Good Buys

Military Surplus stuff is pretty readily available. I just ordered a new East German dark grey full length, lined wool coat for $20 and matching wool slacks for $18. Should make a nice winter coat for next year. Three years ago we bought a Marine Corp. radio that was used as a high country base station during Viet Nam for $200. We are able to broadcast as well as receive radio and teletype messages from all over the world. This year we will be picking up some Canvas Tents: one 24' x 52' for $150 and two 16' Hex for $ 50 each. All three tents come with all the poles, etc. At past meets we've found great buys such as:
