Where did you get the awesome little bottle of TriFlow? I want it... I Mena, no, you do not want to use that. IN fact, you should send it to me for safe keeping.

Wow, I found a two ounce bottle at a hardware store here in town for about 5.00. Might want to check a good old time hardward store if you have one around you. HD and L ain't gonna have it, but a mom & pop type or an old scholl hardware store may have it.

They may. I would give them a call. You difinately do not want the spray version (some folks have that). You want liquid (like the bottle you or I found).

Cool. I am sure you will find it eventually. Sent you a PM about it.

Oh yeah, when you going to come over so I can borrow your camera person? Been teaching my dogs all kinds of things, but that one ain't working well. It is a pain to clean dog slober off my camera, and I think the teeth marks are voiding my warrenty.

Yep, that is the bottle I have. Mine was some where under 5 but if I was wanting it and coul;d not find it locally, I would probably go that route. The bike shop idea is another good one. But this time call around. Your spending more in gas than the lub driving around looking.

Duct tape... dang-it. I live in the South and didn't even think of that!
