I will look into that thank youThere is a seller on Etsey who sells 60 lb bags of bituminous coal for $60, minus a penny. There are others who use a coal forge and many have found that their problem was not loosing their supplier but having the minimum order increased to where they couldn't afford it or didn't have a place to store that much coal. See if there is a farriers supply company around that might carry bags of coal.
I'll second this, and suggest you join! There are a lot of members from the seattle area.Contact the Northwest Blacksmith Association.

Just be careful, it's my understanding that picking things up off the tracks (spikes, etc) is considered by law stealing from the RR company.check your local railroad tracks!
Don't hesitate to call Jim in White Salmon. That's a little closer to you than Monroe....Ty I will have to plan a trip down your way about 6hrs drive
