Title: My first 18, hopefully
Post by: Grillagin on January 12, 2018, 05:03:12 PM
Hey all.  I found this older 18 on CL, and have been playing text tag with the seller about getting it shipped to me.  I'd like it to be another color, but whatever. I have been looking for an 18" cooker for a while, and this one should clean up fine.  Some Zav handles will be next, should this deal go through.

Good luck! As a CSU alum I will say that is an epic CL write up!

That’s a gorgeous blue 18”. Good luck man. They don’t pop up every day.

Pretty sure that is black, but nab it anyway. Nine bucks? I've spent that much on coffee in a day.

18's are great cookers, hope you get it.

Shes got a really cool Speckled/Weathered/Salt & Pepper look to her.

When you pick her up please add her to the Rescue Mission thread.

Ha! I emailed that guy earlier in the week just to tell him that, although my wife would kill me if I bought another kettle, I LOVED his CL add. @Normal_J_Bird It’s good to know there’s another CSU alum here. Fight on, you stalwart Ram! @Grillagin If you need any help securing or shipping it just let me know. I live about 20 min. away from Loveland.

Thanks, Jed.  I wish everyone was as easy to deal with as you.  He has my offer, but I'm still waiting to hear back.  I hope it works out.  I've been wanting a pre-OT 18.  I'll give you a shout if he or I need a hand.

The deal has stalled a bit.  Shipping may be a stumbling block with the seller.  PM sent to Jed for some local assistance.  Much thanks, Jed, if it works out!
