    and yet the results can differ so much...

    hoe many hours and efforts have you spent explaining why you, the professional can and will do a better job than the last goober who for all intents and purposes has all the same gear you do.


    but not the heart and anal retentiveness it take to be a real pro.



    case in point, my neighbors and I both used the same wood sealer on our identical fences at the same time..

    Look at the application inconsistencies that are showing up in the rain today..

    just how * are you?
    Looking forward to the DISC session at MF to see what personality is really capable of being a cleaning gawd....

    It was eye opening one time I sold a truck mount to a guy who was just getting in the business. I did a demo at one of his customers, an insurance shop. He had some experience, mostly with portables. I fired up the tm and showed him some basic wand strokes then let him take over. There was a night and day difference in the areas I cleaned and what he cleaned. Exactly the same tm, wand and chemicals. The only difference was the way it was applied. After many years in the business, you get a feel for how much cleaning solution you are using, how fast you can move the wand, where to speed up or slow down. Experience is always the best teacher if you are willing to learn.

    Not sure if it answers the question.
    So you moved all the way to freaking Nevada, just to have your neighbors this close? :winky:

    The difference is between process and pride.

    Mike stirred his stain and prepped the wood better.

    I moved to get away from only certain types of people Ofer.

    I grew up in a track neighborhood, and I'll die in one.

    My time off is spent in the woods or high desert playing, not scooping horse shit and plucking weeds.

    So is the difference the ability to follow directions. Not everyone can.

    The ability to be consistent over time? It can be difficult.

    Be strong enough to actually do the job? Not everyone is.

    To care enough to give it your best? I don't always.

    The ability to keep focused on the teadious task? It's not always easy.

    Lots of reasons some are better than others.

    Get with the program cowboy:
    1. The kids do the horses (well paid).
    2. The horses eat the weeds. Then they poop (hello #1).
    3. I don't need to go away to be in nature. I just walk out the door and there's mini Yosemite.

    Synergy buddy. Synergy!

    Would you like a drawing? :winky:

    Tried the mobile thing. Didn't like it.
    Besides, I can't. Just put in an orchard. 8' fences, gates, 29 fruit tress. Back breaking work. Love it.
    It's my equivalent to your motorcycle hobby.

    Tots can't leave. They've been shackled. We are now working on brain washing. We tell them every day how happy they are :winky:
