(OT-sorta) SHIPPING - Your Onto Something here....Re: pole xmfrs delivery

Original poster: "Jack King" <ekklekktikk@xxxxxxxxxxx>

Often times, a potential transaction (like say the aquisition of a massive power transformers) are prohibitive simply due to the high cost associated with freight...

I have often thought how great it would be to find a few "angels" like your antiques dealer - or say a nice retired couple with a massive RV and trailer to schlep stuff from point a to b, and for a sensible price...anyone with room in a truck or wagon basically , to haul some stuff for a reasonable fee. ANytime I head out in the pickup to retrieve toys, I try to go loaded both directions and do someone a favor..It would be great to have a forum to network such things.

What I'm driving at here is the possible e-creation of a "ride share" type forum program .... it would make things so much more accessible to a broader audience and avoid $1000 shipping bills for a $300 power supply)...Anyone interested in exploring this further??? Maybe a good idea too - heck, look at that crazy lady from San Jose that created an e-forum to sell PEZ dispensers and what it's grown into (that little business call Ebay)...

Cheers all,

If it's enroute to Shreveport she could do it, or else you may need to drive a bit west. Not sure of the southern route from Chicago.

I assume that you will still have some pigs
available at the Cheesehead Teslathon? Also, how
close would this antique lady be willing to make
a delivery/stop to Memphis, TN?
