I'd love to buy into a wooded acreage with someone.......
yeah im cutting all the dead standing ash before we move.i already trimmed all my apple trees and have that all split and chunked up for smoking wood.theres no trees on the old farm we might move too.theres probably 75 or more ash trees to cut and split.the new gold rush is firewood,last few years it was medical/ recreational marijuana,which is still a strong economy here in Michigan.

I checked my local farm and fleet after reading this thread, the 1lb bottles are $14.99 for a 4 pack. For just one it was $4.29. Pretty sure thatís they price theyíve been for the last few seasons, when not on sale. Lots in stock, seems like we are good in my area. Same with turkeys, I saw someone mention that, Aldiís freezer section is overflowing with them, guessing they just put them out. Price was what itís been for the last few years on those too.

Jeez Doc, I hope folks aren't moving that cut wood out of county up there. If you are, you're contributing to the spread of the ash borer.

These trees have been dead standing  for many years.theres no borers anymore,they kill living trees and move on.every ash tree around here has already been attacked and killed by the ash bore beetle.locals on my street buy it anyways..mostly in a 5 mile radius in a little farm town.thanks for making me look like a ass tho.lol,The ash bore beetle problem is not bad anymore here in Michigan,at least in allegan co. because they ravaged all the ash trees and have no living trees left.

I be danged!!!! Me too, seriously. Bad itchies all over... >:(

Whoops, back to the thread!!!!!! I did pick up some six 1 lber's a bit ago, for the Buddy heater. Likewise on the 20lb tanks. I knew propane was gonna jack up.  Pretty much set.

UPDATE: Just checked Walmart...the Coleman 2 pk is $17.....holy bejesus gawd!!!!! That's a 215% increase from the usual $6.29 I paid that's on the last one.... :%$#!:

It seems like it is becoming more and more common, I know a handful of people who have it, and now it's 3 people just in this thread. It just hit me out of the blue one day several years back. My lips and tongue swell up, and my face and neck break out in an itchy rash. I even have to be careful with otc cold meds.

I replied to ZCM in a new thread, if you want to discuss that, (I do)  so we can keep this one on propane.  :)

I looked at our Fleet Fram superstore here, (not the same as Farm and Fleet) and they were all sold out... ::)

Not sure what the cost of Propane is around here yet but I'm about to find out. Need a refill. I went to a 5# tank 2 years ago and haven't looked back. Soooo much more convenient...2 places that carry bulk 10 minutes from me... than those 1# grenades and much cheaper (after the initial cost of the tank).

I feel like they are trying to "make you panic buy". They are saying the same thing up here in Canada and it'll be due to "high demand in Europe"...They did the same thing last winter...and suprise...it didn't happen.

I got my 20lbs tank refilled this weekend for 11$ cnd....It may go up but I'm not planning my life around the cost of propane.

It's the idjit news stations that hype this crap up and create all the "hoarding". Already yapping about short supply of turkeys for the holidays. Ya, there are a lot of things in short supply, and that have skyrocketed, steaks at $10 a lb and up, pork prices nuts, etc. That's why I buy when things go on sale, and not until then. I just do without, unless it's a must. Use yer head instead of running aound without one. People in this day and age don't know how to do that. We baby-boomers that grew up with parents that had to ration becuz of WWII know how to stretch a buck and do without just fine.  ::)

Just hit some stores here...the 1 lb'ers were all around $16-18 for TWO. Insane. Menards included....EXCEPT for Home Depot, theirs are $9.50 for two. Grabbed two 2 pks. Same price online for them at Home Dept...so if ya need some 1lb'ers, better run, don't walk to Home Depot. They be hikin' up soon, too.

Better run to get a Flame King refillable... best choice I made last year. Nice tanks and super easy to refill, probably break even on the purchase this year no problem

Summer 2020 propane for my home was $0.99/ gal for summer fill. Pre-pay for winter at $1.19/ gal. We fill it up in the summer and typically in January again to get us through the year.

Summer 2021 propane was $1.59. Pre-pay for winter at $1.74.

Flame king has been out of stock on their refillable 1lb tanks for quite some time.  Most places that do have them have a serious markup.  If anyone sees some that are able to be delivered please advise.  There was one store I forget at the moment which one but it was store pickup only.

Problem is, you'll still have to buy the propane to refill the Flame Kings...and it's already skyrocketed. Has here, anyway. If it hasn't where you live, I'd suggest filling up and maybe grabbing another 20 lb'er of it...the swap'n return or straight fill, whichever is cheaper.

Also if you have some of the older flame king bottles check to make sure it isn't under the recall notice https://flameking.com/1-lb-recall-notice/

Got six 1 pounders this afternoon for $26.69 plus tax. That's $4.74 per 1 pounder including tax. Could have grabbed more, but I have four more in the garage.
It seems to go from zero to hero all some have to do is lie.

Just opened a letter from my propane supplier and life is good here. :)
Locked in @ $0.699 a liter for the winter. Pretty sure that's the same as last year.
That works out to $2.04 US a gallon so not bad.
Maybe I will be able to afford food after all!!!  ;D

Best deals I've found local to me in sask is 19.99 for 3- 1lb. A single one is $8.99/can. I think this is on par from years past. I only use them for cooking so i don't burn through them too fast. Maybe 1-2 a season. I picked up enough for a couple years now. Time to fill the 20lb ones.
