not really sure what your asking,but if you mean daily schedule ,we have sheets with each days route printed on them ,we check them off as they are completed ,and write down any info we feel important .The sheets are set up with the address,phone numbers,names ,and services requested so hopefully we dont make mistakes .We generally dont lose any customers,and are not really looking for any more ,so for quite a few years now our routes have remained the same,so the sheets are probably a little overkill for us at this time .

I am trying Gopher this year, because last year I tried to use a "monday lawns" "tuesday lawn" wednesday lawns" ext. method, and week-long spells of rain $%#@'d that attempt up.

I carry one of those personal planner/notebook type things around with me. I also have 2 notepads....1 for quotes and 1 for notes.
At being 28 yrs old, I find the old school method of non electronics works best.
