    im thinking about going back to school full time before i get to old, i am doing very good biz wise but if i dont get out 100% then i will never focus on school. if it doesnt sell then i am going to buy a few new things and really go at it hard this year.

    The only thing I think your too high on is the enclosed trailer. Your trucks are about right Kodak might be a little high as I've seen a few on ebay lately go for a little less, had more miles but were diesels. Maybe the tools too but I can't actually see what you got.

    yeah the trailer is the one thing i really dont want to take a huge hit on, its brand new and i have about 15k in it. so i figure im loosing 5k in less then a year. the kodiak i have about 13.5k into and have never even hauled a load of dirt in it yet. i want to put good prices on the stuff so i have a chance at selling it but at the same time im not gona bend over and take it or i will just park the stuff and let it sit while i go to school.

    Just curious, but why sell the business and not sell the accounts? I am pretty interested though. Send me an e-mail jrgillabs@aol.com and let's talk about it.
