    UPDATE!!!
    I went to get my Oxygen tank filled at a local welding shop this week. When I picked the tank up. I mentioned LN and asked if his supplier would bring it out and deliver If I have a Dewar waiting for him. As it turn out the LN delivery truck comes to our little town once a week. Best part is, they will deliver and the welding shop is just a few blocks from my home so transport shouldn't be a problem!!!

    Up until today I was under the impression that the closest place for a fill up was a 40 minute drive one way. What a Blessing and even if the cost is a little higher then the other place. With gas at 4.00 a gallon and time being one of the few things I cant make. Ill gladly pay a buck or 2 more a liter for the convenience!!

    Heck if I wanted to I may be able to even cut out the local welding shop and deal direct with the supplier. But I wont... There great guys , good old boys! Every time I drop in to buy something I spend at least a hour chatting with them and hanging around. Its like stepping back 20 years when you walk through the door, Its a cool place. Shops like this are all but extinct in this day and age.

    Im still super excited and just wanted to share!
