structural fabrication and tend to be a &quot;tinkerer&quot; so I build/modify a lot of my own equipment and trailers. Strictly a GM man as far as trucks go.
