Picking Up the Last of the Back Issues

Bella with back issuesYesterday I drove to Dave Neville’s home outside Pittsburgh, and picked up boxes of back issues of the magazine. This was my second trip. Last weekend, I picked up the first half the boxes and signed the purchase agreement. On that trip, I drove alone. This time I brought along Bella, our 10-year-old pug. Here she poses with some of the 40 boxes that I unpacked from the car. In the two trips combined, I brought home 81 boxes containing about 6,000 issues. Not bad considering the moving vehicle was a Honda Civil Hybrid!

Next comes the task of organizing and making an inventory of the contents. This work will help me to determine which issues are missing from the archive, and also allow me to list the inventory for sale on tis site and elsewhere.
