First trip to the mothership!

So, when I got to work this morning, I discover that a series of unfortunate events in Florida have dictated me driving from Dalton to somewhere south of Perry to deliver some critical network components. Well, I got the materials delivered and I was headed back north around 285 when all of a sudden... my car swerves off the highway onto the Lawrenceville Hwy exit.

Seriously... it was unavoidable.  :-?

Nice folks and they have every eggcessory I have ever heard of and a few I hadn't. Definitely worth the trip if you are in the area! Unfortunatly, they didn't have an XXL out on display. I was hoping to catch a glimpse of it.

    I picked up a small grate to connect to my mini grate and grid extender that should be in tomorrow as well as some Dizzy Pig Pineapple Head and a couple of the stuffed egg dolls for the kids.

    The thing I found the most interesting, but I didn't take a picture of was rig that secured a large egg while in transport. It looked like it would go in the back of a pickup or in a trailer... I need to do some research on that...

    @krobertsmsn - I actually live in Jasper, but I commute to Dalton for work.

    I think if you asked, they would have shown you one. I've seen one in the back before, right at the loading dock.

    Large, medium, small and a mini. Egg'n, golfing, beer drinking, camping and following football and baseball.

    You probably saw the transporter that connects to a hitch receiver on a truck. It is a really interesting concept and thankfully the price has been reduced nearly in half (in the last 2 years)

    @crimsongator, how much is it now?
  • @crimsongator, how much is it now?
    It was an arm and a leg but now its just your leg.
  • I'm glad you went, but to most of us old school eggers, the real mothership will always be over on Buford Highway and Clairmont. May she rest in peace.
  • Does anyone know if they sell the little green spacer feet?  I've been looking for a set for a while with no luck... If anyone has a set they would be willing to sell please let me know! Thanks guys!
  • @crimsongator, how much is it now?

    $800 range
  • Wait a second! That deck with the eggs is right where the beer truck is supposed to be.

  • Not as many eggs as you have either Gino

    beer truck is on the other side now. They are thinking about putting taps sticking out of the building on the right hand side anyway

    I haven't clubbed a seal in years. You only have two eggs under warranty. You have 16 that you bought on the cheap

  • The place that I bought my egg from here in Oklahoma has had one of those chiminea's in the stores for about a year. About a month ago when asked about them they said that they had discontinued those? Anyone have info on that?

  • Let me think. Over the years I have had 2 mini, 3 small, 3 large and 2 XL. Current Residents are 1 small and 1 XL. Plus the Jambo and the Backwoods Patio
