My Trip to the Chubby Factory.. WOO HOO!

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

Larry Trainer from Chubby Stoves invited me down to his shop. So Yesterday I took a ride down to Pembroke, MA for a visit with Larry and got the full tour of the Chubby factory. I needed to wipe the drool off my chin with what I saw. WOW... Is about all I can say.

There are LOTS AND LOTS of things going on down there. Drawings, Molds, Patterns, Dies. Firepots and Grates and yes.... CHUBBY STOVES. Can't say too too much as I have been sworn to double secret probation as to what I saw and heard. I couldn't take any pictures either but things are a happening at "Plimoth Stove Works".

A BIG THANK YOU to LARRY for showing me around! :D

Careful, OD! Secrets are just that...don't throw anyone under the bus....Larry deserves your silence. He will come up with something we will all want. I'd love to check it out myself!! Fred is having trouble with the smoke signals today.....and he might as well visit me on the way...only 390 miles on the 8N at 10 mph......guess you should advise FF to bring breakfast, lunch and dinner! We have some GREAT Road-Kill Jerky from the fall hangin' in the outhouse! That alone is worth the trip!!

I asked Larry if I could post about my visit and what I could post as well. I consider Larry to be a great friend and would not reveal anything without his explicit ok and approval.

I was going to make a joke of it, but after this mess with General Dave and friends, I don't trust anyone.(Like I ever did!) Greed, power, jealousy......and pleasures of the flesh.

I'll say no more.....but what the heck....Like I say: You can't make this crap up.....this is sad.

Is the' Golden Banana' still with us? That changes the subject, doesn't it?

Larry is a class act, and I would love to go see him, also. I have a Jr and the big chubby.....and all my coal comes from the Mammoth Vein...that is as suggestive as the Generals emails I suppose.

Thanx muchly for all the invites-if I ever save up enough gas money, I might just do a sweep although WN's really got my attention w/ the road kill & the storage process. Damn pleasures of the flesh--Again I repeat--a whiskey glass & a womans ass, made a horses ass out of me---more then once I might add :clap: toothy :cheers:

I was thinking for fred, well stay outside and feed and water the horses. Can't be too careful in that neighborhood. Hell, they probably remember him by his stage name "Mammoth Vein" the coal boy!!!

I heard it was you, NOW I know it! Didn't they take you to Tufts Veterinary Center to see if you some 'Horse' genes in your bloodstream? You might be the next Lance ShortArmStrong!
