I plan to purchase and bring (at least) one plastic shelving unit and a box
or two of clear plastic leaf bags. I too have seen the basement and it's very
important to stablize the items in that location asap. Nothing should ever be
on the floor. There should be at least 6 inches space. Perhaps we should
bring some new cardboard boxes, or even better plastic storage bins.
The plastic shelves I am talking about are totally portable, and are packed
into a "flat box the shape" like a table top. I use these for my collection of
computers and will easily fit into the back of a hatchback car. You can get
them at Lowes/Home Depot/Wallmart for about $25-40 each. I plan to bag and
put the PDP8 and Intel memory units (those big blue things you referred to) on
this shelf, I consider these to be the top priority. We also have that old HP
unit to preserve.
Note that getting into the basement is tough and only a pre-fab shelf can fit
down the stairs (packed).
In general I wish to have the items that are "more important" moved to the
best locations. THings like ink jet printers from 1997 are not.
