I recently bought items from several folks on e-bay. Three vendors that stick out for price, helpfulness, cost of and combining shipping and communication were: duck83311, stone clouds, cole5774 (The Wyoming Rock Shop), opalite_one (Oregon Rockshop) and 917jfs. 917jfs stood out in particular. He sends me a message a day or two after completing the transaction saying that he was taking a couple of dollars off the price because he found a crack that wasn't visible or listed in the description. All of these folks were really friendly and helpful. They had great rough and slabs too!
These darn rocks will be my eventual undoing. My wife says I'm obsessed.

wampidy: pickup before I go running around in the hills. One of my goodest tires has a bulge and all the tread is worn off of it in that spot. Tells me that I probably should have replaced it a long time ago but it is just a little wup wup.

snowmom: LOL, I did ask.. I'll be more careful next time! I expect hounding out there is a terror on tires- all those sharp rocks...
