Was going to wait until I got thru all the posts before I commented, but I couldn't wait after reading your post enola. I have hauled so much stuff in my 98 Toyota Corolla, in fact we just hauled 6 hens to Manton in the back seat last Saturday. Last spring before my compost got going good I went to my BIL house and picked up a load of cow manure in a large tote & brought it home in the trunk of my car. It is my truck. Went to TSC Monday & picked up 4-50# bags of All Flock Raiser & 3 bales of shavings. Threw it all in the trunk & back seat. I guess if my car was newer I might not do that, but I've got to work with what I have.
