Hey gang - been lurking for awhile now, but finally decided to join-in on the fun. I get the impression that there's a good market out there for gently-used backpacking/camping gear? I've got a closet-full, some of it hardly ever used it all for various reasons, but mostly because years ago I discovered that I like canoe-camping much better than lugging everything around on my back like some reluctant sherpa. Amongst my pile of unused gear are a sweet Dana/K2 Loadmaster Longbed that I only used twice and a Dana Bridger that I foolishly bought when someone convinced me to hop on the internal-frame bandwagon. Both have been shelved for years, and I know for a fact that before storing them I slipped a couple of mothballs and those cedar-balls into each. I'll do some research to figure out an asking price, but in the meantime any advice on what information I should include would be helpful, including anything specific I should focus on when I take pictures of the packs. I also have an Outdoor Research Advanced Bivy and a Hennessey Hammock that I never used because I found out, belatedly, that I have some slight claustrophobia issues. haha Is that something other members might be interested in, or are they more of a "BackpackingLight" kind of thing?
Thanks in advance, and looking forward to summer 2001!
