    Canadian Lumber in Tokyo

    When I was out at my DIY shop, I noticed that they had some Canadian lumber on hand, still wrapped up, so I snapped a pic for you guys...........

    Looks like a BC company, Prince George as a matter as of fact

    I think I'll send them an e-mail with a pic attached

    Prince Rupert is in a state of emergency after a fire broke out in a plywood mill.

    Wow, that is some blow to the Prince George economy

    I would also guess that plywood prices would be going up too

    Theres no sense to Ken, don't even try.

    I used to haul wall board mud out of Gypsum Oh to customers in Jersey, then load out of Jersey with wall board mud for Pittsburgh. I've never figured it out

    I definitely need to add some bulk container shipping companies to my Roth IRA...

    Neat to live in such a small world, huh?
