    Actually one of The OM's best contacts has massive freight out of SC. But that's not really that close to GA.

    I’ve sprayed, put down granules. grub stuff, Crabgrass killer and preventer, enough to either get the weeds, and crabgrass, or kill the whole lawn. Crabgrass took over last year. Now it’s due or die. Kamakazi time. Nothing to lose. The great weed war is on. No more worrying about using too much. The hell with it. No I’m not a Lawn Maniac, like my neighbors. I obviously have no idea what I’m doing. Hired a neighbor kid to cut the grass. Wife planted her annuals in her pots. Put all her little shuggie decorations out. I’m so done with the lawn, it ain’t funny. Looking forward to an oil change and crawling around in the gravel greasing the Truck. It’s that bad. Lol. On a positive note. Nice weather ehh? Good Luck with the weeds. Finally made it Vinsetta Garage, had an hour wait. Saw a $16 hamburger on the menu, and decided not to wait. Went down to some Cajun Bayou restaurant near 9 mile. Shrimp and catfish PoBoys and spinach artichoke appetizers. It was good, almost affordable. Almost authentic. Had a few cars out, only notables were a Black 72 Camaro and a 69 GTS Dart. New Challenger sitting there, barely noticed. They’re so common anymore, I no longer want one.

    If youre really that "done" with the lawn... Get a few gallons of gasoline and spray it on with a weed/bug sprayer, thats how you kamakazi a lawn... Add a few drops of dish soap to the sprayer tank with each refill if you want to go full nuclear. Then in August or September lightly till and replant... Much cheaper than all the other crap on the market.

    Never heard of using gasoline. Heard of dish soap, beer.

    Ever spill a little gasoline on the lawn while filling the lawn mower then a dead spot appears there a few days later?... Green things dont generally like gasoline... Dont cut it with water or anything... Just staight gas and a few drops of dish soap added in, spray it on heavy when the lawn is dry and the temps are cool. Then cut off the water completely.

    FYI... Dont smoke while doing this... LOL

    No!! No!! I don’t want to kill the lawn. Just the weeds. Planted seed last year, came in good. One big spot died thought in drought. Crabgrass took over. I’m planting new seed now. Sprinkler systems all working, still need to hook up automatic timer, for when we’re gone. The goal is Less maintenance. Less grass to cut. Almost there.

Think it will work in my Classic? Or just be in the way. It’s heavy, doesn’t really need to be mounted, except for safety. I’m debating. It has 4 good cup holders. Guy wants $50, maybe less. Their $130-$200 on eBay. I’d never pay that much. Honest opinions? I’ll probably be on my side, next to the seat. So I’ll be the one having to clime over it. Going to measure the Truck space tomorrow, Also going to try to make some extra shelves.

    I know there’s no more effective way to deal with a yellowjacket nest in the ground than pour some gasoline in it.
