I started out the year like gangbusters, it got hot and I went inside and didn't move for months. I started back up, the original project was to get more shit out of the garage so I can see the car. (that I did a little work on) At the pace I now work, and knowing I really don't have that many years left, it's getting critical I get some things done. I built shelves start of january in the tent I put up back in august 2008 to get all the shit out of the garage to get the folvo in. I never really organized anything or even looked inside all the bins. The heat was taking a toll on the stacked bins and I needed to get some support in. Well, here we are 11 months later and I'm going through all the bins and taking pics of all the stuff in there. It is very much like an archaeological dig, I had forgotten about most of this stuff. I can say this, the toys were so much better back then. I had cleaned off my bed at least 3 times this year, it's covered with shit again, but I did get a lot of stuff out of the house, into bins and out in the tent. I'm about 2/3's done, the internets have been sucking and I thought you might need something to look at for a while!

This is also somewhat in preparation of being dead. I keep telling people, your kids don't want to go through all this shit. My friend that gave me the folvo is the same way, he is on the list for a liver, you get to a point where everything you do is dangerous and like Warren said, enjoy every sandwich. He was trying to get one of his triumphs going because he can't kick his norton anymore. He's old school and doesn't feel right accepting help. I went up to help move my mom to a home and it's just brutal having someone go through your stuff. I'm still not over that whole thing. Anyway, here is some of the shit I have collected over the years.... It's sitting at 900 pics as of right now! I haven't put in any comments yet. That doesn't include lego, I have most of that documented here!

Oh man thanks for sharing these pics!

I hear ya on sorting your stuff. My stuff is mostly junk and not as cool as yours, but I feel the same way about burdening someone with it when I'm gone.

Hope things are great. I keep saying I'll get up your way sometime. Keeps not happening. But I'm off between Xmas and New Years so maybe...

If things go through I'll be an hour and a half closer soon. Although my friend now sees that you can grow hops here and is thinking of trying it to sell to the microbrew crowd. He's eyeing a farm subsidy and maybe agrotourism. I don't want no job, I want to sit and look at nature! The closing was supposed to be cyber monday but that is way off now, they didn't respond to our bid and lowered the price. I'm also looking at it as a fat camp, last ditch effort to get in better shape as my blood sugar has sucked this year. If I didn't post it, it's 20 acres in live oak. My wife calls it a militia camp.

It would be nice to put all this stuff in a museum but those are becoming extinct too. I'm thinking it's not that old but 30 years is pretty old! I had a story, can't find it now, but farmer dude had a museum maybe iowa or nebraska, had immaculately restored oliver tractors and farming stuff, americana, his wife has an assload of dolls, they auctioned it off recently. I'm sure he didn't need the money, it was WTF I do with it when I'm dead, kids don't want to fuck with it. The smithsonian should have grabbed it. I really didn't take any time to look at this stuff, but I do still like looking at it. I'd play with the trains and slot cars if I had room. At any rate, I should have everything inventoried and much easier to deal with.

And there's more...
http://imgur.com/a/VeY9d I just got these last year on sale! There is a plan to take pics of the first page of all the non sport cards albums, probably a good 35 binders of card sets.
Some of the marvel cards
http://imgur.com/a/OUjX8
http://imgur.com/a/QWGVX This is one of the olivia pin up sets, I have a lot of art sets!
http://imgur.com/a/swGrp Viewmasters, I have a viewmaster projector too, as well as a 16mm projector and some films, fathers friend spliced film in NY used to bring us movies.
http://imgur.com/a/dTUFy humor and pop culture books, I need to do the car books, I have an extensive library of those too.
http://imgur.com/a/DP5oY Tshirts, probably seen these before, they are also in the tent.
http://imgur.com/a/fE5TM models not built, we buy models thinking we are buying the time to build them...

I do have 100 or so pics of old lego boxes, but it's not hard to find lego pics, those people are insane. This is the living room!

I started taking some shots of old hustlers from the 70's, so much great stuff back then! That is also a massive project.

I gave up for a bit, I ended up with about 2075 photos, I redid the albums to make them a bit more organized. I posted to reddit and got almost no love at all. One person wanted the nickelodeon jacket, it's crap, got it in a bag for a buck sale, they are trying to get $250 on fleabay. Now if this were the dawn of the fleabay I'd be rich, I just don't see people spending on trivial stuff any more. Someone else said that each micromachine is going for good money, I still don't buy it, people ask, people don't get. Hot wheels seem only to be valuable to the people that have them, try to sell and they don't even want to pay retail. I had fun looking through the stuff I have, haven't seen in 20 years! Still hoping for the farm to display some of it, the one we were looking at was sniped by the real estate bitch in gaineville, they don't have money, we are hoping it falls through. Land in Ga is much cheaper, by 1000 an acre, me thinks FL real estate is on the crooked side. Anyway, there is always tons of land for sale, it's just getting in gear and doing something about it.
