Reading "E Myth: Landscape Contractor - Why Most Landscape Companies Don't Work & What to do About it" n y Michael Gerber & Tony Bass and "Green Side Up" by Ed LaFlamme have rly helped out my mindset with the business and implementing systems for everything, it makes too much sense. Both books don't necessarily claim you easily become a millionaire and can kick back on your yacht all day, but that it is certainly possible to become wealthy in this industry ads there are thousands that have.
went to Yellowstone last year.. beautifull but I will never go to another Nat'l park. felt like I was on a habitrail with 100,000 foreign tourists. I didn't drive 1000's of miles to sit in traffic then stand in line so I could see a waterfall. accomidations and food were disgusting, very sad and disappointing. Jackson hole was awesome, horse back riding, white water rafting, eating good food, high end resorts. The kids still talk about Jackson hole but have not mentioned Yellowstone 1 time.
Yeah, we weren't planning a lot of time in Yellowstone. My oldest wants to go to Old Faithful, but we are going N/S through the Badlands, then through the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Jackson Hole down into Utah,then up Pike's Peak before heading back.
We always talk about Yellowstone,
especially since me and dad were chased by Bullwinkle
back in '72. My uncle had an art gallery in Jackson Hole.
He still has work hanging in the Morman Temple in Salt Lake.
We went to Yellowstone in the late 80s and we were stuck in traffic for many hours because a rock had fallen onto the road and it needed to be cleared by a loader. We literally sat in the same place for 4 hours but we probably didn't get to our destination until 8 hours later. Crazy.
The coolest part of our trip was when a bison ran across the road and straight up a mountain. You'd never think an animal of that size could be so nimble. It was a cool experience but not good enough to ever get me to go back.
My wife and I went to Yellostone a number of years ago. We took our youngest son (about 12 at the time) and drove our old 19' MH. On our way we went through Custer State park in SD. The MH had the door in the back and we stopped to feed some wild donkeys. Son was feeding them out the back door and when he ran out of bread to feed them, he turned around and moved into the kitchen area to get more. He didn't shut the door. One of the donkeys followed him in. Ever tried to teach a thousand pounds of donkey how to back up when there are 5 of his brothers behind him. Finally grabed two loves of bread and spread them around about 50' behind the MH. He finally got the hint and left to join the others, but not before he left us a present on the floor. Son still talks about it.
