    How far would one travel (from home base) to cut an account? How much would you have to make. Would you travel 20 miles? I would definitely would travel 10-15, so whats another 5 miles. I then feel, if I score this "fair" commercial account on a main street, I may end up with more in that area.

    your thoughts.

    Most definitely.

    Wondering how many are going to come back.

    Most of the white pine by me have lost that yellow\orange tint already, but lots of other plants have not.

    I had (2) exmark lazer z S series stolen overnight between 5/15 and 5/16 from our office in Wixom. They were in an enclosed trailer, which was recovered today in Detroit. One was a 2011 the other was a 2013. If anyone comes across anyone selling mowers that seems a little fishy, please consider they could be hot. Thanks
