Thanks to fellow pinsider and northern Vermonter, Scoot, telling me he'd gone to Jersey for an Earthquake, I decided to check the mid Atlantic for sale forum. First day I see a DH for trade and on the list is JP. Great, I'm terrible at the one I've had over a year. Deal struck and before I ask is he wants to meet half way between Vermont & Delaware, because I wasn't sure that was a think, he ask me. Great. 5 hours one way, 5 minutes to swap in a Walmart parking lot merely because it was close to the exit, and we're off for another 5 houi. Even though we parted at 12:30, I still have 100 miles to go. I had to stop at a great place in Turner's Calls, Ma, Mystic Pinball. If you ever get up there, check them out. Now I'm in a BBQ joint for a quick bite. I always tell myself I'll wait until the morning to unload, but it never happens, no matter how late.
In preparation of not buying Sword of Rage, I went back to the beginning. It's but a mere flesh wound.
First EM. Put it in the garage so I don't have to walk the 50' to the house to play on break time from constructing the pinball palace.
It is my birthday, so I had to buy something. It was only 5 minutes away, the closest before was 2 hours, so I had to buy it just on this basis. When I called the guy, he answered by saying, "Jeff?". He already knew me & I him. Played golf with him and his dad. Have got all my flooring from them. They're customers of mine. Never knew he was interested in pins. Funny thing, I had looked in at least a week for pins on CL and was only there looking for a cheap pellet stove to heat the new workshop, but eventually entered pinball. Did a triple take. Couldnt believe any machine was right here in town.
