heyyy...

im only going back with 700-800 pounds of pea coal, and I have the weight distributed from the trunk to the back seat to the front passenger seat. No different then then a car load of 4-5 avg size guys.

If I could figure out a way to put some 5 gal buckets on the roof of my car I would :D

Im heading there tomorrow, hopefully the roads are clear tomorrow of the snow that is falling now ... and hopefully they have some pea coal

I can fit twenty 5 gallon buckets in my pontiac sunfire!

Drat! I am about out of coal and was counting on the roads being clear today to make the harmony run . Now it is snowing again at this writing.All this snow has got my carefully orchestrated supply/demand "just in time" system fouled up good. Mike

Just called harmony and they don't have any pea coal and they arent making any till it is warmer out. I asked if she knew when that would be and she told me to ask a weatherman :lol:

So either ill go there and buy some buck or see if calvin lenig's have pea coal

I made three trips in my pontiac sunfire today to harmony mine. When I called this morning the lady told me they didnt have any pea coal. Well what do ya know I get there and drive by the bins before I go to the scale and see they do have about 2 tons of pea coal. So I guess that lady didnt know what she was talking about when I called her this morning.

Each trip I was able to get about 700 pounds. 680 first trip 720 second trip and 720 third trip.

i took some pics with my cell phone.

So over all I loaded 57 buckets of coal in my car today and my back is a little sore.

My parents claim they got my name from a soap opera, but I don't know what one. I was born in 1983 and would like to know what soap my name was used on.

The nut bin looked to be completely full. Well I guess it is nut. It was the last bin to the right if you are facing the piles of coal. I think it goes from left to right ... rice, buck, pea, nut if im not mistaken. Rice was completely full buck maybe half or less pea almost empty and nut if thats right was almost completely full as well. I always call before I go. I think its a good idea to do so. Although the information you get (as I found out) can be wrong. There are other breakers in the area if they are out of what you want. Im sure coalburner could give you the information on the other local breakers.

I look at it this way. I had approx 700 extra pounds evenly distributed throughout my car. trunk to the back seat to the front passenger seat. My car can hold five passengers and has five seat belts. Ao if you assume I am carrying 4 extra passengers (and I have before) they only need to weigh 175 each to equal the amount of coal I was carrying. I don't think it is anything my car cant handle. I would put more weight in it if I could fit more. I would think your truck should be able to hold at least 1,000 pounds. I wish to god I could afford a truck and a trailer. It sucks having to make three trips just to pickup a little over a ton of coal. But I do what is necessary for my family. Those three trips only cost me about 12-13 dollars in gas for all three plus my time, but since im laid off I have lots of free time so that doest matter right now. I would love to be able to get 2 - 3 ton on a trailer and only make 4-6 trips a year depending on the trailer, but for 150 a ton you cant go wrong. the trip takes me about 33 minutes one way on avg. I could get coal delivered, but id have to pay about 190 a ton. We don't have much money so I do what I can and with those 3 trips I only pay about 163 a ton with gas money figured in. so to me it is worth it. Not to mention that the coal from harmony is so much better then the *censored* my local place has.

I passed about 4 cops during my three trips from the breaker. not to mention that I pass the state police station each way when I go to mt carmel for the coal. The cops never gave me a second look. Nor should they. I am not overloaded. I could carry more coal if I had the room. If I did get pulled over I would probably tell them to suck a nut, as its no different then having 3-4 passengers in my car.

wow that's funny because my mom named me after a soap opera actor too. she told me before but I cant remember which but ill find out. I can actually get 3/4 a ton on the toyota but I never like to overload nor run it hard. it was kind of my dream truck since childhood so I take the best care or it I can. I will be up there within two weeks and then well see what I can haul!! :)

Them ladies up at Harmony know more about coal then half the People on here The 3 tons of pea came down from the top of the mountain off the pile that is all they had left up there when you called in the morning the pea bin was empty
they refill the bins threw out the day

jc, I wasnt taking a dig or knocking the lady. she told me they didnt have ne pea left and werent making more till it got warmer. so I doubt they brought more down. she probably figured the rest of the remaining pea was sold. I wish I knew as much as the people at harmony know about coal. no disrespect was ment in any way

Naw...You are an A-1 Harmony Man...Can't see 'ya takin' shots,digs or dishing the disrespect. I never met 'em,but I've got to figure those ladies are a big part of what makes "The Run" to Harmony so good. Now,about the Sunfire...Maybe it ought to become the Coalfire. Tear out the seats. Shovel it in direct. We'll figure out how to unload it smartly in the next couple of posts. God only knows.......
