I am in South GA and am considering something similar.. it isn't out of the question to drive to pick it up in ATL if the price is right. Or possibly put together another group buy for our area soon?

What's your best guess for how many sacks you/ those with you want?

1234, can you confirm the pickup point is Nashville?

I have a 1/2-ton PU that can safely handle 25 sacks from a weight and volume perspective. The economics are tough since my truck gets ~12MPG, which adds about $6/sack if I have to go to Nashville. The cost of using my truck to go get this load (~$150 ~ $3.65/G) is slightly less than what it would cost to have NCM ship a pallet directly to ATL ($200/Pallet with the fuel surcharge). Does someone else have a cheaper way vehicle?

For the effort involved in picking up the stuff from Nashville, I'd rather pay $1.50/sack extra and have it shipped directly to ATL if someone has the right connections for a supplier & loading dock and is willing to do the work.

Regardless of the solution, I will take 3 sacks of base malt plus I'd like to get in on some specialty grains and possibly some other stuff.

The Pallet we have coming will be dropped in the Nashville area. If I had a way of making it easier on you guys I would. It is up to you guys if you want to get in with us, I am just trying to help you guys out. I also probably have one or two people who could probably help fill your pallet, if you guys had a problem filling it.

The gas charge to drive to/fro Nashville would be in addition to the freight charge. The pallet charge from NCM is $165. (Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.)

So if we got in on the TN buy, and the TN folks finished filling a pallet, the per sack freight charge would be about $4 per sack. Additionally we would need to split the cost to drive up.

To my thinking the math doesn't work to add a drive to TN. It's about the same cost to split a pallet shipped to our area.

But thanks to the TN folks for the offer.

Hmm- assuming 42 sacks- that's about $2.15 per.

So far we're only looking at 11-15 sacks.
A small truck with good gas mileage could carry this- which would bring the numbers down.

Does anyone have a small truck that could make the trip?
The rest of us would chip in on gas.

You guys could probably get 2-4 sacks out of some speciality grain splits. We might be able to help fill some of them as well. We had a couple of guys who wanted some splits that just didn't make the pallet.

I wouldn't mind splitting a bag of pilsner, Munich, Vienna and maybe dextrose.
