    Real sorry to here about your health problems.

    What equipment will you have for sale and prices? There is forum on here to sell items. It would help if you could post pictures and give hours used, year bought,etc.

    Well good luck to you, 2.5 years is a nice run, you gave it a really hard shot and I respect you for that.

    One other thing: You can always get into a different kind of business, now that you know the basics.

    Just wondering how many accounts you had and if you would try to sell them...might as well go out of the biz and get as much as possible
