    Show me your box.

    In light of my experience getting trapped in my own garage, I realized how much time I spend in there. For a skier, a garage is like an inner sanctuary. It is where I store all my gear, where I tune my gear, where I tune friends gear, and where we drink alot of beer. I love my garage. It's like a club house. Here is mine, show me yours...

    Here is the overview:


    East wall; bike and thule box, skis and surfboard hanging up, flyfishing gear stored here, boxes of more random crap...


    My work corner; I have a temporary work bench (engine stand ). Plan on making a better work bench soon.


    Close-up of the work bench area and fine mountain-inspired decor.


    My prized Fat Tire light sign. Stole it from the bar I worked at once fair-and-square. It was hot too (literally!). It burned a couple holes in my old goretex shell when I wrapped it up to get it out the door...


    This place is complete with tunes and a tv/vcr combo (not shown - let a friend borrow it 'till she moves) for watching vids. Lots of fold-out seating (folding camp chairs from Kmart) for the party peoples. We usually hot box the place the night before a trip. With ski wax fumes, duh!

    I love my garage. I need a name for it, though. Any suggestions?

    Nothing pains me more than to say than I am without a garage. As someone with bikes, skis, cars, and the desire and tools to work on all of them, having no garage sucks major ass.

    Remember that ad for motor oil, where the guy had this little one story rancher, with an attached garage that towered over the house? That's what I need.

    My garage.



    And 1/4 of my basement, where I store shit like skis, backpacks, climbing gear, and, occasionally, my dog, but where I also keep my running shoes.

    I can't wait to have a garage...in the meantime my bike sits next to my bed in my tiny ass studio. The skis are in my closet along with random assortment of climbing and biking gear. Helmets and camping gera, ski boots all in this little cupboard right next to my door. But there is something to be said for waking up every morning to face reality and my bike and skis are within view.

    Shame on you for treating your skis like some unwanted squatters out in the garage.My main pairs are in the living room where I can say hi to them daily.We have lunch together,listen to tunes,watch movies & discuss how hot my date looks while she's in the bathroom.

    I'd never disrespect them by letting them languish in a hot,poorly ventilated, dusty garage with the likes of the lawn mower for company.
    Calmer than you dude

    Natty will win this thread. No question.

    Although, if power tools and scrap materials are considered cool then I might get an honorable mention.

    Wait 'til you're married. That shit don't fly no more.

    I do have an antique pair on my wall.... that's as close as I can get.

    With your additions, my garage will be in the running. Who has 3 chainsaws besides me?

    pardon my mess...

    generalized multisport gear storage, mostly hunting crap in the yellow closet, decoys/hunting crap down low, camping/skiing up high




    fishing stuff, freezer (packed full right now) and painting supplies in the far yellow closet


    Workbench:

    the wooden blocks on the back wall are my tuning blocks and get screwed to the benchtop


    Official Beverage:


    edit- I have added a vice to the bench since these were taken.

    Umm, I'm married. That's why we decided that the garage is "my special place". She does let me hang tasteful framed posters and pictures of the Tetons and Snowy Range in the living room though.

    Looks quite a bit different boys. AG's may have it up on him now. MAYBE.

    I want to see Str8's garage up here. I think he wins.

    I even have my old dorm carpet down on my side of the garage. MY SIDE, that is right.

    I actually didn't intend this to be a contest, but hey! Why not?

    I just want to see ideas for improvement...

    The only thing mine needs is some kind of toilet system. I think my neighbors are getting tired of me opening the door and going around the side to pee.

    easy one:

    buy gallon of milk jug
    dump milk out
    buy appropriate length of similarly sized radiator hose (bigger better than smaller)
    " " size radiator clamp

    cut the bottom of the jug off to form a urinal, clamp on hose, cut hole in wall and screw the urinal onto the wall.

    If I can get my damn camera working I may have a competitive entry in the 'too many god damn toys' category. Can't really compete in the skiing only side though.

    You know - I thought about something like that. I have an old beer bong that even has an on/off vlave in it. Just stick it in the corner, and I can shut the valve when not in use to help keep the cold air from coming it (walls are not insulated, I'm on the widy side, and I live in Laramie, Wyoming. It does get rather cold in there in January, so I need all the help I can with keeping what little heat I have in there. I have a little space heater, and I have my "winter shop apron"; an old TNF down jacket that has duct tape reinfocements of the front (leaned too close to the iron a couple times).

    WOOHOO! WEEKEND PROJECT IN THE WORKS!
