    Well... All of the months of planning and getting organized are finally hitting the pavement this weekend, both physically and metaphorically. With funding now secured, business license in place, and Revolution Cleaning now semi-officially operational, my wife and kids and I are taking a brief road trip to So. Cal. to pick up our truck!

    We'll have a week back at home, only to head back out on the road to AZ for a week of training with a family friend. Then when we get back into town, it's doors open for our official launch on March 6. I'm beyond excited!

    For everyone that has been helping/giving advice over the last few months since i started posted, y'all are awesome! I'm so grateful to have found such a great group of mentors and collegues as the TMF family. You will be a continued resource I'm sure as we hobble our way through our first year and solidify our market position. I'll of course keep everyone posted on our progress, starting with pictures of the new rig tomorrow! (I seriously can't sleep, I'm so excited - last time i was like this Final Fantasy 7 was releasing on PS1 and i was 15 ha ha ha)

    I know it's not your point but the ff7 remake is in the works and I feel like I'm 15 again. I have been waiting far too long for it

    Congrats on the biz also

    Totally agree with you on the remake. The brutal and shocking murder of Aerith in the original still haunts me lol - completely destroyed my innocence as a teenager (or at least what was left of it ha)

    Thanks for the kind words!

    @OldCarpetVet I have to ask... what plane is that in your picture?

    That's what I thought, but I wasn't quite sure. JEALOUS!!!!! I will worship the ground you walk on if you tell me you own that beast!

    I lived in Wisconsin for a while and got a chance to check out the B-17 they have at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh... Not the BUFF that it's successor is (you can't beat the 52), but it's a sweet sight to see...

    Love those older planes!

    I OWN IT! Start worshipping. :D

    Seriously and sadly, I do not own it. Wish I did. My son took that picture at one of the many air shows I go to. The P-51 was my favorite WW II fighter plane and the B-17 my favorite bomber of WW II.

    As for my all time favorite plane ever......why, the SR 71 of course. The only sub-orbital plane in the world.

    Simply BADASS!

    Kevin, you are close to our office and manufacturing plant near Salt Lake (Murray UT for the locals). Stop in some time and I will give you a tour of manufacturing, mixing, bottling plants and the warehouse. Just let me know when you are coming to be sure I am not in a meeting. :)

    Well... We made it home! That was a fun trip with my wife and three kids to Califor nia. (Sarcasm)

    Now come the fun of inventorying the massive amount of stuff i have, figuring out what I need, plus having the truck serviced, wrapped, website built out, logos and shirts made, business cards, and flyers. Not to mention 800 other things that I can't even think of cause my heads going to explode. . .

    Life just got real lol

    Best thing about those little guys was the horrifying, shrieking whistle they made. They have a small flock of them at Monroe Air Field once a year, and it's incredible to hear (they also have some Zeroes there, but that's another story, lol). IIRC, after they decimated the Luftwaffe, a German official was quoted as saying he knew it was all over when he heard Mustangs over Berlin.




    Kevin, if you've got a chance to meet face to face with Scott, DO IT DO IT DO IT. Like, right now. He will help you settle into your new business without losing your noggin.
