    I was kidding. I see some people here that list every pc. of equipment they own down to the pruners on their belt. I could write a list 3 pages long. We try to pay for everything in cash if we can. We have the Hustlers on "same as cash" and will pay those off this season. We would be in debt if I didn't insist on the use of older trucks. I like them for several reasons. Cheap to buy, cheap to maintain, and generally tougher than what is availible now. So far it has been the right choice.

    Everything is paid for except the new F250. I paid 1/2 in cash and financed the other 1/2. Not much of a note on it.

    Let's just say that I have a bunch of equipment for a one man show. I even have a spare trailer. Everything is paid for except for my Dixie and I owe 12 more on that.
