My reasons at the time:
- All equipment was pretty much at its minimum value-wise
- It could still be priced relatively highly for tax deduction reasons
- I was very space constrained, and not using it at the time
- I'd just gotten married (see "Spousal unit", in a later post)

None of them good enough in hindsight for the value that equipment would 
have now, either to me or others.

Damn - too bad I pawned that old Colt Paterson - I bet it would be worth 
something by now...
