    what? There's somethin invented a few weeks ago, it's kinda new so I won't rag on you for not knowing it. It's called a period. They also have these things called commas. And good luck getting someone to tell you how much they make.
    And just to answer the first question; twelve.

    trainhorntruck dont worry about Boss I know what you ment.

    I started in1986 with 15 driveways in 3 towns and an F150
    second year I had 30 accounts. and maxed out.
    thierd year I got a jeep (brand new from the junk yard hit a parked car on a test drive) for backup. Used the jeep 1 time and sold the truck.
    4th year had 45 drives
    5 th year condensed rout to 1 town.
    6 - 11 year had around 75 houses.
    12th year added 2nd jeep and driver added ~25 houses
    in 2000 I sold the rout and got a job in high tech programming.
    in 2001 I got layd off.
    in 2003 I contacted all my old clients (that the guy that bought the rout didnt want) I got 100% of them back.
    I now have 90 drives 3 jeeps and no snow :( (going to add more drives next year)

    Only one is residential.

    3 are large apartment complexes, 3 to 4 truck hour jobs.
    For the most part this winter every storm has started late in the day so that we plow these apartments
    thru the night. A lot less traffic to deal with that way.

    I'm 31 years old and have 10 years of plowing snow for my self, I have 35 drives and one apartment building this year, use to have atleast 50 resi's a season as well as other lots. I'm just not snow crazy like some others on here lol.

    The only reason I keep doing it is because if I don't I'll be hounded by other contractors to work for them in the winter months.

    Started out YEARS ago with a big storm and the old man's borrowed snow blower. Now doing 12 residentials, 23 commercials, 3 churches and 7 commercial walks only. Total of just over 14 acres total plowing and 3200 Ln Ft. of walks. Just got done updating with a new spreadsheet. No wonder I'm tired after it snows. Ready to be more tired.

    I'm heavy into condo driveways... But lets just say I have hundreds of drives. Some big lots also.
    It's all about the tractor blower combo.
