    Hey Zoo.
    I saw this add on craigslist and immediately thought of you. It might seem like a big chunk of change up front but there is a lot of gear here. Sell what you don't want and keep the rest. A bit of a road trip but I would meet you there and help you load it.
    At the rate you're going you are going to soon need a set up like this. :wink:

    another 20 deep frames of honey to harvest, theres more but the robbers are nuts right now so I closed up the hives and took off, even opening 1 at a time and covering everything with towels as I go the robber hoards just got to be too overwhelming, Ill give the total weight when I extract tonight.
