    I got a good deal lol. I bought it from a dealer in Dekalb who is good friends with my uncle. He replaced everything and anything that needed replacing, changed the oil etc. If everything hadn't been fixed I wouldnt say I got such a good deal but with the peace of mind behind it now I believe got an awesome deal lol.

    Nahh that's ok. I can picture what a red 2500 4x4 dodge with a reg cab and a long bed looks like.

    Where's most of your accounts at?

    Mark, everything I do is in Cary, I am 17 y.o. and am keeping everything pretty low key right now but have everything worked out to go legit at 18 if I choose to carry on with my own venture. Oh and I really call it Oakwood Landscape Concepts, but thats too long for a username here so Oakwood Land. it is.

    I figured being 17 or 18 you weren't all over the place. I'm rarely in cary but do enough driving around that I'm sure I'll see your stuff somewhere.

    I'll probably end up seeing you eventually mark, I'm planning on keeping the trailer at the stable my mom has her horse at on 176. or maybe I'll give george (peters) a call to see if it wouldn't be a problem to stash it somewhere on his property.

    What barn on 176? The one between dean and sunnyside?

    My truck is pretty easy to identify, never seen another that matches it.

    My house... no way lol, I'm lucky enough to be alive after steadily taking over 1/2 our garage with mowers amd everything else. lol. Actually now that I think of it maybe it would fit backed into the garage... just maybe. I'm gonna try to entertain the thought of finding somewhere by me, might even mae sense to rant a parking space at a storage place.... I'd probably spend the same in gas coming to and from woodstock.

    I'm assuming the trailer is open and if you wanted to keep stuff on it I wouldn't feel safe leaving it at a lot somewhere. You could keep whatever you wanted on that trailer if it was at the farm and no one would mess with it ever. I'm sure during the winter you could probably leave it at the farm behind one of the buildings so its out of everyones way until spring time.

    I was thinking the farm was my best bet. I'm sure I can find somewhere that's out of the way. I have to give him a call tomorrow, kinda rude to show up with a trailer asking to keep there IMO lol.

    Just pull in and dump it off behind one of the sheds. I think they will be out doing beans so they won't know you were even there,lol.

    I'd offer to let you keep it here at my house behind our shed but we have enough trailers to walk around already. :cool: Its like musical trailers when it comes time to mow around/under them.
