    Better get your plywood now for your leaf boxes!!!!!

    I decided to pick up my plywood tonight for my leaf box I've been planning. Because I remember when hurrican Andrew hit plywood prices shot up around here. I'm glad I did because the guy at the store said he got a fax today that said supply will be hard to get soon and his cost will be rising over the next couple weeks.

    Just thought I'd let you guys know!

    For this year at least I've got my Dad's new GMC TC4500 dump truck. Its brand new so its going to be a swett ride!! I'm going to make the box so that it will fit in any 1 ton dump body. Its going to be about 7 x 7 x 81/2 feet which should be around 15 yards. That should be plenty big for my Little Wonder 16hp which will be on a swing-away hitch.

    We are going to offer leaf pick-up service for the locals this season on top of our normal fall clean-ups. Hopefully all works well. I didn't get much response from a previous thread I put out about that.
