    Because it's a conspiracy amongst the privy few who hold mining rights.

    Looks like they have some political muscle too because they are stickin it to the counties and munis also.

    Im not for big government but I really think this needs looked into.

    Seems like a Monopoly to me.

    Tom how much do you need? I sell it during the storm by the ton in KCK. I should have about 500 tons on hand when the winter starts.

    In Kansas City you might try Rock City off of Blue Ridge. We ordered some but we pre-paid for it though.

    Looking to Canada won't work

    I am in Canada, I have talked at length to our mines. They haven't supplied all their depots, they have none to send out to fill all their orders. This message was what I got from one supplier.

    Hi Craig,

    We are still waiting for a reply on several of our suppliers then we can can finalize our price for the upcoming season. All I can say is expect an increase due to price of fuel and rationed supply.

    I will have more information for you by the end of the month.

    Thank You!!


    Salt RATIONING? Not looking forward to that at all.

    The lady from one of our mines explained that they have no way of filling all of the need this winter regardless of how much they move. They are already running at 24/7 since last winter and are still behind even though it is september.

    What are our options? I guess cutting our sand down to very little salt. Anyone know if 20:1 or less works at all?
