    Wow. That is awesome looking!

    Forgive me, I assumed by your post you had an over abundance of stuff... You have lots of room for activities in that room. We broke down and got a storage unit for our camping gear after our tent got ruined in the shed outside and we don't have enough space inside, no garage. It is easy to forget stuff in there...

    Problem with storage units, for me, is that you have to pay a monthly fee. Time passes far more quickly than I tend to plan for. So somewhere in the future, you realize that all the value of your stored goods has evaporated and you are now paying to store worthless items. That is the purely financial take on storage units.

    IMHO, set the best of the best aside (or sell) and press on with your liquidation as you have been doing. Either way, it makes for a great thread!

    And that organized. I can't let my wife see this picture of what a gear room can look like. :wink:

    Yes, I know it is a garage. I didn't think people in Florida park their cars in the garage like we do up here. :confused: So it is just another room.

    Belated reply To OP:
    @Ana : On the bright side, since you do know what you are tired off AND know what to do about it, you are way ahead of many of us! :wink:

    @Luis H - vehicles haven't been in the garage for 18 years...

    Like I said, I'm jealous of the space (as shown before) - this is maybe 75% of it, and the compressor is not here in this picture...

    And work bench/tools/parts/hardware is elsewhere too....

    bottom two shelves in the lower right of this picture is the only non-scuba stuff... and likely moved elsewhere to accommodate..

    Yeah, then you pay $100 a month to store crap that is worth $100.

    That's only if it's crap....

    If you have good stuff it's a much different equation...
