Could also go under Vintage Media subforum as well.

If anybody is local to either Sunnyvale or Sonora and wants to help three old fat and handicapped Veterans in wheelchairs schlep out of one storage into another and help on one end or the other over the next couple mos - give a holler.

Contents include several storages merged into one of now-defunct
recording and video studios
stereo repair shops
antique stores and the like.

Got our $20,000 worth of used pallet racking donated by a rack jobber to our Veterans Nonprofit
Got another Veteran trucker to donate the $2,000 freight it would have cost because
A he was already in Sacramento offloading something else and
B he had to be out here Friday night anyway to do a Monday pickup.
so it would have been ``deadheaded'' otherwise and cost just as much gas to come out empty as full.

That means we can close down the $350 a month storage in Sunnyvale and move it all into a donated and secure industrial space here in Sonora and save $700 a month that can then go to our Veterans nonprofit for programs and services.

Pop and pizza provided free by Pizza Hut. That sould be incentive enough to at least get all the other Old Fat and Handicapped guys to help out. How to get everybody else to help out? Maybe enough of the OFHs have draftees they can bring.

Welll...I'm not fat and not TOO old...but if I lived in your area,
I would surely help out.
It's wonderful that so many people are coming forward to help! :)

Fabulous idea. If we had something like that here, I also would be there. Your a little far for me to help.
Sounds like a win-win for all.

I figure if we do this right either
A) different sets of guys will come out different weekends - some in Sunnyvale to onload and some in Sonora to offload or
B) we set up Army Basic Training type open-bay dorms in what will eventually be the bunkhouse at our ranch near Sonora and spend three nights in a row saying Goodnight John-Boy Goodnight Ben Goodnight Jim-Bob Goodnight Daddy Goodnight Grampa..... just like we did when we first got to the Army Induction Center.

If you had said 'Free beer and pizza' the resulting crowds would have run your ass over.

Except people gotta drive back and forth - or if there's a lot of them - be able to tolerate air beds on the floor. And companies don't usually give out free beer where they WILL give out free pop.
