As some of you already know, I'm moving overseas in the next few months. I'll be living abroad in Central/South America for at least the next 3-4 years and possibly longer. I'll have a lot of flexibility with where I live as long as I stay in US friendly timezones, so I expect to make a few moves to different cities over the course of those years. Honestly, giving up my HiFi was far and away the most difficult part of the decision, but one I'm ok with. Selling my records, on the other hand, is even harder. I have close to 10,000 LP's and just don't know if I can bring myself to part with them. That said, if I keep them in storage all those years I incur some significant storage expenses and will still ultimately have to do something with them. Really wishing I'd been a HiRez audio convert instead of vinyl now! I'm thinking of trying to pare my collection down to my favorite 500-1000 records and having them shipped wherever I end up. Obviously this presents additional challenges when/if I move again. I also may take my turntable, though I'm a bit worried about having such an expensive player in countries where that costs as much as many houses. That said, anyone ever do this? What kind of costs am I looking at to ship 1,000 records?
