I was thinking the same thing the other day. It seems like as the year is coming to an end, more first year people are throwing in the white flag.

So true! I think everyone thinks its easy to start a business, then reality sets in. Then again, if the Jersey Shore cast can do it...

I think he was shooting for next year. Probably just working his regular job, hanging with the wife and waiting for the season to start.

I took a little break from the site as I prepare for winter and get ready for the snow. Always try to stay 3 months ahead of everything.

I heard he got killed in some kind of shoot out on the mexican border. IDK, could just be a rumor though

I hope he's doing well. That shootout sounded pretty serious when I read about it, no word whether or not he is alright.

Anyway, that's what happens when you steal 100 pounds of cocaine from angry Mexican drug lords and try to make it back to America safely. At least he was driven to a U.S hospital.

Its just strange to post every hour on the hour every day then nothing. he was posting after he got married. Maybe he decided to get out and do his regular job.

although anything is possible which can be for any of us i don't know if i would come to the conclusion that someone is out of business just because they have not posted on gopher forum in a while.

i don't mean any disrespect to the forum and the people on it because i do like it here but if i am not mistaken i think andrew had a pretty full plate with getting married and having his house getting flooded as well as trying to start a business.
anyone of the above scenarios can be a life altering experience for most people and even if he is having trouble with the business most people who start one have high hopes and dreams and are slightly blinded by the high hopes of success.
it is more difficult today to start a business then it has ever been with the state of our economy and the exuberant costs involved in running one.

when i started my business 23 years ago it was tough but there was also only half the landscapers that there is today as well as things like equipment, fuel, insurance and regulations were also cheaper and to some degree we do not get much more money for our services today as we did 23 years ago.

many people start businesses today and fail but that has been happening since the beginning of time and i don't think it is anything to take lightly or mock someone for or to take pleasure in when to some degree we are all a few bad chain of events away from failure.

as i said i don't know what the deal is and i am not pointing fingers either, i am just saying, that's all.

i am sorry if you took my reply as if i was singling you out because that is not what i was doing.
i was just simply adding my two cents into why he might not be posting lately plus even though i quoted your post my reply was not based on your post only it was based on all the replies.

i know we had other threads on "what happened to" with others here like weekend warrior that seemed to burn his bridges but my memory of andrew was that he was a OK dude and it seemed it was heading in the direction of the others.

once again i am sorry for the misunderstanding that you might have thought i was pointing fingers at you or anyone for that matter because that is not what i was doing.
i was just trying to throw some suggestions as to why he has not been here lately with some further clarification and i don't think anything i said was that bad to where you or anyone should have taken offense to it.

i bet you did not know that string trimming was a art form and that ryobi was a extension of his hand which was a conduit to his imagination.

yeah, that broom always got me when i seen that photo. it's not even like a quality push broom and it is more like something grandma would use to sweep the kitchen floor.

yeah the weekend warrior always had a way of bringing people together to laugh at his sideshow circus and seemed to always bring it on himself.

Ohh I know, I offered to pay for lessons. He was only charging a dollar a day. I just couldnt afford to take the time off work.

I wouldnt knock a guy for trying. Even if he was cutting grass with scissors but this guy had it coming to him. He was mad when people offered advise and offended when told anything that contradicted his way. Then after a few weeks was high and mighty like he was a 20 year vet.
