Thanks for the kind words, I really appreciate it. Now that we've crossed into the new year I can see myself walking on the stage at graduation, only a few months away! I only have one actual class left, and then a second "internship" class which I can use my own company for. Did you get an Associate's also? I see you have built up a good amount of equipment based on your sig. How old are you? If you don't mind. If things go very well this year and I'm able to get 30-35 more full service landscape maint. clients (shooting for 20 by the end of May), and buy a house with some land around it that's relatively close to where I live now (parents) and somewhat still near my clients (priority for me, after paying off my plow, one student loan that I had to take a personal loan out for in fall 2011, it's a long story, but that has just short of $1900 left on it and I'll pay that one off this spring, and a couple credit cards), I also want to buy a new & bigger trailer (I'd love an enclosed but maybe an open, not sure), sell both walk behinds and buy a Lazer Z w/ the Exmark bagger system on it. If I'm able to secure some more large installs and I can pay off some more student loans as well as pay down more on my truck. Then I'd buy an F350 Dump most likely, my grandpa does have a 95 7.3 F350 Dump that he doesn't really use much and maybe I'd buy that and get a leaf box on it and a leaf loader on my trailer's tongue. I want to get a house of my own ASAP because my parents aren't exactly keen on all my equipment, plus my dirtbike and stuff and I really just want a place to call my own and I can take a step back and look at it all, house, shop, dirtbikes, truck, equipment and see that it's all mine! That'd be perfect, then I can finally see all this hard work paying off. Plus a good buddy of mine I go to school with (same age as me) that owns his own landscape company and works for his dad's large maintenance company just closed on a house on the 28th and I'm a little jealous, house with a 40x60 shop w/ concrete floors all on 3 acres just a few miles north from where he lives(ed) with his parents. I think I'm going to push hard to pay off student loans and such, to increase my chance of getting a loan for a house, then expand into more trucks and equipment like a skid (maybe) and a dump trailer, etc. A daytime shot from last Friday. From Christmas Day. Washed it all up. Needed to get the salt off. I did the same on Sunday also. I'm making it a habit, $3 or so a week in the winter to wash my truck isn't too expensive in the long run to keep it rust free. Plus, a clean truck is a happy truck and an even happier owner.
