I thought this would be a fitting video to end my year with.
And I hope y'all love GNR.


And on edit, DON'T feel sorry for me, I am financially FREE and vindicated.

Wow Ron... you did it.. you pulled the plug. I will miss your stories and your vids but I understand... Sometimes I look at all my little kitties and think about why I got into the biz in the first place.. to build my ranch with my own equipment.. and I got hooked... Now I don't have as much freedom as I once did... But, ranch ain't done yet so I will have to stick it out a little longer. :)
Business isn't too bad down here. Staying about as busy as I want but margins are tighter with every out of work guy lowballing.. and the customer not knowing the difference between fly-by-night and established, competent biz.
So I know what you went through..

Good luck on your next endeavor...

glad I have a Taki! So are you done with equipment ownership and going to rent or done with the work all together?

And I thought you sold your stuff a while back and started working for your brothers excavation biz?

I still work for my brother and he has taken over the reigns, some of which I have posted pics of, but no more owning for me.
I regret having my own business, but I regret nothing of which direction and the choices I had to make.
But god damn it, that Takeuchi still gives me wet dreams.

Happy for you Ron and have fun with Rubi! That was a nice YouTube although, did you stick some Chinese Democracy on us? :confused: :laugh: Hope the new year goes well. :drinkup:

Honestly, I wish I could sell all my stuff also and walk away. I'm really starting to hate this but am stuck.

Nice video.

I am just a few payments away to being debt free and owning everything.
I am also fed up with lowballers and driving every where for work.

I am thinking I might need a change as well.LOL

So wheres the pics and video of the jeep!

A bigger problem that is coming into effect on Jan 1st is a surcharge for older equipment in Metro Vancouver, they have to pay a $4 per horsepower for engines below the TIER 3 regs, and that cost will rise, just another way to line the pockets of those greedy a$$holes. I expect it will come our way too, same with the tree cutting bylaw.
I'll have to post a few pics of the Rubi later on, she's got some goodies.
