I went last year, definitely looking forward to going again this weekend! It was an awesome event, incredible variety and prices.

 

FWIW, I paid ~$10 a frag and got a bunch of different stuff, I'm happy to say most of it has survived a whole year later despite a hurricane and blizzard causing over week-long power outages.

I ordered a few frags from Tiny today. Transaction went extremely smooth. I will post back on product tomorrow once I receive the frags. Very easy to deal with.

Been there done that. 18 years of plowing and this year is making me hang up my plowing hat. Paid more in commercial auto insurance than I made this winter.

yeah. its been a rough winter. I dont mind plowing though. This is the first issue my truck has run into. and i only paid $1700 for it .. put another $500 into when i purchased it doing brakes, leaf springs, windshield.. etc but all in all shes a sturdy truck that rides great. I dont owe anything so even if its $1000 to fix its still cheaper than a loan payment and insurance. In NH you dont need to have auto insurance.. lol so for now i dont :P

cooler works fine. All the sellerss will have access to power so the water should be warm. just bring a cooler. you could grab some hot hands heat packs and put them in the cooler with the bags of corals to help keep it even warmer.

 

but a cooler in a warm car is fine. just acclimate by floating in the tank so they dont get temp shock :)

But you need commercial auto insurance to cover you if someone sues you for a slip and fall. If your insurance guy tells you a general liability policy will cover slip and fall accidents he is lying to you. Trust me got sued 2 years ago for a lady falling in Boston Market parking lot. My commercial auto covered it all. Lawyer fees and settlement was 105 grand. No insurance they will take everything you own. Only way to not be liable is to have a contract signed stating that the person signing assumes all liability and by signing this contract releases you from all lawsuits judgements and claims personally and business. Just a heads up my friend.

I have always gave priority to my residential first. Commercials are a bidding war but can give a handsome reward if you bid them right. This year I have 4 apartments and 2 subdivisions for commercial. 56 residential mowings and 196 chemical accounts at least 4 rounds some 6. But I like to spend alot of money so I don't mind working 70-80 hour weeks.
