    Yes, it's her place; as I think I said, she raised 5 kids in that house. I don't have a real feel for her financial situation. She bought her log fort house W of PT from friends that moved elsewhere.
    The PEX tools are a cutter for plastic pipe, and a crimper for the special fittings that PEX connections need. I own the cutter, but not the crimper. I have to replace a water line at home this fall, from the meter to under the house (old, galvanized, rusting away, getting thin), as the house is 95; and, I'll be buying the crimper this fall.

Yes, I think you're the guy I remember and what you're saying sounds familiar. I need to call Nita I guess. Good point about how long Toaster House will remain in service and to what extent Nita can/wants to invest in the place. I think $500 can be raised and materials brought over. And we don't have PEX tools so those would also have to be purchased or borrowed. 
I will keep in touch. If Nita is interested, I'll see about setting up a collection and trying to schedule a work party. No sense in getting too excited until we find out what Nita thinks of this.

    That might be me, but I've just done p/o the GET, and am heading to p/o the Hayduke thru the end of May; then I'll finish either the CDT or PCT or both in late Jun thru early Sep. I'd be willing to help in that late Aug thru early Sep timeframe; keep me posted.   
The whole place really needs replumbed with PEX, because freeze breaks and old pipes, some galvanized and copper as I recall; both will freeze break. PT is at 8,000 ft. We'd need to talk to Nita to be sure she wants to keep Toaster House going for the forseeable future. Also the closest place to buy PEX would be a hundred miles away on I-25 or maybe somewhere in AZ.  
    I just read Mary Kwart's PT post; the place is really worse than ever if the toilet and shower don't work. How about one of you start a separate mailing list for Pie Town, but always post to cdt-l also to get more help. As I said in an earlier post we need to find out if, or how much Nita is willing to pay for supplies; or, should we just take up a collection amongst us. I'd make an estimate of $500 minimum for supplies and 2 special tools, one of which I have in TX, but not with me.  
    As I said a month ago, the pies at the    Pie-O-Neer are the best you'll ever have, unless your mamma was a damn great baker! Nita leaves the packages inside the TH; I've never heard of a problem; and, again she lives 3 miles outside of town.

      We might make some time to get over to Pie Town and see what Nita needs done there. There was another person with plumbing experience on this list who mentioned helping out. Hello?
