    You think so? According to Wal-Mart's wiki page there are 3513 stores nationwide. You gotta believe a large chunk of those are in non-snow states like Cali, Texas and Florida.

    You're awful :jester:

    Between Supercenters, Sams Clubs, etc, I heard the whole RFP was over 5,000 locations with more then half getting snow of some kind.

    Where's the worthless attached map? I'm afraid I'll have to guess then..........

    At $1,000.00 all inclusive for each you will gross 2.5m!

    If Santa can hit every home in the world in 6 hours with a few Canadian deer, you will have plenty of time to make your dreams come true. ;)

    I'd do the job just for gas money. Maybe a free coffee from the DD every storm too. Think of the advertising potential......

    Put a big sign on my truck, maybe a flashing light too.

    I thought that would add to the value. and it gave me a good chuckle.

    Well according to my boss that number could be a lot lower if I didnt "sit in here with the @#$%^&* air conditioning on all day" I dont know what he wants, its 80 and sunny, and i'm warm I mean i'm upstairs in an office, hunting down customers, new leads, and making fun of misguided fools on plowsite, might as well be comfortable.
