Willing to pay a lot for shipping from ebay?

This is a lot from the oregon police being auctioned off. Comes in at 600 pounds!

Says it includes some HP calculators, but doesn't specify which ones.

Perhaps someone in oregon might want to consider taking a chance? If so, you have to tell me if this is a skid full of HP-70s. :-)

If only we knew an Oregonian....

It's too bad we don't know someone in Oregon....

Say, what about Dave Hicks? Salem's less than an hour to the south of the MoHPC, we could all chip in a few dollars to the pot, and send him south. :)

if that works for someone who wants to bid on it. I would probably have to toss the non-HP items because the whole pile won't fit in my car and I wouldn't know what to do with the excess stuff anyway. In exchange for the service, I'd pick out an item or two for myself.

Also, be prepared to help pay a fee for dumping if I can't find a free way to get rid of the excess stuff. They may not be amused at the idea of me picking up only 2% of the pallet :)

If that's OK then bid and email me.
