Selling Out and Moving On
As part of my purge, I'm selling various parts of my old life. My website has a page on Filk/Folk music for sale and one of Science Fiction and Furry artwork for sale. For the less collectible and things that are not worth shipping like furniture, I plan on trying Craigslist and a yard sale. Oh, I also have my house in escrow, so I have a hard date when I need to get stuff out of here. While the house is selling for less than what I think it is worth, there are many other good things about the offer. Some stuff it may make economic sense to keep till the bitter end, even if it means giving it away. EBay is another way I may try selling stuff.
Books are something that will be hard to sell. The typical SF mass-market paperback goes for $1 plus shipping on ABE. As I have over a thousand of them, and hundreds of hardbacks, just listing them all is daunting, let alone trying to research price. Books are heavy and bulky enough that I can't haul them all around. Maybe I'll give them to the UCR Eaton collection if they are interested.
Computers and Electronics are another special case, but one that's worth close to zero. Some may be donated to The Computer History Museum, they already accepted one of my old computers. The one pictured was just offered to them, it's on their wanted list. (It's a thinkpad with a powerpc processor.)
I'll be in my motorhome full time before the Rexhall Homecoming Rally. It is possible I will stick around Southern California for it, but the $150 fee combined with my experience at the Rexhall-NoNothing rally are two strikes against it. Last year I missed the Homecoming because I received my Rexhall during the rally. It has been almost a year since I purchased my motorhome.
