I've had 18 wheeler deliveries to my house, also in Stafford, VA. As long as there is a cross street after your house, the truck should have no problem turning around. Did you get Lift Gate delivery? If so, then the truck driver is responsible for getting it off the truck and usually into the garage unless there are any "obstacles". If you didn't get Lift Gate, they you will need to unload the truck, and the driver is not obligated to assist you.

Looking forward to seeing some photos of the haul, can't say the same about the wife (as she clutches the check book closer to her...)

LOL.. I have gate lift delivery but Southern Frieght said all they are responsible for is getting the merchandise off the truck. The driver has a hand pallet jack and I will be providing a few pizza's for the local High School boys to help push it up the driveway hill into the garage. PM me Draken or I'll PM you with my ph#, we live less than a mile from one another and should try & get together.

Cheers

This statement was issued this AM.
Just another curve ball to add to the challenge!!!

WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN STERLING VIRGINIA HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM WATCH...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING.

LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPING ACROSS THE TENNESSEE VALLEY ON TUESDAY WILL TRACK NORTH INTO THE GREAT LAKES TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY. THIS LOW WILL HELP TO TRANSPORT A SURGE OF MOISTURE INTO THE MID ATLANTIC. WITH COLD AIR TRAPPED CLOSE TO THE SURFACE...WINTRY PRECIPITATION IN THE FORM OF SLEET AND FREEZING RAIN IS EXPECTED.

WHILE THE EXACT MAGNITUDE OF THE COLD AIR REMAINS SOMEWHAT UNCERTAIN AT THIS TIME...THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF SLEET AND...OR FREEZING RAIN. THIS INCLUDES THE POSSIBILITY OF A QUARTER INCH OR MORE OF ICE ACROSS THE WATCH AREA. PREPARATIONS SHOULD BE MADE NOW FOR A POTENTIALLY HIGH IMPACT WINTER WEATHER EVENT TUESDAY THROUGH EARLY WEDNESDAY.

It could make it easier to move up the hill if we had a large sled and metal spike shoes LOL.

I think this kind of goes without saying, but you're going to carry the burls one at a time, right? No matter how many teens you can get to help, I would never try to move a load that large at one time up a hill without some serious equipment. Maybe rent a Bobcat or outdoor forklift?

Turn it to your advantage-throw on some golf shoes and slide those burls!

I'll be watching for your ad. Most interested in bowl blanks or whole burls suitable for turning. Anything except the ancient Karri burl, which is murder to turn - looks good when you are done though.

WhooHoo!

Houston..... The Burl has landed!!!

This shipment will take me a week or so to sort through and four to five months to cut the entire shipment. I'll be posting blanks, & end caps on the individual classified soonest. Just curious, does anyone need thin strips? I use them for segmenting. How about small burl end caps?
