    I'm a member of my local FreeCycle, a group where you post items that you no longer need and other members that can make use of that item are welcome to it for free. You can also post an item that you would like, and if another member has one lying around they can offer it to you. I realize that our membership is pretty spread out, but was wondering if it could work for PUP? I have some camping items (and non camping items) that I never use and I don't have enough stuff (or time) to have a garage sale. If the members are in the same town they could go and pick it up or, if in different cities, pay for the postage to have it mailed to them. Just a thought.

    That's not a bad idea at all. I have given away some gear that I wasn't using to others PUP'ers who needed it. Helping each other is what this site's members are best at.

    Why not just put it under the current area of
    "DEALS TO GOOD NOT TO SHARE"?

    Anyway, if it is free someone will pick up on it if it.
