    Yes, until I get a price, the closed buy thread will be updated in the first post.

    And just some words of warning for all involved. The veterans are aware of this but there are alot of newcomers to this...

    This wont happen quickly. Once I get a price up and start taking money, that may take 3-7 days just to get all the monies in. It may take another week to get the order.. Afterall, we are talking about 40,000'. It may take longer.... I dont know.

    Then once I get the line, it may take another week to get it all sorted and shipped out.

    There is a bright spot... We may have gotten enough to get it shipped to me for free. But Im still waiting to hear.

    for not having to do anything but sit on my butt and push a few buttons, that doesn't seem unreasonable at all, especially for the GREAT savings i am getting, and then take into account the guy doing it, isn't in it for profit, don't know how anybody could even possibly complain about the time frame

    I was not in any hurry for my order, and a month is very reasonable. I would be happy no matter how long it took. This is my first group buy participation, and it will not be my last. If I lived close to Opie, I would volunteer some time to help process the rope.
