Heres a helpful trick for searching CL.

Go to google, and search "site:craigslist.org (whatever you are looking for)" it searches all CL listings with those key words. Of course you get listings from all over the US, but I have found many deals using that technique.

Well I picked up a patient today, and we started talking about tractors, and he said he had some kind of tractor on his property that he wanted out of there.

Well that perked my ears up. HEHE. He said he thought it was a 2 wheeler, that it had a hood that tilted forward, had tall tires, and maybe a 2 cylinder engine. He said if he has time tonight, he is going to go out and look at it.

I have to pick him up again in the morning so, I WILL ask him about it again.

2 cylinder means something with a Wisconsin or a JD.

I was hoping it had steel wheels.

You are on a roll Pat! That's better than spying them alongside the road.

You also know everyone has to go to the bathroom from time to time... It's worked for me.. I wouldn't do it every week. but here or there couldn't hurt. Especially if you let your boss know.

I will have to careful with stopping and looking the Vans I drive have GPS units and they can track me, also I am driving a Government owned Van so I don't want to get in trouble.


Easy enough, do not pull into a driveway! you can just park out front and walk up. they use GPS to determine where the vehicle is and if you are in a road, no harm no foul, however once you pull into a drive, all bets are off...
