    Default Wanted: your old stuff

    Hey there! So this is my first year getting into this new hobby and I'm really excited about it. At the same time, I realize the initial purchasing and building curve is pretty steep. So this is a "plea" to those who are evaluating their setups for next year. I know that most of us here are guys and guys don't believe in building something smaller and always want "more power". If you're thinking of getting rid of something old that you have in order to get the latest shiny flashy or you're doing some spring cleaning, please let me know. I'm probably interested since I have very little to start from at this point. Just a few lights that I've used on basically static displays for the past few years. Biggest need I think at this point is mini-trees or any of the parts that go along with the mini-trees. And lights. And controllers. But thow can also wait for the sales coming up soon, too!

    Thanks in advance for your consideration!
    - Scott M.

    I have boxes of Blue LED icicles. They are the 70 bulb sets and I have never opened them. I am "pretty sure" there are 21 boxes - at least that's the quantity that I remember. I paid $6 each plus tax but I will take $120 for the whole set. Here's the catch .. I though I packed them out near the open end of my storage attic in my garage. But I went out there and checked everything I can reach .. and could not find them. So if you want them any time soon, I might need some help to try to dig them out .. I could hand stuff down to you while we look.

    I think they are approx 7 foot or 8 foot sets (perhaps somebody knows what the general size of the 70 bulb LED icicle sets are) ? My plan was to install them in pairs with two sets overlapping each other (slightly offset to fill in more space). They will look far better in sets of two since 70 bulbs in not a whole lot. That would have been 10 channels worth, covering 35 to 40 feet - - or double that if you don't mind them being sparse. I jumped to buy them on sale after Christmas, since I am a sucker for a deal. Then I decided I want to stick with incandescent icicles and not mix in LED.

    Everyone, if Scott does not want them then I will open up the offer within the group...
    Thanks,

    You can have my ex-wife. She is old and unwanted, and I traded her in on a newer flashier model.

    From what Al describes, she's a dimwhitt.

    Scott, nope there is nothing bright about her at all. However, you could use her face for your Halloween display to scare the living crap out kids. But then again you might traumatize too many kids. Maybe I should keep her. I would miss telling ex-wife jokes.

    Al, you sure you are not talking about my ex-wife? I hear she is cheap and easy.

    Geez what a small world. Bobby and I are walking out of his scout meeting tonight .. and I hear "Hey Denny" .. And I knew the guy but the location was all wrong .. It was Scott with his son coming out of their Cub Scout meeting .. Troop 200, the same troop as my son, except the Cub Scout troop instead of Boy Scout. This is Bobby's first year with the troop and he's loving it. He passed his board for Tenderfoot tonight.. Pretty good consider they just started the new scouts in February ! Now on to 2nd Class.

    Scott ! It was great seeing you and I'm sure glad you recognized me. I think I was looking at the ground at the time ..
    Thanks,

    Yea, my first thought was "Denny's son is in the Troop? Awesome!"

    Was good to see you again, too! Congrats on getting Tenderfoot! Be sure he goes all the way to Eagle. It's paid off dividends for me along my life's journey!

    He'll go all the way to Eagle. We discuss our hobbies and clubs in great detail before we sign up. Then once he decides he's in, it's my job to keep him there (with his permission to do so) .. And he's already a great scout. Bobby jumped right out helping another scout with his Eagle project last week, and Bobby has only been in scouting for a few months. He'll nail it ! ..... <I hope> ..

    good! I understand that it's best to do it before he discovers the "fluids"... kissing and cars. Gets a LOT tougher after he discovers those...

    Can't help but agree about the "fumes" Perfume and gas fumes....My son (who is now 25), got his Eagle. While I was an assistant ScoutMaster, I saw lots of boys who almost got to eagle, but was overcome by those 'fumes, and never made it.

    New location - new display. Looking forward to 2015 season!

    I am one of those. I was SPL of the troop, 2nd level of Order of the Arrow, everything done for Eagle except one or two merit badges, and the service project. Started playing music. Music attracted lots of fumes. I liked the fumes. Desires won out over common sense ..
