I used to do that, actually for much longer than I wish to admit. (Seven years) and I always ended up with smashed, knicks, flung around truck because I needed something inside of where I was storing it.
So many scenarios I’m not going to type them all.
I’ve seen those Ettore plastic tube things that some receive, however, I have never received anything close to that in my orders.
So I figured I can reuse all those stuff if this didn’t pan out.
I can cut the tubes shorter if needed but I like the size they are, and I can keep some water inside them that I refreshed every few days as to prevent mildew and other. I might try storing them dry soon and see how they survive.
I used 2” diameter pvc but I think 1.5 would have worked fine. And if 1.75 existed (pretty sure it doesn’t) that would have been best.
I’ll keep y’all updated… speaking of, anyone else have any awesome ideas or inventions they have done lately.
