Rusty where are you?  For some reason I was thinking South NY but now I'm thinking NH.  You tell me when you want to meet and I'll tell you how far I can make it.  I'm always down for a trip, but my time is limited at the moment.  Just skated Talent today!  Posted a couple clips I took of my friend in the old mans thread or on insta @mycrappypics

honestly i was picturing them all to be like the spoken for ones. those shorter ones look like what we get from the granite dumpster. i've got a gang of 3-4 foot chunks already.

Damn!  I haven't been on the mountain in the past 3 years I think now.  Tempted a little.  That place looked cool the few times I drove by it.  Just not sure how my back will handle snowboarding.  But if you want to do Montpelier any weekend day, I could swing it.  Weekdays would be tough but maybe.  And pretty much you're getting it free since I'm coming from Plattsburgh and have to pay $20 for the ferry ;)  It's cool though.  Just let me know when.  I'll even bring you a Heady Topper if you drink

I know man, I wish there were more.  1 of the long ones has a crack that we have to work with, so I wouldn't want to sell that to someone and there is no way my friends would let me get rid of the good one, so I also grabbed those other two because they were in pretty good shape and a decent size for a small ledge.  I also wanted something that both sides were able to be ground and a lot of them only had one good side.  There are 2 amazing pieces still there, but just too big for anything I have to move them.  They're about 1-2' longer and almost twice as wide as the long pieces in the pic.  I just had no way to take them, then the larger two here would of been up for grabs but like I said one of those isn't even perfect.

Side note ... They do have a bunch of about 4" wide strips that are really long ( 10-12' probably ).  so you could build a ledge capped with concrete and just edge it with the granite.  We're still contemplating that in addition to this stuff.

Nah, never heard of it.  I just did a search for it and if I'm looking at the right one that little mini looks fun.  If you're down for a trip and it looks over mid 30's come up to Plattsburgh one weekend day.  We can hit the ramp in the garage and grab something to eat.  Also the granite is just going to sit in my friends garage so there is no hurry either.  It will be there.

Yeah it's called "The Factory"? It's not 2 far from Saint J. I suck at skating mini ramps but they got some stairs/loading dock and a buncha other stuff I don't mind.

yeah, the big pieces sound like a dream but w/ what we can scrounge here or maybe a small investment we can prolly do a long 'flatbar-esque' strip of granite on top of something. or maybe a little thicker, cinderblock wide. i've got a bunch of vaguely mismatched chunks and we can prolly raid as needed. your ideas sound awesome, hope they come out great.
