    Hey guys, he's closer to me (same town), so I should naturally get first shots on any recruitment attempts here! Fiftycav, if I steer you in the right direction for affordable snow plowing insurance, would you purchase it? ;)

    Landmans numbers are about what I would have posted.

    Hey Big River,

    Its your friend from Across the way on Hamilton Street. Yup at the funeral home. I am looking for some work this winter and it would be great if you could take me under your wing. How much are we talking here anyhow BRL (for insurance)? I want it to be worth my while you know. Keep in mind, I have another business to help run and my time behind the wheel would not be 100% reliable. I could pretty much work out arraingments though for someone to cover when a storm hits us. Thanks for the in put:waving: :waving:
