Not my tent. Mine is the Sierra Designs.

EDIT: The MSR is my dad's. Not all of the stuff is mine (just 2 sleeping bags, 3 backpacks, all the climbing gear).

A good friend of mine lived alone in a 5-bedroom house. He had an ice-climbing room, a rock-climbing room, a backpacking room, a caving room and a skiing room.

Okay, here's my base camp. It's in the basement, everything is on rolling carts for ease of movement and cleaning. There's a lot of cross-over. A lot of climbing hardware is stored with the caving gear. A lot of my climbing clothes are stored with the skiing gear. Behind all of the carts are a bunch of messy shelves stacked with sleeping pads, sleeping bags, etc. The rolling carts really hide the mess. I found that dehumidifier in the basement really keeps everything dry and free of mildew.. I have two more rolling carts in the garage, when I come back from trips I just hang everything to dry in the garage. When the season for that sport is over, everything gets moved to the basement.

Kind of have that problem. Some of my nicer, more expensive gear only gets out when I really need it. Some stuff I refuse to use in summer months, as snow is much easier on the materials than rock. I don't ever take my best backpack of when I can't put it down on snow. I know :oops:

I use my gear too much to waste my time trying to store it :)

I had to put stickers all over it 10 years later because I was too embarrassed by there being no scratches or dings on it. Have you no similar shame?


That Joe Brown is brand new, I converted my old Joe Brown to caving duty (see the old scratched up helmet with the headlamp?). I bought a new Joe Brown helmet for climbing. It's the only helmet that doesn't give me headaches. It has scratches on it, you just don't see them because I've only been climbing with it three times.

And it's not a Joe Brown, they went out of business a long time ago. It's a different company, similar helmet. It's got the modern buckle quick-release chin strap instead of the old dangerous slider chin strap.

Aren't those plastic tubs great - I saw an advertisement for a shelving unit built specifically for storing plastic tubs in the Sky Mall magazine and I got really excited until I looked at the price tag.
