    I'm thinking of getting into the bulk salt gig next year. The past 7 years, I've been using bagged salt. It gets a little tiring opening 75-100 bags of salt everytime is snows.

    Couple of questions: Where can I buy bulk salt next year around Lemont?? Is there a place I can have them load me up everytime it snows?? Do I need to buy at the beginning of the season and figure out a place to store?? Can I leave bult in the spreader covered or will it become solid?? I don't know what size spreader I would by yet but Im assuming a 8-10 footer on a pickup.

    Just trying to get as much education as possible before I decide to make a switch.
