Just a thought...

Try contacting your local Public Works Dept, you should be able to get about 20 bags, for free, this time of year.

If you are in Pinellas, you can pick them up at the Fire Stations for free and they will give you white sand to put in them as well.

LoL..itll cost me more in gas/time than what they are worth. thanks though.

I went to a couple fire dept. and went to public works, no dice. They dont have any and dont give them out unless its a hurricane on the way. . Ill be honest, I was surprised at the lack of willingness on the Public works ppl. I may have to give a call to the mayor or something.

What are the sandbags for? You could always goto JOANN and pick up some burlap. If your making a ghillie suit I will tell you right now it is really not worth stripping all the sandbags you will need to make a suit.

They are actually for my 4x4 Blazer, I want to keep them in the back incase I get stuck and need build up a base to get unstuck. I found some online to order, but was jus seeing if anyone had any post hurricane supplies.

Huh never thought of sandbags in the truck. I do have a Etool and 5000lbs ratchet strap that come in handy. Etool digs your out while the strap makes sure you dont go in any further.

Welp ive been high centered b4. what you do is put sandbags under the wheels ,etc and then dig out the high centered part, so when the vehicle comes to rest, its on the bags, not sinking in more of the mud.
