    Man at least bring a shovel and get paid a few bucks to shovel the walks while the guy driving does the driveway!

    It's great that you are willing and wanting to learn though.

    Actually, one of the smartest things I've heard a youngin' say on here...If your serious about learning the business. If I may suggest, First qualify the company, so your not just wasting your time w/ some yahoo. Try maybe contacting a mid to slightly large operation, and offer to assist any way you can. Like it was mentioned, offer to clear the walks or fill a hopper spreader...better yet learn to run the salt truck. Hang out at their shop and learn how to service the equipment as well. At some point if not from the start, you should get paid something for your time, even if it is discounted. I see so many new guys just jumping in completely green each year and then they have to learn too many things the hard way, not to mention the expenses that are incurred in the process of them taking a loss. Many set themselves up for failure before they even get started :cry: If you do it right, you can gain more knowledge in one season than what could take several years for someone who's completely green and still never learn how to make any money...just my 2 cents.

    I said something similar to a guy recently, so I can't make any smart ass comments.

    Good for you. Don't value your learning time too low though...unless you have to.

    I was lucky that way.
