    I will be in the area in 2 weeks, unfortunately with a wife on our annual roadtrip up the coast from SD to SF. I would take everything but she wont let me!

    But it's all free. How can she argue with that.

    The mini cooper with 2 people and a week's worth of luggage disagrees with it as well unfortunately.

    At this point it's not about money anymore, it's about space usage. My hobbies are starting to overflow into communal space and that's not what we agreed to. Leave one Tandy on the kitchen counter for a week and all of a sudden you have a "hoarding problem".

    You'll need a bigger boat. Er, I mean car. Yeah, I get that on the mini.

    You just need some planning. On Monday, I drove home with a 25U rack in the back of a Prius. I had about 4 inches to spare.

    In case of "won't ship" - and if something interest me - would You(and others reading this forum and probably in future) allow to sending someone to take the items? Maybe in future I will have this option, and not always I can travel.

    Not my stuff, but it's my opinion- as someone else who has given away stuff, but also won't ship (not worth the hassle and shipping is crazy these days) - of course someone can come pick it up for you. The point is to have someone come and get it, not who the final recipient is. Often shipping is the worst thing you can do to vintage gear for preservation!

    OK, no serious responses so I'll sweeten it:
    Trs-80 model II with a TON of software. I got this quite awhile back and just never got the time to dive into it. The cover was alreay loose so I'm assuming someone tried to work on it at one time. It has an 8" drive and 8 cards. A large box of binders some with the software.

    a large box of USB keyboards and some mice.

    I will probably add more "stuff" and again you must take it all.
