Hauling plywood

making plywood fit in a small trunk

Went to the big city today for an eye check up and some plywood.

2 feet is a handy size. I used to be able to fit 40 inch wide segments in my Civic if I folded the seats down...but that car got wrecked over the weekend so I will have some new measuring to do soon.

Sounds like a corollary to "you're a real farmer if you know how many bales of straw will fit in your car."
