Can't you ask your friend to store stuff there?

If San Diego (which is near the California/Mexico Border) isn't a problem for
you then go for it.  As far as 1200XL computer, I have one no more then four
feet from me collecting dust along with a bunch of other stuff...  Whhereever
you plan to pick it up I could send it there for... say $10 plus any postage
(I know I paid less then $10, not not how much less...)  Need a drive?  I
think I could part with a 1050..

Unfortunately I've only come across one 128DCR in my excursions ($7 without
keyboard, a bargain!) and it isn't for sale at this time.  :P

Post a shopping list and I'll tell you if I have it sitting around or if EBay
is the best route (rarely!)  thrift shops and flea-markets in California are
great for computer collectors.  ;)
