    Many years ago, I watched my boss clean out a storage closet and throw a perfectly good high-impact flight case into the dumpster. I immediately retrieved it and turned it into a case for my GK head.

    I worked at a prosthetic fabrication shop, so I had access to all types of of industrial sewing machines and cutting tools. I had a couple of clean moving blankets on hand, so I created a completely durable, form fitting cushion, which also doubles as cord and duct tape storage.

    Over the years, it has become a scrapbook of my travels.

    Big ups for the up-cycle, Bolo. And the Exit stickers.

    Thank you! Is Exit still around? I used to live pretty close to that place from around 1993-1998. Haven't been back in over 10 years.

    Yes it is.
    I don't get out much anymore but have fond memories of both locations.
