When I moved into my current home 5 years ago it took me three trips
with a 17' U-Haul to get all the gear moved from one storage locker
to one closer to home.
Since I am no longer actively hacking on or dealing in surplus gear
it too was a good thing (for me anyhow) to shed all of the excess
stuff. Took forever to do though it seemed.
Now I just need to apply this lesson to my model airplane goodies...
I'm the guy the 'tow-away' signs warned you about.
