    Hi all,
    I will be shipping an E. Howard Number 2 clock from Belmont, MA to Orbisonia, PA (about 450 miles) in the next month and was wondering if anyone had a suggestion for a blanket wrap mover. I had used Don Hill out of Pittsburgh, PA several years ago. Not sure if he's still doing east coast runs. Doesn't hurt to have other sources
    Thanks
    Russ

    I'd ask the new owner to come get it. It's not all that far, and he would be much more careful than any commercial mover.

    I'm with Bugs.

    Why ask for posible stupendous problems, just to avoid a two day drive ... Only a 5 hour drive, if you 'meet in th middle' about noon. Both parties should be back home about sundown. :)

    I know where Orbisonia is. It is in rural Southern Huntington County. I used to live nearby in northern Franklin County. Once you get past State College, or Lewisburg, PA there are two lane state highways.

    I usually figure a general average of
    50 MPH but on interstates 60 is doable. Both can be hard to maintain sometimes. Willie
