Thanks Scott. OK, I'll buy the game from my friend for $100 and collect donations later. Also, he says that it's OK to transport the game laying on its back side. Does that sound proper?

wammie, that's how I've always transported my cabs. Be careful--the weight can be weirdly distributed! The sizes can also be deceiving. A Gauntlet cab can fit in an Astro with no seats with only an inch or two to spare.

Thanks Adam. I think I can use my aunt's truck with an 8 ft bed and topper. We'll be careful.

OK, the seller is wondering when we can do the pick up. I think I can get a truck and dolly for the job, but probably could use a couple other guys to go with me to Coon Rapids to load, return, and unload at the Hack Factory. Or... if anyone else has a truck we can use for this that's fine too. At this point just looking for volunteers and some idea of the best time to do this; evenings are good for the seller and weekends too.

Great, Smittex! Coon Rapids is a northerly suburb about 17 mi. from the Hack Factory. Also, I found that I won't be able to borrow the truck I had in mind until probably Thursday of next week, so if anyone else can truck us before next Thursday, that would be just swell. :D

Tuesdays are a good day for the owner. I don't know if I can get my aunt's truck today, but if I can, or if anyone else has a truck, would it be possible to pick it up this evening?

OK, looks like things are shaping up for a pickup this evening, with my aunt's truck. I can be at the H.F. around 5:45 to 6:00 for anyone that wants to help and ride to Coon Rapids for the pickup. My brother-in-law is coming too, so if nobody is able to help, we'll try to manage with us two. I will have a ramp for the back of the truck and a dolly with straps.

The game has been delivered! It's near the rack shelving on the South wall of the main area. Tomorrow I'll be at open hack night, and I'd appreciate it if those who are able to donate toward this can pay me something. The cost was $110.
