State mandated expense of $5500, I’ll avoid bitching too much about it but it’s hard to swallow for the expense and the lifestyle it enforces.

Thankfully, Vermont abounds with great people. I rode the bucket down the tank pit 😀 I wouldn’t say that the ride was worth $5500 but maybe if I could drive the excavator a bit we’d be there. I got to decrease my bill and learn the ins and outs of my septic system by working alongside Eric & E.J.. I hope people like them never go away.
