This year I have the dubious honor of trying to locate storage for quite a
bit of stuff that Meridies would like to leave on or near site for use
each year at Pennsic.  If anyone with information regarding storage on or
near site would be kind enough to contact me I would appreciate it
greatly.  If someone currently has space available for storage that they
would be willing to sublet I'd be interested as well.  Thanks for any and
all information.

    Steiner here Greeting the Rialto!

        Rhiannon of the Isle asked about storage for equipment on or
    near the site of the Great P. I have for the past few years had a
    trailer on site that is loaded with all of the lumber needed to
    rebuild our platforms each year. We are now up to 2 trailers that
    cost a mere 96$ a year apiece per year. The Coopers insist that
    any storage on site be on movable trailers which is a bit of a
    hassle, but they are extremely courteous and quick about delivering
    the trailer to our site when we are ready for it. Yep, door to door
    delivery comes *with* the per year charge, something you won't get
    from a storage company! In fact I doubt you'll find a rental fee
    cheaper than that either, if you do, I'd sure like to know! FWIW,
    you should be able to pick up a used boat trailer fairly cheaply, I
    got our first one for 125$ and then built a wooden deck onto it. The
    whole thing then gets tarped over. I'd hesitate to reccomend blue
    tarps as they degrade from the constant sunlight over the years time.
    Contact the Coopers in the store about trailer storage, they are
    quite helpfull about this sort of thing, heck they are helpfull about
    most everything! Hope this helps.

my lord and i have just come across a mini storage company near
cooper's lake.  they are called 'Portersville Self-Storage'.  They are
located at 122 Fisher Road.  Fisher Road is off of Currie Road.  When
you're approaching cooper's lake  from 422 to Currie Road, there is a
road to the left just before the one lane bridge, that is Fisher Road.
i spoke with one of the owners this morning his name is Mike Hall.
these are brand new storage facilities that were just opened this
spring.  their number is (412) 368-8821.  they also rent u-hauls!  he
said you can drop off your truck there,  and arrange for your truck
home to be picked up there.    

what they have:
5 X 10 =>   $32.00 per month

10 X 10 => $47.00 per month

10 X 15 => $59.00 per month

10 X 20 => $65.00 per month

10 X 30 => $85.00 per month

they accept visa, M/C, discover and all personal cheques; even out of
state cheques.  a security deposit of 1months rent is required.  if
you pay for the entire year in advance he gives a 10% discount on the
rent.  they are open 7 days a week, and their office hours are:

Mon - Fri  =>  8am - 6pm

Sat           => 9am - 5pm

Sun          => 1pm - 5pm

the storage areas are dry, but like any storage company they recommend
you use pallets, and he is trying to work out a deal with a pallet
company so he will have them available there.    


he really wants to work with people from the SCA.  he said that he
advertised at war practice, and he has sent fliers to all the
merchants who were listed in the Pennsic book last year.  anyone who
stores with him in 1996 will have the option of using his FREE truck
and driver to move their belongings from his storage area to their
campsite.  they are NOT providing movers, just a driver and a truck.
you must do your own moving.  he said he is willing to use as many
trucks and men as needed, and he will move people 24 hours a day if he
has to.  if you have been looking for storage in that area like we
have please give him a call.  he is very friendly, and will work with

hope this has helped someone.
yours in service,

<the end>
