The price of lumber in the US has gone through the roof, plywood, 2x4s, etc, are roughly 1 1/2 times more expensive than it was before and no one knows why. Oh, and apparently it's not COVID related. :unsure:

Lumber is up almost 400% since this time last year.

Lumber industry blames it on hurricanes & floods all the way back to Katrina.
Certain locals have a residential housing boom as a result of sellers market, lack of houses for sale.

That is happening where I live in GA, and we are having a shortage of houses for sale. The housing market is crazy here, 1800 sq ft home where selling for $175-180K at the beginning of the year. Same house by the same builder are going for about $230K now. In a month they jumped almost $20K. It's nuts.

Now there is a shortage of qualified truck drivers so they expect gas shortages in the heavy recreation areas as people travel for the summer. AND there is a shortage of ketchup packets at fast food places. . .
But at least the sandwich store has a funny bathroom door indicator!

I sent the attachment to my boss. His response is attached. Sad we cannot get people to take very good paying jobs due to bad public policy. This is not the political forum so I will not comment further here.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
