Hey folks,

this is the follow up to:

http://www.atlantareefclub.org/forums/showthread.php?t=27722

I am planning of picking this beast up on the 19th (sunday) - somewhen during the day, my 'hatchback' (insider) is far from capable of loading this. Let alone stand and canopy together with it.

So, I am asking my fellow ARC'ers for some muscles and a truck ride - I'll have plenty of beer and pizza to "compensate" - and of course the gas for the truck.

The tank is located in Buford and I need it hauled to Powder Springs.

Many people offered help already in the other thread - but to make it easier I started this one.

Anyone on the way from Powder Springs to Buford can get picked up and brought back home.

Let me know please - I need to let the seller know if I can hold that date by this sunday.

Thanks to all,

appreciate the help!

Robin

Isn't that the same day as Tim's Frag workshop? I'll check and see, otherwise I'll be available after 1pm......

Yep, same day.......

I've already RSVP'ed to Tim, so I wont be available. My apologies Rob.

(Since the back surgery, I'm not nearly the work-horse I used to be anyway)

Plans are for sunday at 2pm in Buford and a haul with a rented cargo van and Dellomans van to bring everything to Powder Springs where beer and pizza will be waiting.

We can never habe enough help - the more the merrier.

Hey Robb, don't forget that I have a truck and if anyone on this side of town wants to meet at my house around 1:30 (I'm 8 minutes from Buford), I have room for 3 more people in my truck (we need more people:yes:).

OK to leave @ 12:00? That will put us there a little before 12:30 so we can mooch lunch off of Robb. :)

LilRobb
04-16-2009, 7:10 PM
Tracy,

thanks a lot, I am heading to the rental place to check out their vans tomorrow.
The low loading height could be beneficial.
I will let you know tomorrow!

Thanks to all.

LilRobb

Thanks for the offer,

but the time is somewhat given by the current owner.
I can PM you my # and if it is somewhat in time that you get off, just buzz me.

I can help on the Buford end. Do you happen to have any suction cups? Could be a great tool to have.

LilRobb
04-16-2009, 9:22 PM
I think either JT955 or Christoperjay had some, and on saturday I am spending FishScales a visit, soliciting to borrow his.
Maybe if someone has belts that we can put underneath?
I'll def bring my towing belt - but a second one wouldn't hurt.

I'll be posting adresses tomorrow - thanks for helping, Glenn!

I've already got that covered, Robb.

How 'bout the shipping blanket? Can't hurt to have it with us in case.

Robb, how's the personnel count? Do we need a second vehicle to drive to the tank? I don't mind (but can only carry me + 1).

LilRobb
04-18-2009, 7:59 PM
We have Delloman and Tracy, means a VAN and a 6ft truck - we should be all set.

BTW; that rock is HUGE - didn't fit in any of my buckets...

So I'm gonna be planning a trip to Marietta I guess! I'll take a big cooler. Looks like new rockscape time I guess; no way I can put that on top if it's that big!

LilRobb
04-18-2009, 10:24 PM
Huh?

No no,

I got it - but it didn't fit in the regular bucket.
Get it tomorrow and a timer strip if you still want it - I have two now.
