Stupid technical question.....I have a slew of PM's in my outbox but it doesn't look like they were sent. What did I do wrong?.

They will move to the sent box once they are read. Until then, they stay in the outbox.

After some snoopin' for coal in Michigan, here's what I have found:

BAGGED

KW Feeds in Farwell Mi (989) 588-0549
$325/ton and will deliver for $40/ton

J&J Log Homes in Jonesville Mi (517) 398-1655
$276/ton. Stocks Rice, chest nut and pea. He can get stove on request but doesn't stock it.

BULK

Nobiles Landscape in Farmington (248) 474-4922
$336/ton. Keeps nut on hand.

Brickscape in Wixom (248) 333-2800
No answering machine to leave a message.

Reading Coal
$176/ton and you can arrange trucking for a bulk shipment.

Blaschak Coal
Have to go through a dealer.

SO.....some progress on the coal end. I will be contacting a friend of mine that owns a large dairy farm and see if they ever have grain hauled in or out to Pennsylvania. Might be able to work a deal there.

Did I miss any other known Michigan sources of coal?.

The place in Flint doesn't carry anthracite (so they said).....it's some funky hybrid from Virginia :gee:

There are a few more places I did call but they didn't sound like a sure and steady supplier.

Lester Bros. Excavating said they carry nut for $90/ton bulk and were just about out (I assume that's not anthracite as it's way cheap). They do sell bagged anthracite though.
