Gas for .25 Gal ?? That would be great!

Been mowing since I was 15
Took over day to day operations of my father's company last year.... I wish I could go back to being 15 when riding on a sulky and trimming all day didn't cause so many aches and pains and when I went home at night I didn't have more work to do
Me and my dad started doing this on the side 4 years ago. Hopelly next spring we will make it official and really push for more business.
10 years by myself...started in the neighborhood when i was 8
3 going on 4 soon
I started with 4 lawns all within walking distance of my parents house. Used a push mower 21 lawn boy. I started when I was going into the 4th grade so whatever age that is! Each year after that I gained a few more. Pulled the mower behind the bike for many years until I could drive. Now I am 38 yrs old and expanded into all lawn service, landscape design and build. Spraying. Snow. Striping parking lots. Remodel or build new houses. Started a nursery this year. So yes been around. Always learning new things. Improving always. And I can't forget I have an awesome support system -my wife and three boys! Oh yes I still have the paper work from those early years. My wife thinks I am nuts keeping those old records but I just gotta keep them.
Started cutting when I was 13. Officially went into business at 18. Closed it down at 46 during the divorce, returning to the industry I love at 48.
Im Just finishing up my 4th season, cant wait for next year!
28 years here, love it too, its a hard business now with high fuel costs, and a sporadic economy but try making every day the best I can
