don't know why i waited so long to post this, should have put it in with my introduction.
anyway, i found this in 2006, an you guys will hate me if i tell you what i paid for it, so we'll skip that part. it measures 12 feet long and dates back to the late 1940's, and yes it is the real deal, i know how to tell the difference between it and the newer stuff. i've been offered 10 grand for it, but i told my wife i plan to use it as my coffin when the time comes, guess you really CAN take it with you! ha aha hah!
