I need a little information from anyone who might be reading this. Two things, one of which is probably too fanciful to actually pursue.
The first item is a good pair of inexpensive shoes for the clipless pedals on my bicycle. I already have cleats from my previous pair, which are too small for my spreading feet. Anyone know of a store or two in the greater Salt Lake City area that I can go for such a thing?
The second and fanciful request for information is relating to an idea I had this morning. It occurred to me that if there is a sizable discount on gasoline in large quantities (200-300 gallons), then I’d like to check into the feasibility of putting an elevated fuel tank (bottom about chest high would probably work) in my back yard. It might be impossible or impractical to do.
South Jordan has a habit of not allowing anything that might detract from the beauty of its neighborhoods, and more importantly the property values driving its tax base, so they might strongly object. If that’s the case, it might be possible to fight for a zoning variance, but that’s time-consuming and probably also expensive.
It might cost too much for the tank itself, and I might run into high costs for permits and ongoing inspection fees. There’s also the logistics of getting a supply truck in there regularly to refill it when it gets low.
Should I even start looking into it?
