Here in about an hour I am going on a little road trip to very hopefully make a nice little score on something I found on Craigslist at 3:45 AM this morning that I couldn’t believe hadn’t been snatched up by the time I popped awake at 10:00.
I managed to get a hold of the guy but he was on the road so he had crappy phone reception and had to pull over to call me back.
It’s up near Kalama, almost across the river from where the old Trojan Nuclear plant used to be, about forty minutes from here if I drive like a good citizen.
I have been wanting one of these for years now but the only ones I have ever found were either completely clapped out, way, way too expensive or both.
This one looks to be in remarkably good condition and the guy is selling it dirt cheap.
Normally I see people wanting anywhere from $300 to $450 for them, he is only asking $125.
I’m not going to jinx this deal completely because it’s not sitting in the back of my truck yet but here is a teaser.
Of course The Wifely Unit is completely oblivious to this happening as she was in bed when I found it and won’t be up until I am already up there trying to get the final directions to meet this guy.
Then there is of course the issue of just where I am going to put this little jewel but you can rest assured I will make room for it.
So wish me luck!
