Ok, guess that settles it.  Time to re-institute the triangle trade.
Need to go to TX to pick up the in-laws 35 ft trailer and the truck to
haul it.  Gonna haul shrimp and okra to Iowa, pick up a load of real
sweetcorn for Oregon (guess it'll have to be the extrasweet types) and
then bring a half load of rock to you in LA and half a load of
construction grade cedar to Harry in MS.
