    Supposed to go down Tuesday morning and start. Still getting some prices from yards. Already agreed on prices with the owner. I'm in talks with yards between 1 hour and 2.5 hours away.

    Agreed! This area of the county is known for rattlesnakes.

    Haul the 1st load out today 2397 pounds. Roughly 840 pounds romex, 790 pounds thhn, 652 pounds med-thhn, 110 pounds bx, mostly aluminum, 10 pounds Low grade.
    I will tell all of you, when you get some quantity, shop around, ask for higher prices and don't be afraid to drive a little ways to get it. I did quite well for myself today and the owner did quite a bit better.
    Going for load #2 tommorrow. Hoping for a little more weight now that I have a sense of what it looks like.
    Will have to do a 3rd load also, but that will be alot less money as it will be mostly aluminum.

    holy ****! That's great! I assume the breakdown category's are what your buyer is buying? And the #1 copper a bonus!

    I am going crazy, this guy should have just separated what he was taking home each day and took it in himself.

    Don't give us the money earned if you don't want to. I would be inserted in money paid per pound paid to him for the wire you bought. After all you had to go out and get the better price for it so money earned is not necessary.

    Selling the bx as is for now. Al bx price is pretty good. Steel bx price is low. I think I have another 100 pounds of that. I'll probably strip the thhn out of that.
