    Well 8 years ago I was incorporated. So far it's been good and I enjoy being an owner. Someday I might even get off my beach chair by the ocean and do some work!:D

    Don't use a Dodge with a Curtis plow?

    And go seasonal!

    Congrats man.

    We dont have the amount of snow you guys do for a homeowner to warrant a seasonal price. One year we can have 3 plowing events, the next year we'll have 12. Ive tried talking a few people into it, but without consistent winter weather patterns they feel they will lose out.

    18 years for me. 17 on my own. Been a blast. I'll be shutting down after this year to pursue other interests - like the option to go someplace warmer in January for the first time in my life prsport I am only 33, this is all I have ever done. The money is great but the schedule sucks :cry:
