    Just wondering if anyone makes enough from spring to fall to sit back and enjoy the winter months (NO PLOWING)?

    We plow (3 trucks) but essentially we are off. Plowing helps break up the boredome some.

    I have to admit I plow also, but with usually only 10 or so plowable events, it's like taking the winter off. I could easily do nothing if I really wanted to.

    John, I used to do the plowing thing for the winter. Couple of years ago the wife retired from the banking industry. We went to Daytona, FL., and bought 2 mobile homes. We use one in the winter, and the other is rented out for the year. We do the Daytona 500, 24 hours of Rolex, Bike week and Spring Break. We are in our mid-50's and enjoy the heck out of it. We go to the world's most famous beach each and every morning to start the day off. 3 years ago I sold all of the plow equipment, and have never looked back. NOW, it is warm and sunny all winter long. I love it...

    I run 2 plow trucks and do the "domestic engineering" duties durning the winter while the wife works. Signed up for retierment this week so I will need to make some business adjustments for 2005. My wife is after me to give up plowing next season so we can visit friends in Florida. With the weather so far this year it looks like winter will be a bust.

    Yes, we just finished up our 6th season, and haven't worked a day in the winter since we started. (no snow removal at all.)
