I thought the first rule of B.A. collectors/operators is never throw
anything away.  I have disposed of things that 20 years later I have
needed.  I know there is a limit to what you can keep, but I'm not sure
where that limit is.

I was rebuilding a small travel trailer once and wanted to use one of
those restaurant stainless steel steamer pans for a shower pan.  A trip
to the local junk yard, 10 acres in size and a perfect pan was found
under a stack of rusting government surplus desks, surrounded by snake
hiding grass way back in the lot.  I carefully extracted the pan and
made my way to the front to pay for it.  The junk yard owner was not
there, and his wife was reluctant to put a price on it and said, "Bobby
Ray is not here right now, and I don't know what he wants for that, he
may have a use for that".  At this point, I discovered how all
junkyards have started.  Some fellow put some thing aside thinking one
day,"...he might have a use for that".  Before you know it, you have a
house/garage/yard or 10 acres full of stuff, some of it hiding under a
pile of other things you might have a use for.

But its fun, ain't it? And I'm still kicking myself for selling my
complete working NAVY TCS station with the 110VAC PS back in 1976.
