    Thanks Ryan. If anyone has any questions on it, please let me know @ rdj1@iland.net. Some fields have calculations so be sure to look before typing. And you'll need to come up with the number of weeks you expect to work per year, fuel economy of your equipment, etc. Should give you a pretty good idea of what your costs are per hour though, so now everyone can be sure they aren't losing money out there sweating their butt off!

    I completely forgot about this thread. I tried to get the file from here but my computer tells me that is corrupted or something. If you get a chance could you send it to superflyry1@aol.com
