Yes, it's extremely active. We've given away tons of stuff over the years. I still check occasionally just for curiousity. There are some silly items but some really great, useful items as well. Quick turnover & high attendance.

So you have to take a test?
My dh is born and bred Alaskan and is going up to clean out his grandparents house this June. His grandparents have lived in the same house since the early 50's and grandma was a horder. They are both off to the Pioneer home now and it's his job to organize and clean out the house. He only has a week so this would have been a great option but if he has to take a test and get accepted than no way. Easier to get the ARC come and get it all.
My MIL is the remaining kid and wants pretty much nothing to do with it.
Yeah, I do and it does.
GE, large capacity.
I have a matching washer too, that one does need a timer ($150 part!)
We just upgraded instead of fixing it.
sure thing. Just email me or whatever for directions.
they have been outside but under the carport. they are dusty but never wet.
I was beginning to think I was the only person denied on the Anchorage Freecycle! The moderator must have been on her highest defenses, because she told me (after I failed and questioned the validity of the test) that her elementary school aged-son got 100%...yikes.
