Material things, going.

Some life milestones have changed my view of the world, but particularly material things. I can go into it irl over beers, if anyone wants to talk about where disease, death, and duty converge in life.

Anyway. All the backups to the backups in the quiver, buddy & kid setups, prospective trip gear, gun building, rigging supplies collected over a dozen years of this freediving thing have got to go. As well as a s-ton of rodnreel fishing stuff, fly gear, much NIB. Metalworking lathe. Golden age Craftsman machines (bandsaws, lathes, grinders). Premium and antique woodworking hand tools. A garage full of shelves packed with stuff, basically. Will consider a nice round figure just to take it off my hands and regain the physical and mental space, preferable to dropping it at playitagain for pennies, or the thousand cuts of ebay.

Local pickup, lol.
monkey see, monkey do

Re: Material things, going.

I can really empathize right now. Hope all moves forward in a positive way. Best, Mike.

And I vouch for davej aka surfer dave, fisherman, kite guy, gun builder, etc. Again, may we all move in a positive direction.
Actually, yes, that yt is almost 30#'s. Hell, it's almost as big as me!

Re: Material things, going.

You have my sympathy...my wife's biggest fear isn't my pending demise, but, rather, having to get rid of my garage full of stuff " I might need some day"....couple of suggestions: consider an "estate sale" wherein their staff sets up the sale online with photos of items... lots of people read their calendar, looking for deals...usually a 3 day sale with prices dropping down to half of tagged prices the final day (see: EstateSales.net for their listings)...advertising higher priced items on Craig's List often results in a quick sale, as well as fishing sites like Bloodydecks...or, hauling it to a consignment business or auction house to do the selling is another possibility...hope all goes well...
