    Gf isn’t the hoarder it was her 75yo parents who up and moved giving her and her son a 3 bedroom house with every closet and the basement packed full of stuff. Her dad has about ten 5 drawer Rubbermaid file cabinets packed with legos. Probably 100 erector sets. Over 500 books. Boxes of magazines and other stuff. They even saved the old fluorescent light bulbs in the basement. Probably 1k train engines and cars plus 500ft of track. Old wood and drywall in the basement.

    Untill the paperwork is signed over itvis andcwi) be moms way. I have seen situations like this several times.
    They wait to legally turn the property over and the medical.bills start to pile up and the county of state take everything.

    I wish you the best of luck in your situation.

    Spending time in the woods is the most peaceful thing in the world. Why are you so wrapped up with all the equipment. Just get out there and enjoy. Bagging a deer is not the main goal of hunting. At least not for me. Actually have killed many deer over the years, really do not care anymore if I actually score one any more. Just like to relax in the woods. If it was something of a stress, I would look for another hobby.

    I leave for vacation in 11 days. At this point I should have new line on the spincasters, new line on the fly rod, a couple dozen flies tied, and some hard baits in an ammo can ready to hit the beach. I have 6 flies and old line.

    I don’t have a decent place to hunt where I can do anything like hang stands or such, so I will be hunting from the jonboat (legal, talked to game warden, I’m good as long as I don’t shoot while I’m “under power”, life jacket on with orange over the top... follow all boating and hunting laws) but even as such, I have 0 rifles in my home that are properly zeroed. The only one that comes close is the 6.8 AR and it’s zeroed at the arbitrary distance where the local range has a 6x6 steel plate hanging... roughly 150 yards. But it’s only hitting the plate, it’s not been put on paper to see what it’s actually doing either. Bows... haven’t unzipped the cases in 2 years.

    Your more prepared than I am. At least I have a couple good reasons to be behind, one is blonde and the other brunette, and they think the world of their daddy... so much so that daddy keeps getting projects added to the list before the current list gets finished.

    I wonder what the market is for older Legos. That also may explain where all the erector sets are that I never saw. I don't know how y'all are about building stuff, but I'm seeing what sounds to me like an increasingly rare opportunity for the kid. A hundred erector sets... the only limit is the imagination. :cool: That, plus all that railroad stuff... Hey, what kind of books? Anything to do with mechanicing and engineering?

    I am obsessed with equipment because if I am not proficient with my bows then what is the point? Wound a deer because I haven't touched a bow in 2yrs and it doesn't matter? I don't mind if I don't tag out but when it comes time we all need to make sure we are 100% ready to go because we owe it to the animal. I probably wont run cameras, and the only reason I do is to see how many doe and how many hunters are on the property. If the property doesn't hold a lot of doe I wont take a doe. Ohio screwed the pooch when it comes to deer numbers and some places are very high and some very low, so gotta play management.

    Kids don't want it now days unless its got a controller or keyboard. Books range from guns, war, military to novels.

    I know the tendency is widespread, and you've already said this kid plays video games, but I wouldn't say the tendency is universal. You did say he had a blast running the riding lawn mower... wonder what he'd say to learning what makes it go and keeps it running. Some kids it will surprise you what clicks when they see it.

    Books... I think it's harder to figure what'll turn a kid's head. Thing is, even though we've been a tad over 20 years with the net as we know it, everybody still lives and dies in analog.
