    I'd imagine plowing is the business to be in up there? Or is it too thick for even the biggest, baddest plows :weightlifter: I've got family up in Anchorage. Joe Serra, Pete Zakerduew... Good people.

    You'd be surprised at the fickle seasons ol Mother Nature deals us up here. I currently do not offer snow plowing for a couple of reasons: It is unreliable. Four years ago, we had maybe 2 snow "events". Virtually no snow, but a lot of ice. It was a good year to have a sander. This year has been average, with about 60" of snow so far. Another reason is that there are a lot of guys who have a plow on their truck, and they underprice anybody with a business/overhead. The client ends up getting what they pay for, but they only care about the bottom line $:hammerhead: Is your family up here in the green biz?:drinkup:

    The season will start about the end of April and runs to about mid October. At that time, anyone would be able to stay on through our lighting season (which is hanging seasonal or Christmas lights) which shuts down at Christmas. If any of you are interested in learning more about this lucrative service add-on, come on up and learn from the best:laugh: . I'll try to check this thread more frequently, but feel free to e-mail me at if you have anymore questions.:drinkup:

    Ooooh no. My uncle works out on the oil fields (he's busy right now) doing firefighting/paramedic work. The other one owns a pub.
