    I just wanted to say "HI" to the board. This is my first year that I will be plowing for myself. I wondered if there are other women on the board who are in the business?

    I hope that you will give me a lot of advice as I need it.

    Flipper, welcome. Strange that you posted, I was wondering if we even had ANY women contractors on this board.

    How long have you been plowing?

    Welcome Flipper.

    If you use "SEARCH" on the menu at the top, you can search for any topic that you would like to learn about. Chances are no matter what topic you are looking for, it has been covered.
    If you can't find what you are looking for, go ahead and ask away.

    Does this mean we have to watch our language now that there is a lady in the room? :eek: just kidding, we are all perfect gentlemen here. :rolleyes:

    Sometimes Maine seems more like a Canadian province that a state, Rob, so count away.

    Dave - gentlemen? maybe. Perfect - absolutely.

    It is not about man or woman here. This group will help all equally you've come to a good place.

    Have you checked out SIMA at www.sima.org ? It is a great organization fro the plow contractor.

    For the record my wife drives my K-2500 GMC with a 7.5 foot Western like an ace. I may hate to have to say it but she does a better job than some men that I have given the wheel to for a try.
