    3 years ago I taught in a local university and made a few extra bucks I mowed but not that much. Last season I mowed like crazy, paid off all my equiptment and insurance and made some bucks after that (lots more than teaching college). This year was terrible. It was like a mowing company in Death Valley. Made enough to pay insurance but barley enough to cover expenses, and about the same customers. I actually enjoy mowing more than teaching because I work in the same environment I teach in and perfer to be outside. I know no one really knows, but think next year could be as bad as this one? Might take next year off. I am really just thinking out loud. Teach or mow?

    Nah, no benefits teaching but I have full time job. I can use the sure money, but I like to mow and sometimes it is a lot more money to mow.
