    I just realized that I have to store about 5x5' worth of shit before leaving for basic. I don't want my friends and family snooping through my shit, so storing everything with them is out of the question. Should I go with a public storage unit locally ($30/mo, I'll have a place to store all of my stuff when I visit back home)? Does anyone have any ideas as to where else I could put my belongings?

    Dude, shit.

    If you let me store my shit at your home for like 19 weeks, I'll be happy to return the favor when you leave.

    If the stuff you're going to be storing are things like clothes, furniture, electronics, computer, etc. make sure the storage unit you get is air conditioned or else all your shit will be ruined and get moldy.

    Yeah, I just noticed that they are considered "specialty units" (+$20 I bet). I'm seriously considering dumping all of my electronics off at the pawn shop and donating all of my clothes.

    Get used to putting things in storage when you have to leave.


    So sure...go for it.

    I store all my stuff including my bike in a storage unit when I deploy.
