Happy Easter to all! I just wanted to post a comment about all my time disappearing. I live in a rual community. We have lots around here starting about 1 1/2 Acres and they can go way up from there. This past year we have had a lot of people bringing in campers until their homes can be built. A friend of a friend was looking for someone to clear a pull through path so they could get a 26' camper onto the lot without damage. This is very heavily wooded. So my friend asked me if I could help. When talking to the property owner, she and her husband told me a contractor wanted $2800 to do this. When they told me where and what they wanted, I was blown away. They then asked me what I could do it for and when it could be done. Well, I thought a weekend. I don't really know how long things like this take. And I asked if they could do $800. They then handed me $600 and asked if they could pay the rest when it was done. There were no trees to cut. There were some downed trees to move and between the grapple, boxblade and bucket I had it done in 8 hours. Now while I was doing this 3 other couples stopped and said I was highly reccomend. I'm sorry what??? This was my first attempt! How on earth does one come up with any kind of price to do work like this? I feel bad for charging $800. I mean they let.me play on my tractor for 8 hours!! I enjoyed this time. I gained some knowledge. And as you all know it's pretty relaxing. I find it hard to believe one neighbor can say something to his friends and all this extra can happen! Thanks for reading. And if anyone has any input please advise!
