I suspect there will be a whole lot of used gear available from the salvage and consignment shops in the Northeast in the near future.

Sad...
Those're some amazing numbers.

I've also been wondering where all that gear will end up, hopefully not in landfills. But the only used gear shop I know of in the Northeast is Bacon's in Annapolis.
