    Not sure I agree with the cash and carry qualifier unless the carrier is capable of handling the qualifying amount in one trip, like say a deuce-and-a-half, after all the whole point of being a pellet pig is to screw the oil companies. That being said I qualify by having a stove and also 6 tons delivered in August that I stored in the basement---by myself in one marathon session that still brings a tear to my eye. My response in the thread that started our wallow in the mire---"6 tons in the basement next to 275 gals of HHO aka diesel. Almost 2 years worth of pellets, probably a decade of HHO going by my last 3 years consumption, or 13,750 miles in the TDI."

    I'm definitely a card carrying member. I burn 2 tons a year and have had 6 tons on hand since April. Anybody have enough stock for more than three years?

    I'd like to be a member and think I can slide in with 3.5 tons in my garage. Picked them all up with my chevy 2500 silverado at the local hardware store. Please pass my membership I plan on stockpiling more in the spring when prices drop, too expensive now for the 1st frost.

    I self-hauled 5 tons in June. I just bought 20 bags from Wal-Mart - and didn't even need them!

    Let me in the club!
