Business Thru Barter

A friend recently asked if he could get rid of some earth. He was doing major landscaping around his house & had about 10 dump truck loads of dirt. The county here charges $175/ton to dispose of topsoil at the county landfill. We estimated he had between 15 - 20 tons of dirt.

It just so happened we had a huge area in a field by our entry road where the previous owner removed gravel/stones for our entry road & left a big unsightly hole in the ground. I always hated how it looked - I drove by it every day.

A few days later, we had huge piles of topsoil covering the hole in our field.

The guy came back with a tractor & leveled it all out. No more eyesore in the field!

Great deal! By the way- Dave and I were talking about whether it would be a cold winter or not. He said "they say-- you can tell if it will be a hard winter by how much wood the white man cuts."---- I thought about all the wood Randy cut at your place!!! Yikes!!

If that's true, it's going to be a cold, cold winter!!!
