Lucky you, keep driving east and watch even your price double, I see some gougers like Williams trying to get $9.00 per 40lb bag (good god, oil has to be cheaper that that )

I have now bought nearly 30 ton of rice from Gale,this time they filled 2 super sacks with nut & then finished the rest of the truck with rice for my EFM boiler. Tonite my neighbor came over with his big John Deere backhoe & unloaded the 2 super sacks. I have never burnt nut from Gale b4,i am anxious to try it,but not sure when i will lite my 404. I have been thinking about this all summer as to how i can fit stove tending into my schedule,especially in the am when i seem to always run short on time to get things done b4 8 am when i open my shop. When my wife was still living,she could watch the shop for me to do the stove if needed during business hrs. When outside temps drop into the 30's i will certainly need the 404 firing to keep the concrete slabbed living room comfortable. The 2 super sacks total weight @ 4800# + about 1,000# of coal in buckets from last season yet. I will have more than enough to get thru even a brutal winter as it is unlikely i will run this stove quite as hard as i did when my wife was alive & often used this stove for cooking & other food preparation .

Gale Mining Company of Ginther,Pa.owned & operated by forum member fifthg ,a fifth generation family member who runs the business.I have burned 15+ tons of Gale rice & have been very pleased with it,so i thought i would try their nut coal too.Very happy with everything about their nut coal too.
