    base camps and locations

    Good evening all, I know a lot of you hardened miners out there live on your claims when you are mining them. Being an out of state hack that comes into your borders and mines your minerals and leaves. I see some of the more experienced propectors either live within a few hundred miles ( just a guess ) or you live out of storage locker,( just kidding). I sorry but I have some equipment stored at my wife's cousin's house in phoenix and really just have hand tools stored there but can't really store what I really want to use in the furture. Do the majority of you rent storage lockers for your equipment and do you use all terrain vehicles stored elsewhere. I guess I need some guidiance on how to become more involved without moving out there yet.

    Once you get going, you will have a garage full of just mining equipment before you know it.
    I've got gear in my house, truck, camper and a full 40' shipping container!

    My best advice is to figure out your primary and most important tools and focus on just those until your discovery can justify bigger n better equipment.

    You can carry quite a bit in your vehicle and or trailer. Maybe get yourself and enclose prospecting trailer that you haul around with you. Could double as a bunkhouse too.

    My equipment lives at my house, my parents house, my truck, my workshop and some of it resides at one of the claims. I live about 2 hours from my main diggings.

    How i did mining 10+ hrs away was packed everything in truck n trailer, stay for 3 weeks and rented out a single car garage at the local storage yard. Enough to hold the trailer n equipment. Would go home for a week to resupply. The diesel and maintenance on trailer/truck outweighted the cost of storage for me.

    All my equipment will fit in my Subaru with my dog. She likes to step on my riffles every so often to make sure they are working right.
