Default thinking of a new rig..

I was sitting at a light the other day and an old guy came out from wal-mart in a mini van and I noticed that he had a JD rider in the back of the van.. I looked 3 times and have been thinking you know what, why not.
Note to self:
1.)get a mini van 2.) get a set of ramps 3.) get a thule box for luggage rack for trimmer. 4.) hooks to hang the blower inside or out.
You picturing this sweet ride yet.. I mean just think of all the ad space these things have.. windows galore..

I should have trick out a mini van on photo shop to go with this post, lol..

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
LOL!
I keep seeing this little Ford Tempo here in town and one of these days I'm gonna get the chance to take a picture and post it on here. They somehow neatly stack 4 push mowers in the trunk and then bungee cord two weedeaters on the roof. Then they cram 6 people in the car after that, with the one in the middle holding the gas can! Now either we're dealing with true Missouri rednecks, or we're dealing with very talented and educated people who have studied the physics behind space managment. I appologize, but there ain't no way I'd hire these people to mow my yard! Kinda reminds me of the "Bob Newhart Show" when that guy was like, "Hi, I'm Larry. This is my brother Darryl and my other brother Darryl".
On the flip side, I must admit, that atleast these people are willing to work. There are far to many people out there who should be pulling their weight.
