Just got back from selling the old parts Jeep for scrap.  Cars up here are up to $185/ton!  Not bad considering prices this past year or more.  It brought just over $340.  Glad it's gone....tired of looking at it!

All other scrap steel is $165/ton, batteries 20 cents/pound.  I didn't ask about aluminum cans.  I have some, but too windy to deal with them right now.  I also have maybe 20lbs of copper.

I got 0.10 a pound on aluminum breakage here. Prices seem to be a little better right now I hauled my 16 footer half filled with long iron and made $67.

Wow, I was so impressed with Geico with Kaylin's claim that I just did a quote online and got better coverage than I have right now, I saved over $300 a year by going ahead and signing up with them for coverage to start the day my present coverage expires in April.  My collision deductible will now be $250 instead of $500, raised my uninsured operator coverage AND liability coverage, plus added rental coverage (in case of damage) for the Mountaineer.  

  All their people were VERY courteous to Kaylin and they handled it FAST!   $300 a year savings with better coverage is a no-brainer, especially since I saw 1st hand how well they do business.

Got another load strapped down to haul tomorrow.  I figure around 3,000lbs on this one, maybe less.   Likely 300 to 400lbs of smalls inside the old fridge, and there's some heavy pieces you can't see.  I'm here to tell ya, the pallet forks I built are priceless!  I did NO lifting anything by hand at all!  And don't worry, the old parts tractors had no viable parts left on them.  All was seized up that I hadn't taken off.  The good parts I already salvaged.

Glad the forks are a viable tool for you! That 716 looks better than Alice when I first got it!

Even though I didn't lift at all, my shoulders and neck are starting to really hurt.  Hoping tomorrow will be better.  This isn't any fun at all!

I've used geico for years. I've crashed a couple cars and had random deer damage claims. They paid quick and the last time I totaled a car and the woman asked me if it was enough payment and I said I could use a little more and she gave me another 500 bucks. But maybe she just thought I sounded cute.

You aren't going to post those on craigslist and call them "rare" and say they "ran when parked"?

 

Sorry, couldln't resist.

Ya'll seen the good side only in the pics.  Hood was cut out on other side, and seat pan crunched.  

  Today was another of those days where I got nothing accomplished other than hauling the load of scrap early am due to visitors ALL afternoon.  So Teresa and I may do the big circle tomorrow, hitting flea markets and vendor's malls.   Just depends on how I feel in the morning.
