About a mile past Superior there is a place that has a damn good breakfast. I'm only 5-10 minutes away, let me know if your going to be out for sure and I can probably meet you.

I almost went last week. But the bin was just little over 50% so not enough room to store it. And it rained and rained. Tomorrow I have room to stock about one ton plus 1/4 ton more in tubs.
Besides, I want to burn the hotter Super. coal as we dig deeper into winter. The stuff I use now is good but not great. It tends to burn down quickly when I crank up the heat.
I'm only getting my usual load of about 2500lbs.

He Cap, have a safe trip. Are you getting stove or nut? I know you like to burn stove in that monster when it gets cold.

Terry, I am postponing my trip till next w/e due to unexpected emergency. I hurt myself! :poke: I probably shouldn't drive with one eye and the other very irritated. :bag: But I plan on buying nut mainly cause it is much easier to handle and shovel. I have some large pieces still left from last Aug. I throw some in when it gets really cold like this w/e.

At our Oct. meet and greet, Cap parked on a vacant lot on a rainy Saturday while we had lunch at a pizza place in Pottsville. After lunch, cap and a couple of others found parking tickets on the vehicles. I guess there isn't much crime in Pottsville and the local boys have to do something. :roll:
