When my son was a junior in HS, he played football and baseball, obviously his after school activities were taken up by practice everyday. There were times when he would leave FB practice and go right to BB practice.
He also wanted a Z71, so he took a job at a Sonics to earn the money for insurance and gas. I would buy the truck.
I had to go pick him up from work one evening and got there a little early and parked off in a parking lot to observe him working. I was so moved by his dedication to his goals, I told him to give his notice and I would set him up in a little business.
I purchased a a new commercial PW unit on a trailer. It had a Vanguard V twin 18 hp gas engine, a General pump, Hot water heater, 250 gal holding tank and 200 ft of hi pressure hose.
He and a team mate would leave out on Saturday mornings, canvas the town and county, knocking on doors drumming up work.
He would make enough money on a Saturday $2-300 on many occasions that easily made his insurance payments and gas bills. He learned some very valuable lessons during those three years he operated that rig.
