Thank you for the invite.  I am located in N. Texas currently, and PA is quite a 
bit more that an afternoon drive.  I do appreciate the offer, nothing would make 
me happier than crashing a S/36 party!!

I have seen them there also,  I used to buy a ton of stuff of of eBay, but I 
have pretty much faded away from there since they pretty much forced paypal on 
everyone.   It might be a good thing though, I would probably have a house
