Yes! I should have taken a picture.
Keg is in good shape. One new O-ring and some lube and it was good to go.

well I have the UPS bill from all but 5 shipments it looks like the Over/Under is spot on. where I was billed $16 for two kegs I was billed $7 for 2 else where. so its going to balance out.

happy kegging.

Jason, Why dont you tally total out of pocket including your gas for the two round trips. If you are out of pocket we could chip in. Just a thought.

Gunner65 I figured I'd have to drive down there for my own kegs so its really no big deal. with the few extra donations I have been Gifted I am no longer in the red.

here is just what was involved in getting the kegs.
mileage = 436 miles round trip at .50 a mile (what my work pay for personal vehicle use) = $218
Gas = $120
time $25 an hour 8 hours = $200

so did I make money? Not really I am just glad I was able to bring HBT a good deal on kegs. I don't want anyone to feel like they need to pay anything extra as thats not needed.

This has gotta be worth a million karma points!
I hope that your next keg never runs out.
Cheers

I wish I could have been a part of this deal, it went down and was over right before I bought my kegs.

To take such a big risk on the personal cost, plus the time (436 miles of driving??? holy crap) you are like the Ghandi of HBT, I know I am not anywhere near nice enough to do this.

I believe it's 22,000 karma points, but that gets him one free round trip anywhere in the lower 48 and priotity boarding for the year.
