Default Good Tip

Good tip. I do check there frequently, it's just nice to be reminded every once in a while. I wish I could get my wife to remind of this stuff and not everything else.

Default Thanks!

Thanks CrazyEd, A coworker and I went over there Friday. I picked up 20 T-posts, my buddy grabbed 60. Most were 6', with a few 5.5' thrown in. We left about 1/4 of the pile there.

My wife is the bargain shopper, in our house, and she checks Craig's List, every other day. Very handy...

With the exception of my ATV all I ever get into on craigs list is goat ropes,,, Either the price goes up when I get there or it is not in the condition described. On my ATV I actually talked to the guy for 3 days on and off the phone, When i finally went and looked at it I was supprised it wasnt gone. I was pretty gun shy to drive 2 hours to look at it based upon the add but after talking to him did. Glad I did, cause for 1500.00 that little king quad is the cats ***.

Actually after talking to my father it is more like 100 posts for $50. The best part was "thanks so much for hauling these things away". I guess they just put up a new fence for their horses and this was part of the old fence.

You just have to keep your eyes open, search for t-post and tpost and fence. I search every other day and you just have to move quick if you find them.

These 30 or so have a slight bend in them when they were removed.


All of these are ready to rock and roll. Can't wait for apple tree planting season.

We are planning on adding a small fenced in plant & tree nursery on our farm. These posts will come in handy. 8 foot telephone poles. Found on craigslist. The seller had 100-150 telephone poles ranging from 4'-20'. Price = Free. We took a few for our project. Even when cut to 8' length many were too large for my dad to load up so we just took some smaller ones.



Another guy was planning on taking the rest to fence in 80 acres of hunting land. Keep an eye on Craigslist y'all!
