    Hello friends,

    The future after I'm dead;

    The year is 2103. The landscape industry is beginning to see growth as never before. Since the automobile is a collector’s item and everyone is using the hovercars, old roads and highways are being tore up at an incredible pace. Suddenly grass is replacing blacktop, trees are being planted where freeways once existed. Shrubs have become commonplace where stoplights once ruled the pavement and LCO’s are having a field day with their stripes and all the credits they are making. Landscape companies are becoming the “Microsofts” of this century and ZTR’s are 12 feet across with 7.3 Powerstroke engines, (fortunately Ford Moter Co still has the engine and saw the new market coming). And…

    and.....I think you need to wake up.....:D

    Sounds cool. Steven Speilberg would make it into a movie soon I think.

    Heck I would think if that did happen we might be out of jobs. Everyone would just let the grass grow. Hover right in over it and set down the car. No need to see through it, your driving over it.

    .............and Synthetic turf! All our kids kids will be in different professions.
    Also, they'd be using the new 6.0 powerstroke, which would then be like a 2.0 with emission standards. :(

    NO NO NO!!!!

    The pro's who can stripe will be the new DOT's!!!!

    Blacktop will become grass roads with stripes to show the direction of travel, 21's will be used for making turn arrows.
    Shrubs will border & define the roads and parking lots.

    A few years after that highways will all be in the air. Like the Jetsons. Striping will become the New way to advertize, along with multi colored turf grass's.
