    Hey Guys,

    I've been a member here for a while, just thought i would introduce myself.

    My name is Mitch, and i'm fourteen years old, and own my own company, DreamScapes Landscaping. I started when i was ten, mowing my neighbors yard and things have grown a lot since then!

    I get my driver's permit in February, allowing me to drive with an adult (mainly grandma, she's my #1 driver). Its getting to the point in my business where i NEED a truck. So right now, i am looking for the truck i've always wanted: a 95-2000 Chevy/GMC K2500 with less than 100k miles. Next season, i plan on putting an 8' Western on it, and start plowing a little with an adult/employee with me. I've always wanted to plow, and am very excited that the time will be here.... soon!

    Here is the link to pictures of my equipment: http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=197450

    Thanks for reading!

    first rule of thumb when buying a vehicle is try not to fall in love with anything right off the bat, take you're time and dont jump on the first truck you see just because you get excited. make sure to have it checked by a mechanic then go from there.

    Good luck in your business ,you seem to be doing very well for a 14 year old.

    Thanks! I've learned not to jump when i see something. I've been in and out of places ALL year so far this year, and i'm finally finding deals. I'm very specific in my questions i ask sellers, trying to not buy myself a POS!
