      Actually he hinted that he might have something else going on this Saturday and might have to cancel
      anyway, so I offered to go there next week during the work day and take a look.  I have a good idea of what
      people are looking for and will see what he's got that meets those goals.
      I work about 15 minutes from the warehouse.  If anyone else wants to go during the week, let me know
      and we can schedule a common time.
      He does take credit cards, but there is a discount for cash.

      OK. I understand that Bob will communicate with the group what he finds
      and people can take it from there.
