Another load of Potatoes!!

this was a scene out of the movie deliverance  as the story goes!

http://www.sunderland.ca/img_0852aa.jpg

-Seen remenants of stone from roadside (Limestone Caprock)

-Thought I would investigate  No Tresspassing signs and large dogs!!!

-Found a phone # - and called

-Found a reasurring voice on the other end  said might sell to you if your worthy

-Arranged visit (wore flak jacket in case)

-Real nice stone, proprioters well okay for now  theyÂr sitting on a landscape gold mine.

-Success they will sell to me because I am a hack (landscape grunt)

-Arrange truck and phone to explain not to shoot I come with $$

-DE-BRIEF the trucker to forget about Quarry wearabouts or he will suffer the my wrath

-truck gets loaded all fine and landed at jobsite

MORAL OF THE STORY

If you want premium stone  eliminate the middleman  kiss up to the red neck quarry owners  arrange your own truck  and last but not least pay 50 % of list

Hey Mitch

Will be using these stones to construct 2 separate staircases+transitions up from the lake, Going to start getting cold up here in the North so I will post some pic's once completed.

PS I ordered that stone sealer you mentioned in an earlier post (ProSoCo)

thanks for the lead

Can't wait to see the pics. We just had 23 Ton of flagstone delivered, arranged our own delivery with the quarry owners and paid 1/2 of cost locally. I spend my mornings digging out sod, need to see your pics so I can get some inspiration to continue projects.

Ian, congratulations on that superior load of potatoes! They are drop-dead gorgeous. We've never met a rock we didn't like. ;-)

Good luck with getting your project done before the snow flies, time grows short up here too. Karen
