    I started in storage unit auctions here in Florida, but the area here isn't the best, alot of crap units. I found general auctions are better, I make a living buying at auctions and reselling at the flea market, or buying at garage sales, and putting the goods up on the auction block.

    Wow, nice. Sold the bike for pretty cheap eh? I tried my hand at an auction down here in Hawaii, and ended up getting burnt on the deal. I think I ended up losing about $300 or so and paid $600 for the pile of ****. I wish there were more motorcycles/dirtbikes in the locker, as a side business I usually just buy cheap motorcycles, fix it up and flip it. The only bike I ended up getting from my locker was some little kids girly bike which I gave to my neighbor, some rusty chinese made tools (sold it at the swap meet), a flat screen tv (sold to my coworker), and some misc. chairs (still have them). Oh, and some dirty looking clothes stuffed in a bunch of garbage bags.

    but wow, you definitely got a good haul. I think I would need to go back to watching storage wars to even consider going back

    Thats a $50 bill right there!

    Love the show, can't wait to move to the States next year and have some "play" money aside to buy a locker.
