Storage Unit Alternative

Posted on Apr 29 2017 - 5:52pm

The Troop pays for a storage unit at Brea U-Store on Lambert Ave. to store our camping gear such as tents, stoves, etc. The monthly cost to rent this unit is quite high and recently increased from $180/moth to $190/month. The Troop is looking for a more affordable alternative, either in a commercial facility or at someone's home. The site has to be accessible in the evenings for gear pulls. If you have an idea on an alternative, please see Mr. Long or Mr. Matthews.
