I don't believe anyone can argue with you on this.

But the point I keep going back to is that Crusher Run is comprised the majority of fines. Dust.

Like I said, I even posted pics of a compacted crusher run base. The pic is worth a thousand words. All you mostly see is......FINES!!! (DUST)

Unfortunately, the HO Can return the unused portions, I think a better revenge would be to devide it in half or one third so that they think they can do it for $1500 in materials amd then have to get $3-4K more with delivery. (If they order the right amount the second time.)

Have fun returning a few skids of brick, 6 yards of RCA and 3 yards of sand that are dumped in your driveway haha.
