    Yes me and and grassbusters went out to Denver...Instead of talking about it we did it..picked up a couple of john deere skid steers in Nebraska and hauled them into Denver. We ended up running both of them for about 40 hours each. We left thursday morning and just got back. Im a little tired so ill only post a couple pics for now , but we took almost 200.



    Headed to Colorado

    the lot we were working on, hard to see but this was taken from the middle of the lot. the snow was all windrowed to the center. It was about 4' deep , 15' wide and 3-400' long.

    How hard was it finding work once you got out to Denver...........and did you get paid COD or is the check in the mail?

    I someday want to become a storm chaser.....chase snow storms of a winter and hail storms of a summer.......travel the country and make some payup

    through phone calls we got a contract signed with 10 hours guaranteed, that would basicly cover our expenses, After working for the people we promised work too , we just picked up the phone book and called every plow company there, and drove around. Ended up with about 40 hours of work..

    The check s in the mail. But we made sure we had signed contracts with every one.......

    We got it running again, but there was no way we were gonna pull a skid steer 1000 miles.
    easier to just rent and pull them about 350 miles...

    That was basically the coolest thing we have ever done. Parts of that area got over 3 feet of snow! We had a total blast, made great money, no problems. Ill do it again in a heart beat:drinkup: We would just pick up the phone book and call every company in there saying that we had skid loaders looking for work. the responses we got were "YOU HAVE WHAT!!, how fast can you get to the east side of town!!! never took more then twenty min to find work
