    Two 17 year old kids.
    One two wheel drive 1996 dodge dakota, trailer
    1 snowblower
    2 shovels
    salt

    how man small drives do you think we could handle?
    How should we bill/charge?
    all of this would be within a mile from one of our homes, so we arent crazy for the 2wd truck.
    been plowing for 2 years, no acsess to truck or job, next best thing for the season

    Our schools cancel for rain so theres no doubt in my mind we wouldnt have to worry about that in a storm, and worse comes to worst, we miss the morning or afternoon classes. still not haveing my original questions answered though

    Thanks, i've been talking to a couple other kids my age with similar situations and they are charging about 25 per push for the avg. driveway and walkway. and about 10 a driveway for salt.
