    I've see that before also OMV...Never could figure out what they were doing other than spending lots of cash on fuel!

    What they were doing is bringing a few pallets back from deliveries that they just made. I have a truck driver that brings Hamer pellets in to me and he has a pallet-refurbishing business that he does out of his house. When he comes here, he gives me $1 for all of my pallets. Most of them are good and re-usable, and others need some refurbishing. He will take them all, fix the crappy ones and then sell them all back to Hamer for probably $3 or $4 each. He grabs a hundred or so pallets each time he is here and it is his Christmas money for his kid's presents. I even give him November's and Decembers for free because he will sometimes unload his truck for me.
    Believe me, this is very common. Nobody will pay a trucker to roll his truck to deliver 100 pallets as original freigh, but many truckers pick up pallets as an afterthought.t.

    According to some "believers", those still are not horrible odds.

    True, I am in the boonies with plenty of water and woods around. Technically it's a pretty 'squatchy' area.

    I still have a ton stashed from Lowes in apr 2010, saving them for the cold jan, it's a shame they wont sell them in Ct, but will sell them in SE Mass/Cape Cod, stupid they will ship around Ct!!, It must have something to do with the A-hole Lowes management

    Its mighty cold and windy tonight. The Breckwell is really loving the Sommersets. Great pellets. House is ranging from 80 to 75 degrees close and far rooms.

    Easy Blazes are great. I've burned about 10 bags of them. They are my new favorite pellet. And yes, i've burned oakies, cubex, and all the rest... except somersets.
