Relax,Mitch! You've been around here since 2008,so you've seen a lot of Folks make the mistake of moving fast and regretting it. You know: "Act In Haste,Repent In Leisure" You've got the money others want. I like your position. If it was me,I'd figure it this way: I've got to figure that you might be able to find some bagged Blaschak available to finish off your Season easily. Try it out first. See how it performs for you. Don't get 7 tons of it. I've seen Direnzo's have a Rabid,Cult Like Following here. Sounds like good stuff! The Guy you've been doing your Cartage Business with is Broke Down. He knows you. Ask how long he expects to be down. Is he or has he been a Hoser in the past? If he's good,stay on board with him and don't Panic Shift to another Hauler with another brand and Turkey hunting on his mind instead of Business. If you have to,call DiRenzo's and take 1 minute explaining that you Love their Coal,Your hauler's Down for A Long One,And Do They have a list of Folks that would haul 10 tons to Your Place. To hell with it. After this Winter and now the problem you've encountered,I'd start an Overlap Stocking Program on Your Property that will keep you ahead of whatever Winter Demand,Availability and Potential Future Budget Shortfall Problems that you might encounter. Of course,it's you're money to outlay,so it's up to you. Good Luck,my Proactive Friend ! Hat's Off to you !
