    I'm right with you Lefty, it's all we use here except we get it for $27.00 a case.

    We are having to use Krylon Chalk paint at the present - Horrible - supposed to fade faster, is dull, and only goes about half as far, and barely shows up in pre-digs

    It can be kind of hard to find a good spray marking paint since they tend to be runny or can sometimes get in your face depending on the direction of the wind. Abatix.com has some that come in a variety of colors. Here's a link to one marking paint: (spam removed)

    WOW... It is a rare occasion when spam gets by me. I even corrected the link cause they didn't know how to do it.

    AND... on top of that I went to put in some kind of smiley to punctuate my point and the smilies are all messed up. I gotta get that fixed.
