    That sounds like it may be a good time myself and another lawn service buddy from Port Huron are going down to the expo center . Let me know when and where and we could probably fit it in.

    Hey Eric, will you be attending the open house at Commerical Mower on February 28. If so, I may see you there. Eric, are you the same Five Star Lawn Service that had your equipment or trailer stolen last year, I think I saw it on the news.

    Hello to all Im kinda new in the area just bought my first
    house in Livonia in 2000 and took the plunge into my Lawn Care
    Bizz full time in March 2001 This site has been A great place to
    learn and get others opinions. Its helped me in getting everything
    set up as A legit bussiness so I can start gearing my services
    twards commercial propertys. This is a good idea to meet with
    other in the same area I get a lot of people trying to barter me down on my prices with this guy only charged this or that would be nice to get a grasp on what this market will bear and maybe
    help each other be more successfull at what we do. Has anyone
    elce had A ploblem in Livonia with city Inspector hes telling me
    my truck can not be parked in my driveway because it has my
    name&# on the sides and that Having my plow on the truck or
    in my drive in also A violation in A residential zone. This guy keep
    coming back everyday with warnings.

    Anyway It would be cool if I knew some people with the
    same goals and dreams of making it as A successfull LCO.

    This has been A ruff 1st yr for me expecially with no winter!

    I plan on going to the novi expo show and of course the
    steak dinner at weingarts where Ive spent tons of money!
    So where is this get together taking place or are you just
    seeing whos interested? Well if ya get it together count me in.

    I mouthed off to one of the inspecters have been on my a$$ for the past year with the whole commercial vehical parking thing....i have since striped all my truck logos except for Five Star Lawn Care across the front windshield, and i never keep the plow in the driveway for more that a couple of days....they tell me that they can cite me for the salter, but i have pushed my luck and havent got one for it yet. They even tryed to cite me for haveing the 24' enclosed at the house when i had just had it stolen that following week and was looking for another yard...

    So where would be the best place to meet and what day/ open to anything probably something out by 12 oaks would be best for everyone.

    Oh yeah the salter too but mine is hitch mount so I just pulled
    it off and put it in the back yard. as long as everything is out of
    site he said its not a problem. Truck lettering is on the
    windows so I just pop them open and tuck trash bags over them.
    Really startin to run out of space over here no room for growth as I would like to form a 2nd crew in 2003. And Ill be in
    this house for at least 5yrs.
    Eric,do you share a yard with another company or just an
    outdoor storage space. Id love to find A few others in my possition to rent a building with Ive heard this is what others
    have done.
    This time of year Im not doing to much unless it snows.
    so anytime youd like to meet up and shoot the sh!t is cool it
    would be a lot better than sitting in front of this computer.
    What area of Livonia are you in? Im over here off 5mi behind
    Rent X. I think I may have seen your truck last summer at mobil
    at 5&Middlebelt is your Ram blue?
    Anyway if your bored give a call as Typing sucks and takes
    me forever to post. Seems we have some common intrest after
    looking at your profile and close age.


    Look foward to meeting with all.
