Default The chore of scheduling jobs

I just finished manually inputting my mowing jobs for the year into Gopher. Took me 15 minutes. Go Gopher!

Now I can look at last year's routing and tweak it for more efficiency.

Hopefully, I'll be able to purchase a larger and faster mower so that I can compress my 5 day schedule to 2 days and add some new customers because right now I'm packed.

Looking forward to a great year.

five to two days would be awesome seems quite dificult. Just get a mower that can take a lot of use like a SCAG and that has at least a 17.5 hp engine. Good luck with that. Keep us updated about how it goes.

Haha. That's a typo. I meant 3 days.

Here's the crux of this thread: If anyone is wondering how difficult Gopher is to use, I've now got all my mowing scheduled for the entire year.

I've just reached 100 customers in my database with 48 of them being regular weekly customers. I'm really ready to get this season going!
