    The answer I got was Alpena or Saginaw. Most likely there isn't any more available from either at this date.

    Lotsa salt in Canada. I ordered a tractor trailer load and the receptionists asked me, how many loads I wanted. Im sure theyll go cross border

    Green Bay has salt. If you buy it from the dock it is about $120.00 per ton. That is quite a bit more than I contracted it for but they have it. I do have people that will truck it if you are interested. They went to Kentucky last year to get some.

    You are on this site asking everyone else where you can buy bulk salt in Gaylord. Then when a couple of suggestions are made, and you say it sounds good "IF THE PRICE IS RIGHT".

    Just a thought here, wouldn't the time to get your supplier and price for salt nailed down be BEFORE the bid went in? Perhaps it is just me, but this method of doing business is why this industry is so messed up.

    Ever think maybe it was a last minute call for me to bid the account and I don't have the salt pre bought? Maybe its people that jump to conclusions and slam someone with not knowing the whole story? Yes I have enough for my jobs but sorry 125 a ton is out of my price range for me to do a good job. I'd rather pass up the account then have people say I don't do a good job. You run your business your way and I'll keep my good rep around here. Thank you

    It is hard not to jump to conclusions on this site. Nice to hear you have a good rep. Must not do much work though if you only need 125 tons for a season. You get an waful lot of snow up there.

    not a big need for much salt, only a few places want it. most want sand only or a salt/sand mix. that makes it go a lot further.

    Ever been to Gaylord in the winter Mike?

    I wouldn't think they'd salt much of anything.

    You know what I meant, I think.

    It's a different world up there other than 75 and M72, they just don't use that much salt. Cuts off the ability of the snowmobilers to travel from parking lot to parking lot.

    I know you know a lot. And TCLA is correct.
