Ive been trying to get a pdp 11 for quite a few years now, I recently found
someone selling a 11/34 with related gear in a couple of racks Here in my
state of florida. I jumped at the chance and bought it, i have not found
anything for sale this close to me before, yet alone in my state.

The plan is to go get it all later this week. It is a 11/34 in a rack with
a bunch of related Rl drives and a couple of big reel to reel tape drives.
Not sure the specifics anymore, after I paid him he took down the ad, and i
did not write down the details. What I want to ask is is there anything i
should look out for, any precautions I can take to make sure this all gets
back in one piece? Especially in relation to the RL drives, ive never dealt
with any of this equipment before and am not sure what to expect.

The plan is to rent a uhaul trailer and go over there in a truck, and to
take everything delicately out of the racks and put it into the trailer,
and to put the empty racks into the truck.

Any advice that could help or prepare me for what i should expect to need
to do once i get there would be much appreciated.
