    Sometimes it just takes a big government contract for your business to really explode!!

    So how would you perform this service anyways?

    With the line about buried explosives I wouldn't touch that job without the classic Hover mower! And I would not send my best employee there also. Call George Jetsons Lawn Care.

    Pine, You can ALWAYS go over and bid the old Wurtsmith Air Force base in Oscoda! That's done by a private contractor now- and no landmines!

    Hey Pine, how are you going to get your mowers across the pond? When you do I have a &%$*#%& brother-in-law in Oahu I would like to send your way to run the mower and maybe a trimmer. Let us know when you bid it.

    wonder how many times a year it goes out to bid when the last guy gets vaporized
  7. The last time I was in Makua Valley area the grass was so dry you only needed a blowtorch for the job! Prolly could get the miltary to loan you there flame thrower!
    Would have to use a metal detector first I suppose. At $40.00 per man hour, go figure!
    Its a real hot issue over military using sacred Hawaiian lands for practice. Just started cleaning up Kahoolawe island from years of practice.
