    We need a gear master. Mostly BS kind of work, keeping track of stuff, and monthly TPS reports, but you get to play with a lot of toys that go your way. Pay is $75 per month. In addition, all your shipping costs will be reimbursed.

    Friends only with history. Contributors will be considered too if you can get people I know to vouch for you.

    How many hours a week are you thinking it takes? (Maybe previous gearmasters can chime in.) I've got ton of experience shipping stuff, etc. and am great with details (when it comes to hobbies) but I should talk to the wife first and count the cost first. I'd have a blast though.

    I'd love to hear more stuff too as it passes through, but honestly, the shipping cost of some of the bigger stuff has made me hesitate, so this would be a cool way to experience more of the higher end stuff.

    I'm in Anaheim, so that may be a plus, though obviously not a necessity.

    Great resume stuffer "Gear Master 2017"...

    I'd offer help too, that is only if @Merrick fails the drug test (he totally will)

    Actually I've been sober since January specifically since I figured most jobs I could get would ask for a drug test before hiring. I don't even drink anymore!

    This probably isn't helping my case, is it?

    I live in the older Malibu Canyon part of the Calabasas (the cheap seats), just outside of the gates of newer exclusive communities where the Kardashians reside. Do you know how many of my nice old lady neighbors have marijuana plants growing in their backyards? We're not talking about hippies. We are talking about Reagan Republicans. And half the small business owners I know take a pot break every now and then.

    All this war on drugs stuff is bullshit. The rich people inside Hidden Hills abuse Vicodin, or wine.

    I think he'd do excellent. I enjoy his presence both here and on HF, I'd personally like to see a mediator of sorts between the two worlds. He may make a good Audio Avatar

    ...I do have a fair bit of free time as @CEE TEE can attest to. I'd be up for the task pending a ruling from the high council.

    I didn't know Ravi was on this, so sorry guys. Shipping a carton of toys to @Vansen.

    Just remind me when you need money. And don't ask me what to do. Just invent stuff. I don't micro manage. I can't. Also, feel free to represent yourself as an SBAF ambassador to vendors to get free gear, I mean loaners for yourself. You wouldn't be abusing your position doing so, as long as the rest of us got to hear said gear and crap on it.

    We don't need a mediator between worlds. We need a gear master. We're our own little corner of the internet and we have a lot of cross pollination already. Van was selected because he's an awesome dude: smart, organized and trustworthy. Plus, some of us have known him for a while and the endorsement from @CEE TEE goes a long way.

    You are officially anointed Gear Master 2.0 and have been promoted to staff :)

    Not to mention, @Vansen might get the silent ban over there once they figure out....

    Congratulation @Vansen !

    If you need a back up, I'm happy to do it too. I may be the only person on the board with a government clearance, so I'm moderately trustworthy :)

    The government is against the people. Always. This does not speak well of you!

    Given our current government, I'd be hard pressed to disagree. Sad!

    No politics intended.
    Was just trying to make an American stereotype joke.
    I will now go back to my regular non-showering French activity.
