So a bit of background - As a kid my mom would take me out to garage sales during the summer. Partly as a way to keep me occupied, and partly just to be thrifty. As a kid, I'd burn holes through my knees in my jeans faster than you could blink. Inexpensive 2nd hand clothes were a good way to save a ton of money. I'm sure she found other useful items as well. Well here we are in present day. I don't browse the clothing racks, as I'm sure Mrs. HC would raise an eyebrow and tell me to get rid of the surplus of clothing I already have. However, there are plenty of other goodies and gadgets you can find. I like to head out around 8am on a Saturday morning and wrap up around noon. I go out without a single thing in mind to find. It's kinda the thrill of the hunt. See something from childhood and reminisce over it, get out and socialize, and if you're super lucky, find a treasure or two. Most days, I come home empty handed, gas tank a bit lighter. Chalk it up to cheap entertainment for no more than $5 of gas for the car. This past weekend, I did manage to find a pretty sweet bit of loot. Someone was selling a NetGear NightHawk x6 R8000 router. This sale was one of my least favorite as nothing was priced. Everything was make an offer. I feel like I don't want to low-ball them and offend them, and I don't want to offer too much, and get taken. I was doing my usual quick scan of the goods being offered up when I caught their electronics table. I saw this bit o treasure sitting there. I walked up to it, inspected it, and the device model / name instantly caught my eye. I picked it up, and said I've no idea the value on these things, I can't make an offer. What are you looking to get on it? She said "That's an internet router." not knowing if I even knew what I was holding. I played along, not giving hint at the cost of such a device. She paused, and said her husband has to have the latest and greatest, and he upgraded and now doesn't need that one. She then said, how about $10. I questioned whether it was still in full working order. Yep, it is. Trying to hold my excitement, I said, hmm... okay, deal. My insides were squealing with excitement. Brought it home, blanked the configuration, updated the firmware, configured it for my use, and it's all set and running. Currently being sold at BestBuy for $250: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/netgea...nd-wi-fi-router-black/7201035.p?skuId=7201035 Cost on Saturday - $10 bucks, and no gas, as I was car pooling with my 'g-sales' buddy. I check with his wife first, as he'll drop his to-do list to go g-saling with me, then he gets in trouble. Hah! It's all about the thrill of the hunt.
