    Will finally be getting out of Alabama late December but unfortunately can't go straight back to Denver cause I have a 5 month TDY (temporary duty) in Albuquerque....My pins are either going in storage for 5 months or need to get sold. Used to have a house they could go in Denver til I caught my wife in bed with a surgeon.....Bummer huh....

    Anyways since I got no place in Denver and I'll be in essentially a hotel room in ABQ, storage or sell and re-aquire at a later date? Another problem is I can't pick the moving company nor will I be around when my stuff gets thrown (literally most likely) in storage, so I can only imagine the damage my machines will suffer....

    Quoted from Blakesell:

    I'm sure there are a couple people on here trustworthy enough for a lend/rent. Any in AL or nearby?

    Problem is then I have to retrieve them from Alabama

    Quoted from Blakesell:

    Alright! You've twisted my arm. Ship them to me and I'll Rent to own! I'm kinda broke at the moment but I'll give ya my in laws as collateral.

    You totally had a deal right up til that last part....Getting rid of the in laws I got already...

    Quoted from captainadam_21:

    Shouldn't have you gotten the house if you caught her in bed with someone else? Sounds like your attorney wasn't too good.

    What about friends or family? I'm sure someone would hold onto your pins until you are situated.

    I was paying for the house (rental) til the hidden camera caught the amateur porno and now I no longer am paying for said rental...No lawyer, but she pretty much got nothing except what was hers before we married which was most of the furniture since my went on the curb...

    Family is in WI, none of my friends have that kind of room in their places. Don't have any pin friends as I'm only six months into this hobby...My life sounds like a dang country music song...

    Quoted from emo:

    Sorry to hear of your plight. If you can find a way to keep some or all of them I would as it is getting harder to find good games.
    Good luck

    That's what scares me...Especially when it comes to a nice Wh2o. I see how hard it is from all the other threads. I got so lucky on mine....

    One pin will fit in my XC90, so I might be bringing that Wh2o with me. Who knows maybe it will fit in my room or a pinsider in ABQ....But I also have a WOZ on order....

    I put pics up of the other two in the price check x 2 thread....

    Quoted from system11:

    I think you should try to retain ownership of them if they're all as nice as the Whitewater looks. I used to have a classic Trans Am, kept it at a climate controlled car storage depot - during the summer when business was quieter the owner used to top up the bays by renting the space as plain storage by the lot - one time I saw a pile of vintage penny operated amusement machines in one. Something to consider - what you don't want is to throw them in a cold and clammy garage.

    I actually can't control what kind of storage the gov't decides to use. So I highly doubt they would go in a climate controlled storage area when they get to denver.

    Quoted from jrrdw:

    In your case sell. No stable game room, pending divorce? and moving around the country your better off traveling light until you get your game room in order. No matter where in the world you are your a Pinsider and you have us and you can play in the wild and reacquire pins later...

    I think this is probably the best advice. Even when I'm done in ABQ, I'm still homeless. Might move back to Denver, might be Salt Lake City. Needs to be close to a major airport, and mountains cause snowmobiling is my other addiction (already had to sell the sled and the truck and the sled deck). I'll probably keep the Wh2o with me (The Air Force will pay me for moving it myself). Love to keep the TZ but the Volvo can only fit one. Once I get a house with a kickass huge basement for a gameroom then maybe I can re-start my collection...

    Thanks for all the inputs - it's been helpful and uplifting to see all comments!!
