The right thing to do i thought . ok well i like to go camping , my kind of camping is in my 36ft motorhome , have a ski boat . and all i used in the summer time when i had 5 weeks a year vac. time .. ha ha last year i went camping 1 weekend , boat on the lake maybe 5 or 6 times . i was working bout 15 hours a day 6 days aweek . well I HAVE TO MAKE THIS BUSINESS WORK . I PUT bout 40k to start it up with. i wanna do things little different this year , so i may be asking for some help from the real pros out there . thanks guys sorry for being so long winded

Hi Vern,

Welcome to our forum!

What made you choose lawn care ? Also what made you decide to buy all that equipment early on? Did you think about starting on the cheap at first? Give us some insight into all that.
