Sadly it is not available where I live. However, there is an alternative way of getting it that I would like to explore. Apologies ahead of time if this is in the wrong forum. First things first:

1. I do not have a pickup truck so would need to borrow one or have someone else pick it up for me.

2. The company is in Fort Pierce, just over a three hour drive from Tampa.

3. They are only open from 8 - 4, M - F.

4. Would need to shovel the sand into the bed of the truck.

Those being factors, $20 for a ton isn't a bad deal at all so I would like to know if anyone in the Tampa Bay area would like to go in on a purchase. As it stands I only need between 200 and 250 lbs. If four or five people go in on this then the cost is roughly $8 to $10 a person (gas included) for 400 or 500 lbs. Could be more or less depending upon how much people need or how many people would like to get in on this. Any thoughts or ideas on doing something like this?
