I plugged the holes yesterday and sealed cracks.  This morning at 6:00 a.m. I was outside and made a reinforced plywood top, applied silicone to all seams, put a foam gasket along the top of the wagon, and laid plastic and a tarp to waterproof the lid.  Then I took guests fishing; it rained mid-afternoon.  My truck is now back in service after sitting in a shed for the past couple of weeks loaded with fibre. The bin is full and serves its purpose, namely, to get my wool protected until I am done farming and can clean it.  100 fleeces are now under cover and awaiting cleaning.  I really am looking forward to using it…
