    What do you full time guys do in the winter months? Only 3 months here in Houston. Not sure what I will do in my first offseason.

    I shut down for Dec and Jan - take a vacation, do all repairs, visit pro-green expo, collect past due $, + all other prep, planning, and purchases for new season.

    I did cover for a buddy that plows so he could take vacation, he sold out this year, I wont miss it a bit.

    My brother works construction and a lot of those guys (around here) work retail at christmas time since weather slows work.

    Lay on the couch, drink football, watch beer, and check the mail for those monthly checks to come rolling in.
