I have converted my brothers bathroom(still live at home bro is married) into my storage room. I got a shower rod put it in the shower now hang all my gear from it. Keep tanks in the back of the shower and regs in reg bags.

Now how about you?

Good idea, I transport in a couple heavy rubbermaid buckets that double as rinse buckets. dry in the garage.

We turned a closet into gear storage, can now hang everything that should be hung.

I did the same thing with my closet! Have to hang my clothes in the wife's. I let all my gear dry in the garage on a couple of rolling racks from target.

For this summer, I put up a heavy clothes rod attached to the built-in garage shelving. All neoprene gets hung on there (boots/gloves/hoods on the special hangers). BC's also get hung over it, with the dump hoses at the lowest point to facilitate draining any water out. Weights and tanks usually stay in the truck.

Once hung dry, my things are packed up and stay in Pelican all ready for next dive.

my stuff is all in a paintball gear bag (nxe, from when i was sponsored... so FREE) with the exception of my Trans-plate, and regs... the transplate is just on the floor of the guest room, as well as tanks and that gear bag.

Anything wet hangs in the tub until dry. Everything goes into the spare bedroom and spare bedroom closet. Wetsuits and bcs hang up, regs go into reg bags and accessories get chucked on the bed or into the mesh boat bag. Very organized. :smiley2:

all my stuff is on the floor of the office at my BF's house... all rinsed and dried out side, and just kind of thrown on the floor along the wall.

My stuff goes from me, to the Rubbermaid tub, to the bathtub, to the Rubbermaid tub, to the rack on my back porch, to the Rubbermaid tub, and the tub goes in the closet. Except my BC, which hangs in the closet. Did I mention I have a rubbermaid tub?

Anything wet hangs in the tub in the spare bedroom/office bathroom until dry (after cleaning, pretty much everything is wet!). Then everything gets packed back up ready to go out again. Tanks generally spread out between the living room, the office, the back of my car and the shop getting filled. I try not to have them all in one place at one time, else the wife will notice how many of the darn things I have!

Everything is stored in a cbinet in the garage. When I'm ready to go everthing is in one spot.

Stored in the guest bedroom, much to my wife's chagrin. She keeps theatening to throw the gear in the garage. I usually reply with "but darling, if it's damaged out there, the damage may not be discovered until I'm 60 feet underwater. Then, I'll die. You won't have a funeral, because they'll not find the body." She then gives me The Look and walks away.

One day, I won't dodge the bullet...

Hey CompuDude, I just noted your Barracuda-ness. Well done, sir.

I use a spare bedroom/home office closet as a scuba room as well.

"the look" *shudder*

Yeah.

And thanks... I didn't even notice until you pointed it out! I feel strangely powerful all of a sudden... and oddly attracted to shiny objects!

I keep my stuff in a big trash can filled with water or on a hanger dying or in a large pelican case.

When I get home, everything goes in the rinse tank and then I don't worry about it for a day or so. It takes about 24 hours to dry completely and then I pack it up to go diving again.

I have some stuff that sees limited use, like my thin 3mm wetsuit, old fins, extra weights and so on. It's in wheeled rubbermaid storage boxes.
