cars, trees, buildings, power distribution boxes at campsites.. that was funny.

ok so I fixed my driving lights, now Ive got a damn blinker out, I usually just solder another blob on the end ( it wears away in about a year)
but I cant find my soldering stuff, son has it stashed somewhere, so im off to buy 1 more 1156 bulb, after this im going LED in the blinkers too.

ive got only 650 watts to spare, so I need to be conservative with the lighting.

Doc,

If you take your truck down to Little Rock to get those wood boxes it shouldn't cost you more than $400 gas.

Yea by the time you pay for fuel your better of just going to the lumber store and buying it. Or just check around for a house being built. There is always tons of left over wood.

It's close. 380 miles round trip equals about 20 gallons of fuel at $3.50 per is $70. Lumber to build the boxes would be about that, maybe a little less.

Then again, we're gonna sell 'em to Doc for $20 a box, so that's $160. We're in the black!

Of course free is always mo bettah.

yep, spent $74 in fuel last time and got 60+

companies sell similar hinges alone as a "kit" to make planter boxes for $19.99

even at $10 per box they are a bargain, but if scribe and I are willing to spend half a day, and make the trip, we should be able to get them for a couple of bucks per box.

they stack well and are solid, very good for this purpose, ive been using them for a couple of seasons now.
