    I was just looking to hear from any fellow members in the little state of DE or MD eastern shore. Doesn't seem that there are many of us here from around here. I would love to work with some of you guys and get be able to use you as back up or me. Love to get together with a beer if there is any one out there from the area.

    Nice i live up in Dover Townsend Bros does all the service on my tuck they are great people there. Nice well if you need some help let me know.

    I current do my HOA and a few dr.s offices and i am ready to dump my HOA they are such a PITA. They are part of the Del DOT reimbursement for plowing so they will not cut me lose until the state web site for our zone reaches 4 inches. and there maybe 4 inches on the streets here but not 5 miles away here the sensor is the grounds keeper is i don't know its work and i hate to turn it away but some time you have to deal i guess right??

    if you are ever down this way we should grab a cold one :drinkup: be nice to meet up with some others from the site. this place is great and everyone is so helpful.

    Sorry Late out of the gate!

    Hey Guys,
    Just found this part of Plowsite. Its a big place. Thought I would chime in so we don't feel so alone. From just outside Wilmington and I hear yah on the HOA's. 4" to start reimbursement but with the hill up here you can't not plow. One good wreck and that is all she wrote. Found them much less likely to sue for any damages then parking lots and commercial sites. Delaware is funny when it comes to slip and falls.
    Have a great Christmas Holiday!

    glad to see that there are a few of us out there. HOA's are a PITA but decent money and they pay fast which is nice. so there has to be something to be said for that.

    OH, ummm... Hey, count me in too.
    Near the airport... had clients as far as 20 miles away. (not thrilled but money is money)
    Haven't done much in the last few years (got fed-up w/stupid people) but gearing back up for this year.
    Looking to sub. and maybe for a backup for what I've got.

    (My housing development wants me to plow. there are about 15 other guys with plows that live here and I'm wondering why no one else does it... must be a reason)

    What are HOA's?

    George
    goin back to sleep...

    Nice...to meet you man. glad to see there are a few of us from DE here. I am looking to maybe do a little subbing my self and work where i can to make some money.

    HOA=Home Owners Association. They all seem to suck. I plow for mine and they are just a royal pain. Good fast pay but you have to cater to them. Ahh like you said money is money. I wouldn't mind teaming up with a few of you guys i only have the one truck and skid but wouldn't mind maybe going after a few larger jobs if any of you boys that are a one man band like my self want to give it a go.

    well lets hope i have my fingers crossed. not looking good for this winter. got a feeling its going to turn more into a lot of sitting around and doing this....:drinkup: we all should plan a little get together around here. Maybe if we all get together we could do a snow dance and make something happen!
