Thanks Huntsman, you get the picture. while driving on back roads and hit a bump, it hurts. Sometimes puts me down for a few days. Yes, the Dr's would crap if they new what I do. We are friendly with my family Dr. We stopped by their house one day in the spring and I showed her husband how to prune apple trees. She came running out, \"that's enough boys\"! She knows I own an orchard, but just tells me to take it easy. BTW, I've seen several Dr's and they all say they don't fix ribs...no pins or screws.
I did have a pneumothorax when I fell from one of the broken ends of the ribs piercing one of the lungs. I couldn't breathe good and ended up with pneumonia too. It was awful. Ya one fall and I'm going to do it again!
I did get out today to bury some berries in a place I have dug the last couple years. I didn't expect to dig but got 6 that were all over 20 yo. Just nice to get out!
yeah, this is a dealer that's been in the business for 35 + years and always dealt with people fairly. I seem to have taken this dealer by surprise when I called. They didn't seem set up to take sang yet. They said if you want the kind of prices I quoted you better dry it and wait for a while....
I've dealt with 5 different dealers all over western Pennsylvania in the last 7-8 years, and I've found that none of them ever pay even close to what the prices on these boards mention. The best I ever found was 2 years ago for $450 a pound dried, while these forums were talking about $700 - $800 - $900 dried. It seems western PA is in a slump for ginseng prices.
