401 to450 miles out is beginning to look like "no mans land". :roll:

This is assuming of course that you already own the tractor to pull it with. Fuel and other expenses added in. You can get it shipped for far less of an investment, I would think.

Over at the Gilberton I see them loading those huge Tote Bags on trailers all the time. You guys ever hear of uship.com I'd put it out for a bid.

Well, the ocean explains 1/3 of the reason why no one within 401 to 450 miles from ground zero burns anthracite.

No ocean going ships burning anthracite anymore? Could be ballast, until it wasn't. ;)
