    Tom's story is inspiring because he is a fat guy who couldn't possibly do this work for a living. Yet he does. He is a brilliant marketer, motivator and implementer.

    I know there is no comparing the two,... But when you said "out of the trunk of his car", it was a familiar story.

    I picked up 2 airmovers today and put them in the trunk of my car.

    I feel the same, but am I a guru now?

    If I were not fat I would have to use a portable.
    Instead I use the high production easy to manage equipment called truck mounts.
    Seriously I have maybe cleaned 20 homes in 7 years.
    Just saying. LOL

    Thanks for the kind comments.

    We started with a $1500 used bane clene in a used Ford econoline with 174,00 miles on it.

    That's pretty darn close to a hatchback and a shop vac. We do own a couple shop vacs though.

    the Bane and a used van is way more then a shop vac and a hatch back. I took the intro obviously to serious. Having enjoyed your presentation in Santa Cruz I will make sure I tune in on the 12th. And thank you ahead of time for sharing.
