    As my personal plow is still about three years away, I've volunteered at my church to be the third man in their rotation. Today I met one of the guys at the garage and walked through the plow rig. It's a late 90s (it was dark; I don't know exactly what year) F-150 with an 8' Boss Super Duty. Thanks to all the knowledge here, I feel comfortable trying to "build a better mousetrap" as they say. Lot is about 1 acre of asphalt, with no obstructions. Guy showing me around explained how he pushes to the back the lot, then backs up to move over one row. I've read countless times how "if you're not going forward you're not making any money," so I think I've already found a way to cut down on time as well as wear to the truck. Thanks everyone for your knowledge, and I'll try to post updates as I earn my way into your community.

    I didn't explain that very well; that's not quite what I meant. I'll explain more once I figure out f I was right. I'm excited for the first snow, and I think it's great that I accidentally did it the way most here advised, by using someone else's gear.
