My former employer who does audio tours is emptying out their warehouse and is throwing out a couple hundred walkmans. They are already in a dumpster by their office and will probably be picked up sometime tomorrow. I send you this information in the hopes you know someone close to Marin (Sausalito) who might have interest enough to dig them out and save them from the landfill for mello-tronic projects and the like.

They’re located out at Fort Cronkhite in the Marin Headlands.

    The heck with those walkmen (walkmans?)….what I want to know is why we’re not drawing attention to the *RAPTOR OBSERVATORY*!

    …wait….maybe this is a ploy to get some makers to show up as tonight’s dinner….

    Well played, Max. Well played.

      Everyone knows that Walkman-enthusiasts taste DELICIOUS, Nate. =]

    I love knowing that someone is bound to run out there and grab those up and build a swarm of B.E.A.M robots or cassette tape sequencer symphony orchestra or something.
