    Good afternoon Pellet Pig Club Membership committee. I would like to humbly apply for membership into the hallowed ranks.

    I had 77 bags pellets in storage and two ton pellets on order by early Sept. The ton+ on hand was obtained in several trips of 8 to 15 bags at a time in my 2001 RAV with 134,000 + miles; 8 or 12 bags in the back with 3 bags in the passenger seat. Carried one bag at a time through the house to the basement.

    The 2 ton was delivered 10/1. Both ton are now inside and stacked. I thought I could use the sled shown in the photo, but it wouldn't move easily even with only 1 bag loaded! So I carried one bag at a time to the end of the house until 5 bags were sitting on the sled by the basement window. The 5 bags were then placed on the slide into the basement. They were then stacked. Repeat 20 times until the 2 ton is all in. Attached are pics of the process and result for your consideration.

    Very nice Melissa! You have my vote. Once the others chime in, I'll grant you your oinks! ::-)

    Ibuprofen helps, But beer seems to ease the back,knee,hip and shoulder pain better for me. I start before I even get hauling. Every haul grants a few sips(really a guzzle) reward. Wife keeps em lined up and I keep a hauling. Heck after a few trips(literally hick-hick!) I only need to worry about the morning hang-over. Ibuprofen works great for that(with a few of what bit me in the first place;) ). ==c ==c ::-)

    I'll second... both the application and the pain relief methodology!

    I would like to also apply for membership into the hallowed ranks of the Pellet Pig Club.

    Purchased 4 tons of Cubex in August from a local distributor in Pelham NH. Backed my trailer into the garage and unloaded 2 tons at a time into the basement with my wonderful wife in the 90 degree weather. Also have roughly 10/15 bags of Geneva's. Installed the stove and made the hearth myself. Still need to finish the hearth though but I have all winter for that. :)

    You got my vote....... :) Nice 5.0.... What year? 89. Fox Bodies were the best Mustang made. IMO.

    The sound of a 5.0 (pushrod) motor sounds so much better!!!

    Well you mean a meeting was kept under control long enough to elect some new members and to think no slurps or burps were heard on the interweby thing.

    Welcome fellow pigs, imacman will be along shortly to lighten your wallets to help with the administrative costs. Pellet pigs have been known to really chow down at the slopping of the hogs (err, I mean business meetings).
