Package Barrel

The steep part of the driveway became so eroded the USPS truck couldn't make it up and wouldn't deliver packages. My solution was to build a package barrel from and old 55 gallon drom. I cut the end off and sanded the rough edge. I attached two  metal posts to the bottom and drilled a few drainage holes incase rain got inside. I also put a stainless steel baking cooling rack from IKEA on the bottom to raise the packages up in case there is a little water inside. This has and will continue to served me well until the driveway is repaired. USPS, UPS, FedEx and Ontrac all know to leave packages here.
Jaypeg is providing scale.
