    Wow. That's scary.

    It's good that she thought quickly enough to look them up! I'm sure if nothing else, it saved a host of future headaches.

      Yeah-my spidey senses and the rules have helped me avoid things in the past. She was smart to check. Avoided shenanigans, I'm sure.
      Even duct-tape can't fix stupid. But it can muffle the noises.

        My spidey sense red flags went off asap. I would not even have volunteered the possible rental of the 5x5 or anything after that. I know, I know, you had to be there but I never want to move in trouble. Glad it went ok in the end.

          I agree Pac. Mine went off ASAP too. I would have never went as far as she did. Good for her though, trying to help.

          Always go with your first gut reaction.

            The "skittish" actions of druggies and thieves give them away and if they will not look me in the eye, GOOD BYE!

            I learned a long time ago that I want to control the conversation. IMO, that is over half the battle. Gobs of red flags in that story.

              Or you could electrify your current fence with a box/wire used for horses/cattle. IT won't ~kill~ them, but it packs a punch. I'd know, I've bumped into a few. ...

We use storEDGE and push our discounts...

              This expanded metal comes in many thicknesses and sizes. The 3/4" and 9 gauge is likely much heavier than what you used for your trailer ramp. The 4x8 sheets that I'm looking at cost about $60 each, but the added cost of galvanizing and delivering them to my facility is what bumps them to ~$100...
