    You will probably lose out to a yoho with a garden tractor for 15 bucks an acre.

    And when you get burned who gets the blame?

    In this world, you can't run if you don't know how to walk.
    And you can't race a car if you don't know how to drive.
    And, you can't do the work if you don't know how to bid it.

    Coming in here asking away, we give you the answer, you don't learn nothing, be right back asking for more.

    You want it bad enough, then you go out there and give it your best shot, bid away and hope you don't miss by too long a shot.
    That's how you do it, and at least you learn something.
    Plus you ain't got nobody else to blame.

    Figure up what 3 or 4 hours of your time is worth.
