I scheduled this to post today, but somehow it got inserted out of order. Guess I wasn't watching what I used for the post date!
Boy.....I'll be leaving Kommiefornia in ten days. Things are getting really REAL here!
morning I'm picking up the little 4'x6' trailer again, and taking
another full load to the eWaste / electronic recycling place. It pains
me to dump perfectly good, usable, serviceable stuff, but I just can't
take it all with me.
A couple of my friends came over
to look through it, but they're not satellite or microwave guys, and one
of them expected everything to be pristine, 100% functional, include
the manuals and original shipping boxes, and be free-for-the-hauling.
equipment I have like that is NOT going to be given away! It's already
packed up and waiting to be loaded on the trailer.
The Good Old Days", Hams were happy to take stuff that needed a bit of
work and some cleaning, but was otherwise useable, and especially if it
These days? Most of then have devolved into
"appliance operators", very few people build anything more complex than
station accessories, and unless the gear you have to offer is clean and
fully functional, nobody wants it.
And as soon as the coffee kicks in this morning, I'm going to tear into the Jeep and do the brakes on all four corners.
figured since I was putting new rotors and pads on the rear, I might as
well do the front, so I picked up two new front rotors while I was at
O'Reilly's. I decided to go with ceramic pads on the rear, along with
matching pads for the front. These will hopefully last a good long time.
I should probably replace the rear shocks, as they're just starting to
get a bit "bouncy", but that can wait. I'll do the front and rear shocks
once we're in Colorado...
