I know.  One of my fantasys involves me passing through Lake Geneva in the 80's when I see a large box of something is tossed into a dumpster...driving over for a better look, I get out of the car to find a box full of modules called B3 with an orange cover...and I chuck the entire load into the trunk and head home...

don't know exactly why, but i have another fantasy... anyway i believe that it'd not the correct place to write it down...  :lol:

seriuosly: i wonder why, all the US collectors don't use to look around in the lost forgotten mini store in the middle of the US campaign if there is still some woody (or smtg similar) on the shelves... this is actually one of my recurrent thoughts: since i'm not american i cannot realize it so easly... but you, guys...

Always on the lookout....and sometimes you get lucky.  Like the guy in east texas small town that still had the From the Ashes box sets on the shelf for cover price about ten years after they came out..I always wonder what leads someone to just leave something on a shelf that long, particularly when a very short trip to ebay would have let them know the worth of those items....
   I think at this point, it would be difficult to find stuff like a woody on a shelf.  Now, in storage is a different story, either privately (in a rented shed) or publically (store stock left behind in an abandoned warehouse/storefront).  I've heard of treasure troves in both instances....I probably need to get into the industry where they auction off contents of storage sheds for owners not paying their rent, I've heard of tremendous finds in some cases...you pay cash and the items are yours.  I know the warehouses around me have auctions at the end of every month.  Sounds intriguing.

A little Googling led me to a page that says it was released by TSR (as the auction picture implies).  Another auction has the CD for a US$1.99 BIN:  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 4868565007

CD track listing from that auction's text:

. . . Hangin' with TSR (19:15)
. . . Sound Secrets (7:70)
. . . Savage Baronies - Music Montage (5:10)
. . . Red Steel - Music Montage (5:22)

The title "Hangin' with TSR" does not give me a good feeling inside.   8O

Ah now I see why you can afford the woody, you're riding the oil boom!  I still think Alberta should start sharing the wealth :)

Hey Mars!

It's not like Ontario is short on wealth. Try making a living in New Brunswick!
All we have is drive-thru tourism, fish, lumber and call centers (which are slowing migrating to Bangalore)  :)

Actually, I'm used to living up North in Ontario, mainly Thunder Bay, which also does not see much wealth.  For some reason the wealth of Ontario tends to get spent on Southern Ontario :(
