Wow . Wish I had a dumpster like that to dive in. All you find in my area is a hole lot of bug kill pine that has the blue color in it.

One man trash is another’s treasure. That is quite a find. I am afraid I would compulsively check that dumpster, to the point of stalking almost. I am a long time dumpster diver, I don’t think I have ever scored like that. Cool.

I climbed out of a dumpster one time, but never into one!

You should do as Nelson fears, and stalk that dumpster!

Maybe if you move it one foot per day towards your house, you can gradually train the guys to bring it right to your back yard.
