What happened to this member ?
« on: July 25, 2013, 02:34:33 PM »
This member was a consistent contributor, but like a couple of his female counterparts, he seems to have vanished.

Did we hear any last words from him?

I don't now.  Miss Craig's input.  He was nice, sent me a bunch of cell phones, free of charge, not even shipping, to practice fixing them.

Miss Money too.

Maybe they got tired of being tracked - LOL!

Just Kidding - .....

Most likely are the following (though there are many other reasons):

1) Lost job.

2) Lost loved one (death/separation/divorce).

3) Lost life.

4) Lost interest in storage auctions or in talking about them on a forum.

I think number 4 is the most common.

I think Craig's didn't much like messing with big units, and I remember him more then once saying he would let the regulars with stores win the units they wanted, so maybe he just lost interest.

I think I remember Money saying they live to far in the boonies to have effective yard sales. Likely lost interest, along with family issues, in auctions as well.

Have they been lurking, or totally off the radar?

Perhaps we should send them an e-card welcoming them back.

We could even have the card play some John Sebastian.  :D   Damn, I feel old.

Ah - I'm glad I was missed.  :)

I'm still around but not as active posting.  Got a promotion so been working more hours at work.  Plus with the summer we did some vacations.  My auction days have declined.  I only make 2-3 auctions a month now.  Do most of my buying from estate sales, yard sales, and people that come up to the store when I work on sat.  Do have an auciton this friday and saturday.

I still buy one or two units a month.  Mostly smaller ones unless I have time.  I did finally give in and purchased a 7x14' enclosed trailer.  Can fit all sorts of stuff in that baby. 

I'll try and check in more often....

No, in regard to "pickin'.com"....as Travis woiuld say ...."just kidding".  Travis commented elsewhere that he would do it if he didn't have so many other things going...including buying lockers again.
