That's only the declared fence-sitters. Trust me...there are more of us.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Excellent price point for folks! I'm one. I better pick a side before I get a splinter somewhere that I'll have to ask for Mrs. Joegoat's help with the removal.

Don't forget folks that you can throw in an extra $5, $10, whatever amount, and fill up a bucket to sponsor some fine folks that can't afford their own (or buy one outright for somebody if you like). Right now we have $20 in the sponsorship pool.

Also, 2 pipes have already been purchased for others here :)

They told me in the 4th grade (circa 1976) that the metric system was coming. I thought they were bluffing. Now 42 years later, ugh.

Hey fence sitters, get off the dang fence!

Also, if you're up for throwing in an extra few bucks to help out others who can't afford, let me know.

ReverendThom,

The first nor'easter of the past few weeks fried my computer when it took out my power. I am finally up and running with a new computer. Thank the Lord that my hard drive was not damaged!

My 2018 POY order was placed today.

Please let me know if my payment did not reach you.

Got it, sir!

Ladies & gents, just an FYI: we are now up to 14 pipes. That includes 3 pipes completely sponsored, and another $40 sitting in the "bucket" for those that cannot afford one. :taco:

I did not have time to call the shop today about dimensions. We got hammered with a snow storm, and I've been at work since 3:45 a.m.
