And the search goes on. I just got off the phone with David, one of the owners of Alaska Feed. He can get blacksmiths coal from Mountain Brook Forge in Oregon. But the cost is rather prohibitive at $56.50 per 50# bag. Another detail is. he needs payment in Advance. So that works out to: $ 2260. I just can't afford to pay that much in advance for coal. We would need to collect the money from the various people in the interior who want it and then make payment. Wait until the coal arrives then divide it up. I don't know that sounds like a lot of work for little gain. As I was talking to David he went over his coal sails and was telling me how little he sold. It worked out to about a bag a month. Which for him doesn't make it worth it. I can certainly understand. That's why he wants all the money in advance. I wouldn't want a ton of coal sitting around in inventory just taking up space either. I have a call into the Usibelli coal mine office here in Fairbanks and left a message with their purchasing person and am waiting for a call back on that. I'll keep plugging away.
