Dale replied to George Thomas Wilson's discussion A Collector's Journey Across America
"Love the photos. My brother and I have done two road trips around the US and Canada now (wives not into road trips), so seeing your photos was like a trip down memory lane."

Hi Dale,

You have mentioned some good friends.  I have not talked with Howard and his wife Jane for years.  I purchased some unique items from them.  I basically stopped collecting in the early 2000's as it became harder and harder to fine the items I wanted; also my collection is so large it developed a life of its own.  There is not much that I don't have.  I would like to talk with you about collecting.  My email is pjepdds@aol.com

Three options:

1. I know a collector in Melbourne who is looking for many of the magazines you have and might be prepared to cover costs for posting them to Melbourne, or pick them up. You'd have to send me your email address so I can forward it to them so you can both discuss.

2. Give them to the Salvos (or any Opportunity Shop). They usually sell them. Old magazines make great dentist/doctor waiting-room reading.

3. Give them to a primary school who may use them for their pictures for projects, etc.

4. Put an free ad in one of those online sales sites (Gumtree?) to sell individual magazines as gifts for individual birthdays (birth month).

I would be interested in getting the December 1960 issue. Although I already have copies of this, I want one to keep with some Apollo 11 memorabilia I have.

Please don't throw them out.....
