    Worked a deal to buy a Wardy surfboard from the seller in Rye, New Hamshire, almost a clone of my first custom back in 64'. Keith alerted me to the board, and he and TLri have offered to help (stoked!) on local pick-up arrangements.

    So looking for suggestions on getting it to Oregon.

    Amtrak, preferred shipping company?

    Amtrak will be the most reasonable. Air freight has been rising the last few years and is not even close to cheap.

    Amtrak. I'm about to do the same to a board I just sold.

    Tim (TLri) is picking the board up Wednesday from the seller. Sounds like Amtrak the way to go. Closest station is only an hour away.

    I got a fine looking piece of surfcraft from Jammer "Strez," via Amtrak coast to coast and it could not have been simpler. Of course, Strez is a stand up kind of guy and packed the board beautifully and made sure all was easy peasy....HUGE shout out to Strez!
