Just be sure to call first before you go to make sure they have the size coal you need. I was there around 8 AM this morning before the worst of the snow hit. I got 1-1/4 ton of rice and I doubt there was another ton left in the bin after I was loaded. There was decent piles of buck, pea, and nut though.

another member always use to come up with a 5x9 or 5x8 trailer and put in 3 to 3.5 Tons before he bought a truck

let me know when you are going to be traveling, so I can be headed in the opposite direction! If anything happens, the money you would have saved will be a pittance compared to the paperwork involved in retaining your freedom from the judicial system......and hopefully no one other than yourself will become a footnote in history.
If I can carry 5,000 lbs. on a trailer with a 2,990 GWVR ..... those should be good for 5 - 6 tons easy!
