Whatís in your basement?

I can tell you, Iím an over-packer, preparer, and project scrap hoarder. Today we did some spring cleaning and purging of the basement stuff and started by pulling everything out.

Thought Iíd make a video of the insanity that is my basement hatch.

You should have had a scale handy to weigh it all as you took it out

It tried really hard to part with the super heavy wooden shelf but just couldnít bear it! I ended up putting it back in.

I had to laugh when I literally discovered the cast iron griddle. I used to LOVE that thing when we camped and I would cook on it over a fire.

Thanks for sharing. I smiled/chuckled all the way through the video.

Like many campers, half the tools in my basement are there in case I have the opportunity to help a fellow camper.

My wife might say that you and I are related!

I have been wondering what everyone carries in there.
