Depending upon the value you place on average album weight, that works out to over 300 tons.
So if a tandem trailer can carry 17 tons, that would be nearly eighteen trailer loads.
Who's gonna take that?
260,000 albums / (4 albums/lb) / (2,000 lbs/ton) = 32.5 tons
Seems like you lost a decimal place somewhere. That said, my back and shoulders ache just thinking about moving it all - - so your basic point is still pretty valid!
I was using a nominal value of 120 grams per album for a total of 1099800 oz or 68747 lbs. Definitely missed resolving the decimal point in low light.
That's 34.3 tons. :)
