A hearty thanks to Randy K7AGE and Ken KK4EIR for their comments on AmateurRadio.com regarding my shack clean up. Each of them mentioned how the metal folding chair that I use must be uncomfortable.
Indeed, they nailed it right on the head. This thing (on which I am now sitting) is very uncomfortable. And if I sit too long, my lower back and hips start to complain. So for long operating and building stints, I have to get up and move around, or I will pay for it later.But until they brought that to my attention, I just lived with it and didn't give it too much thought.
So I went to the Staples.com site and looked at office chairs, and I found this one.
It was available at a very decent price (on special). I know it's not a super cushy leather job like a Fortune 500 Company CEO would use; but I can't afford one of those. This is a budget office chair, and I'm on a budget - I guess it's a match made in Heaven.
I placed an order and am having it delivered to the local Staples here in South Plainfield. It should be available for pickup on Monday. So I guess I'll just have to tough it out for a few days more.
I put a piece of remnant carpet down where the chair will be so that the casters don't get all mucked up from the concrete floor. This is turning out better than I thought and I am really starting to enjoy coming down here a lot more than I had before - and I've always enjoyed my shack a lot, even when it was a pig sty.
