Worth the short trip.

Postby Barnyard » Thu Apr 14, 2022 10:24 pm

The off road club I belong to had it's annual spring swap meet last weekend. I normally have a trailer load of stuff to sell and spend Friday thru Sunday trying to get rid of what I can. This weekend they were calling for cold and rain so I decided not to waste my time loading up. Saturday I stopped down for a while and there were maybe twenty sellers, normally we have over a hundred at least. I spent about an hour or so chatting with some friends and headed home. On Sunday after leaving the gm I figured it was a somewhat warm day and I was only five miles away so what the heck, lets see if anybody is there. Normal most people are done by noon and gone on Sunday, this day there were a few new faces,

The second vendor I visited had a box full of wrenches. I picked through everything and asked how much. I ended up buying 35 wrenches for $16.00. 22 of them were Craftsman. 10 are Speedway Series, I know nothing about that brand, but they look decent. Some were not what I really needed, but many of the others made it worth taking it all home home. When you host a fairly large CubFest, it is best to have some extras around.

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

You paid just over .45 cents per wrench. That’s a dog-gone good deal!

That $16 was just the down payment. Now you need to buy a new Husky tool box to put them in.
