    You're looking just to pick it up?

    Herches in Oak Park has it i'm sure, and Michigan salt also has bulk available as far as I know. I'm pretty sure they all have a minimum load, etc, but it's worth checking into.

    Not like this is close to you, but the guys at Angelos in Wixom told me they're bringing in 400 tons a day from the UK. That's a lot of salt..

    sorry.. whats a lead?

    They're selling it for 125/ton, but (forgot about this) I think you had to have a bulk purchase history in 2007 to get it, though that could have changed now. I'd check the website for you, but it's not loading. Also, i think that they might have a max of 10 ton/day. At least that's what the guy at the counter told me a few days ago.

    I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to get around the previous purchase history part.. just have to find someone that bought some before and have them call...

    They might actaully be open now for tonight, 888 angelo2 is the phone. you could call and ask.

    Man, Angelos is alway open.

    A lead is the larger and front trailer on a gravel train. The back one is the pup
