Mark? My comment wasn't directed to YOU. I was referring to royturning's neighbor who spent thousands of dollars trying to save seventy dollars.

Tripping over a dollar to pick up a dime is my way of saying:
Tripping; over thousands of dollars to pick up (save) seventy dollars.

I don't know what you mean by society not having "honor among thieves" or what having the keys to the inspector's car trunk means. Your comment makes you sound like a very sad man.

And if you're impacting any wetlands or streams, you may need a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and in some states there are state-level laws protecting these resources.
