    O.K. Here's the thing guys, on another forum I belong to guys help each other send parts across the country to each other by driving them a certain distance until another member picks it up (this can help save money on shipping large items. I mean we have to stick together don't we?)

    I propose we start doing this, and I will offer my services. I am located in Windsor, Ontario Canada (right across the border from Detroit Michigan, so I can help in fascilitating border crossing). What do you say guys?

    The only thing I would ask is if I have to pay duty at the border crossing, that the buyer cover it. Maybe we could start a new division of the site of Brothers that help brothers out?

    Yours in everlasting exhaust,
    Ryan!!!!!!!!!!!

    There is always people driving up your way from Newfieland so it wouldn't be hard to send that way. Dam Rock, why do I live here again? But if I could ever help just let me know. That goes for anyone out there. I might have to drool on some of the rigs but that is ok. :D

    People post all of the time when they are travelling and ask if anyone has anything to haul from one place to another. Keep your eye open and you will notice that.

    That said, are you talking about a "pony express" set up? No knock, but if I'm not headed somewhere already, at $3/gallon, with a full time job and 3 kids its rather unrealistic.

    Totally agree - most of us drive gas hogs, cant really afford special long distance trips. If we are gonna go a couple hundred or thousand miles anyway might as well haul some parts. As a bonus we would get to meet members that we might not ever get an opportunity to otherwise! :grin:

    i am in the same boat, if i am going some ware ill haul what ever, but if not i would need gas money, it seems to be the standered way it gets done.

    that being said, i do go down to detroit every once and a while, and the members there know i do so i would haul parts if needed, but since there is only one other member in my aera, i doute it would ever be needed, if i even wanted to help him out.
