    I warn you this is not for the weak. Even i get nauseous. So much so i decided to share some with forum member Corkman,It was a pleasure meeting him so i am not the ultimate pig :). and thanks to my daughter for suggesting pics at the end. the thought didnt even enter my mind at the time.The 10 ton near the house are in the basement the rest of the load are in the tent. the pic of the stash in the basement dont really look like 10 ton but my back says different :) And i think corkman wanted to roll around in it :p think i can fit another 3 ton to complete that block

    I gotta ask....Are you a sort of freelance hobby on the side dealer or full fledged alpha swine?

    Jaw dropping personal stash if that's the case.

    Holy heat OMV!! Talk about taking Pellet Pig Status to a whole new level! Did you get all 10 tons from Lowes?? Which Lowes? I need to take a road trip down there! Geez. And while I'm at it, I need to get one of those big tents for extra storage and probably a new house with a bigger basement! I have so much envy right now I don't even know where to start!

    Start of my 2nd year with 40+ ton on the ground it is a sickness
    but im done now i am going to sell off some of the stash because i am giving up on the outside storage
    Will put as much as i can in the basement and what i will use this season will stay in the garage

    you all need to take that road trip.pellets as far as the eye can see and what a variety.he has the ultimate set up.a huge lot,all the equipment to handle big loads like this,ample storage right now but hes about to start bursting at the seams and a kick ass stove to boot.his house was at 74 on the 1st floor and upstairs at 70 without using fans and burning maine woods.
    my wife and daughter are in Haiti right now on a mission trip with our church.when she left 7 days ago she made a comment about the amount of pellets in the basement(6 ton )and said thats it ,no more pellets in the basement.she gets back on sat and i know i am gonna hear it.so being the good listener that i am,i have 2 more ton of somersets stacked in the driveway and not in the basement.
    so since im gonna catch an ear full anyways,i should revisit OMV and grab 2 more right?right?
    OMV,thanks again for hookin me up and it was a pleasure shootin the breeze with you and your wife,(and yes ,she is as cool as he claims)Peace ,Corkman

    OMV sounds like a Stand up individual.

    Congratulations on the load.... And what a good deed you did.

    Oh and Corkman, I will buy the VF-55, but you must deliver! ;)

    Glad that 2 people have a good outcome.

    I graciously and respectfully agree,............... hoarding all those sets,... leaving the rest of us here with nervous twitches and anxiety,...insomnia ,.. sleep apnia,...drinking problems,... E.D.>,.... wondering will there be enough Sets left,.. will I make it through the coming winters,... will the price climb to ridiculous prices,.. causing all of us to sell our stoves,..... look what you've done OMV...:(,.... and on your b-day no less,.....:(


    have to say though,.. that is SOME b-day present ;)

    Wow! Nice stash! I was all proud of myself when I scored two tons. Now it seems measly in comparison. I gotta step up my game.

    Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts that produce uneasiness, apprehension, fear, or worry, by repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing the associated anxiety, or by a combination of such obsessions and compulsions. Symptoms of the disorder include excessive washing or cleaning; repeated checking; extreme hoarding; preoccupation with sexual, violent or religious thoughts; relationship-related obsessions; aversion to particular numbers; and nervous rituals, such as opening and closing a door a certain number of times before entering or leaving a room. These symptoms can be alienating and time-consuming, and often cause severe emotional and financial distress. The acts of those who have OCD may appear paranoid and potentially psychotic. However, OCD sufferers generally recognize their obsessions and compulsions as irrational, and may become further distressed by this realization
