have you contacted stone transport. they may be running back empty from there. they are all over the place.

also i know warrick has trucks sitting idle at the moment.

personal friends company may be interested in doing it. smaller company but has 10 trains they may wanna put one to work.

do you need lead and pup or just lead? ill talk to him or give you his number if hes interested.

Scott, if you're looking to sell any of that to help cover the cost of the tow I'd be very interested in buying some. Or if there's somewhere I could pick up a bunch down in Dexter I could swing down with my truck and trailer. I need to start stocking up for next winter.

Well like I said, I'll throw in for it if I can get a decent amount of wood. Preferably hardwood, but beggers can't be choosers

I have 2 partial 2x4's and a couple odd pieces of MDF in my garage if you are interested.

I was going to make a joke about kindling near Dexter...but I kinda figured that would be in poor taste.

Broken down is such a harsh term, more like driveshaft impaired.
