    It seems to me there will be more scrap in an area with a more dense population

    Your question reminds me of another.

    "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" is a philosophical thought experiment that raises questions regarding observation and perception.

    A wealthy city would generate more valuable scrap.

    They haven't been signed back in since about 10 minutes after they posted.

    Maybe they were just fishing and they had many more ponds to try for the BIG one that most are after.

    I was curious as to if they were in Europe, or planning on going there on a fishing trip.

    I would think in some areas of Europe the regulations on scraping would determine if I would try in a particular city. There so much about the world I don't know but bureaucrats love them some regulations. Mike

    Some jurisdictions require licenses to operate and sell. I have UK in mind. Larger cities and agglomerations can generate more scrap, but they will generally have more competition and more traffic jams. If you have existing contacts in some area and can develop your own route of customers, you will probably be able to generate a more stable flow of revenues.
