Someone started a thread asking if anyone made provisions for their record collections after they're gone. Now, some of us do not have family or do not have family and friends that want records.

So, how about a forum where people can see if other RCG members would be interested in taking their collections after they pass on?

Yes, past and future RCGers, I will take them. I'll pay postage. I'll do pick-up's. I want them, I responded first, they're mine.
Thanks!

Harrisburg can be pretty rough; I'm actually across the river from there, in a 'burb, where I fit in nicely with the rest of the wimps.

You're on, but I won't be travelling by foot; now all we need is an RCGer, with no relatives, who happens to say "I don't feel so good"!

Well, it is an issue and I'm one of those who is concerned.

I am fighting off (successfully for about 6 years now) having to go into an ALF, more to get my wife taken care of than for me. It is still coming and gets closer on a day to day basis. I've put stuff up on EBay but I value my records higher than EBay seems to expect and they don't sell well. I don't even have any active stuff right now and it is (was) the holiday when maybe a few would sell. It just isn't worth the effort to me right now.

At the same time, I do think my collection has value and would like to get some value from it if I do find I can no longer maintain it. It's all a hard choice.

I got a couple of PMs concerned that I might be offended by the jokes ahead of my response here.

I'm not. I'm just looking at it as a legit problem right now. Some will load up and come visit St. A just on spec! (Bring money!)
