Re: As long as ......

Rumor is that China is looking at digging a new trench through Guatemala or Honduras .

Either way do we really need bigger boats when the little ones are standing in line....??

Any chance it is a sign we are deciding not to buy their little trinkets?

I  wouldn't  bet  the  ranch  on,  not  buying ,  kinda  like  $elling  a  US  R.R . to  foreigners ,  so  those  preferred  $tock  option$  can  be  energiZed ,while the  only  time ,  politicians  have  the  mute  button  on -  -  - 

The  words  Railroad  '' crossing ''  have  expanded  meaning$ and  the  farm  financial  folks  are  speechless    -  -  -

Re: As long as ......

Suppliers are telling me the problems exist on both ends.

Hard time getting containers and having them loaded on a ship and delays getting ships unloaded.

As fast as they can fabricate containers it seems odd they're hard to get. (steel supply??)

Problems aren't limited to China.  Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia and others having issues as well.

Deliveries are uncertain but one thing is certain = prices are rising dramatically.

Perfect example = some M6 self threading bolts we use were quoted at $0.05 last January = $0.27 now.

Can't afford to just retire and farm.  Will need social security to be a supplement.

$  L  O  W    the  supply  chain ,  WALA   price  elevations  ,   along  with  a  good  dose  of  con-$olidation  -  -  -

Remember ,  we  were  sold - told , con-solidation  would  be  more  efficient - ?                                                                           Try  to  price  discovery that ,   with  2 - 3  dealerships  per  state   -   -   -
