    I periodically drive to Parkersburg, WV from Ashland, KY. I can get it that far north if it makes to me.

    @chiefcrunchy hey Brother, I thought of you when I saw this request.

    Maybe @fatfurious2 and @pdenajim would get involved and then I could get them north up into Delaware or Pennsylvania.

    If I can get them moved out of Tennessee a few hours north, that cuts a 19 hour drive one way down some.

    He is going to be up by Knoxville Memorial Day weekend.

    Another option is to watch the Fastenal website. They provide the cheapest shipping cost around. They ship from warehouse to warehouse. They are everywhere though.

    However, the last time I checked (a week or so ago) they had suspended that service. With things lightening up it might have changed.

    Then, this is a wacky idea, Greyhound. You buy a round trip ticket and disguise the skids as luggage. Seriously though. I think that Greyhound ships though.

    So far..
    @toycoma 2016 takes the skids up to WindRock Park Memorial Day Weekend and connects with @Aardvark13 who is in the Knoxville Area.
    if they were shipping, this would work great. Seller would drop off in Nashville and I have a location within 30 minutes. But no dam covid 19 virus crap.

    Well, that ban can't last forever, especially since things are loosening up. I bet there is a Fastenal center near the seller. Hell, I'm in east BF Egypt and there are 2 near me.

    the seller is just south of Nashville and there is one there. Memorial day the seller is going to be up by Knoxville and I have found another TW member who will at least hold them there, that puts them 3 hours closer. If I can get them a couple hours more eat of North, then I believe there are a few other members who will help.

I was going to head south to FL, but plans changed when I couldn't get temp tags in TN. Good luck getting your skids and I hope I can help in the future.
