I haven't been able to lay down the cash for bumper plates yet, but in the meantime I scored a major deal:

375LBS(!) of rubber-coated Body Solid brand olympic plates -- virtually unused -- for $75 on craigslist.

Moral of the story: Be patient and persistent enough on Craigslist, and you can get darn near anything at a killer price. :-)

Bryan - that was your Kharmic reward for the killer deal I got from you for the dumbbell racks. Good shopping.

Thanks Eugene! I'm glad the racks worked out well for you. Don't rack your balls with them, though. (Sorry, that should have gone in that other ball-oriented thread...) =)

It was almost karmic. I beat out five other guys bidding on the weights. Did my first set of squats at home a few days ago.

I admit that in some ways I missed the social aspect and glitz of globo-gym. But all in all, it felt...liberating. My home gym is finally near enough to completion that I can probably send globo-gym packing next year. :-)
