Hey of anyone coming tomorrow, do any of you own a pellet stove and or have some pellets that I could liberate off of you? I am too cheap and don't need a 40 lb bag. I know a bag is only $5.50 but I only want like maybe 5-10 lbs of the stuff. I guess I should just go buy a bag and throw it in my garage.

Any help on some pellets would be much loved! Cool


VW,

I will bring pellets for you.
and maybe I missed this part . . . what time are we meeting? The normal 2-4ish?

Awesome CJ, I was not sure if you would be making it and all my local stores are out of pellets. Funny things is in Ca. I lived in the mountains and use to buy pellets buy the truck load and then split the truck with 5 other people. We would each get a pallet or two depending opn how many stoves you had. I had one gigantic one.

Yes 2pm is the gate time.

Hal is it the same type of pellet? Hard packed compressed?

Same type of hard packed compressed. They're shorter-length and *maybe* smaller diameter, but should work for testing purposes without you having to commit to a 50# bag if you can't beg a few handfuls from someone...

carterzest - Thanks, I think I'm all set in that dept. Just need to find someone to do some very minor body work.. maybe I'll meet someone who does this afternoon Wink

On a side note, do any of you going need a pair of Tyrol XC skis? They have the scales on the back (no wax) and the 3-pin bindings. They're too long for me (195's) and I need to give them away.

See you soon.

You guy have fun.
I left my van in Boulder, sounded like a good idea at
the time. Now I'm here for at least 2 weeks longer
then I had planned.

A boy and his Syncro should not be separated for
this long.
Have one for me.

Had to skip the meetup today, much needed nap time got the best of me.

Hope you all had a blast.

Wish I could have made it unfortunately I had other commitments and this was my excitement on Saturday morning.

Guy ran a stop sign as I was going through the intersection and this is what I ended up with. Ouch! If there was any good news it was that the driver at least had insurance.

Might be looking for some advice from Pete and anyone else in the PDX area that has had to wrestle with the insurance adjuster.

Hm-m-m-m .... bummer, bummer. Nothing good about that except you have a weekender rather than a full westy which really could have damaged the whole kitchen unit and hook-ups. Sorry about your woes.
