round pen

Bo't one today. Guess what, prices are going up. What else is new. Anyway, I hadn't planned on having it delivered this early as we still have more than enough snow but as luck would have neighbor is going right past the place. It's about a 3+ hr drive each way from here. He will pick up my trailer today or tomorrow and they will be loaded in there. The panels can remain in there out of the weather until they can be put up. Free delivery. The only thing better than that would be free panels - in my dreams. Finding used panels is like panning for gold. Your chances of a lucky strike are next to none.

Steel has gone crazy in the last two years, raw steel was about 38 cents a lb. two years ago, today it is about 46 cents a lb., then add shipping, paint, wages, insurance, etc. to make stuff out of steel, like your panels, it adds up to crazy.
Scrap steel is selling for 10-12 cents a lb., so used stuff is getting scraped because it is worth so much....


May all your Trails be happy and safe ones
