Guys I have some really pretty spalted hackaberry. Almost any size you want. I am cutting it up now. It has some really nice spalting in it. If you want any I will load up the truck with some of it and bring it to a central location. You name the location. Slip I know nothing is central to you so if you want some I will bring it to Beaumont when I come that way. This stuff should make some really nice hollow vessels. Some has gone to far and is soft but the most of it is still solid.

I will go take some pictures of it and post them.

Hey Bobby, I would like to give some of that a try myself. If coming to Beaumont, that would work or I can make a haul your way also when I can make a small road trip. Either way works for me.

Before you make any 'roadie' plans manana, Bobby, you might oughta check the weather forecasts. Just seen one that called for possibly 3.5 foot higher than usual tides Friday...and possible closure of some roads on Bolivar....and, as I recall, there aint but one road on Boliver...Take care.
