I'll go first. I don't remember the last time I've been up there. I don't remember what's up there.

You go next.

Was in mine today, but mine is accessed through a door in an upstairs closet. No climbing necessary. Christmas stuff and old toys in mine.

Don't have one and at this point, I have my belongings consolidated to the point where they can all fit in the back of my truck. I want to keep it that way for as long as possible.

Smart man. I'd roll like that for sure if I wasn't married.

2004 was the last time I was up there. The only thing up there is decking and insulation. I won't keep things in the attic anymore. There are 2 other attics at some properties I need to get a friend to go up and look in. I haven't been up there and one was owned by Phil Burleson, Jack Ruby's attorney. I wonder if anything of importance is up there. nidea

I'm a big guy and don't feel comfortable going up there. Last I remember there's Christmas decorations and my youngest daughter's things from childhood.

I think that's about what I have up there, plus some leftover tile from when we built our house. We also had one AC condenser unit replaced and just left the old one up there. We had a TV antenna that we just left up there.

It's decked. Go up every month and replace ac filter. Then grab stuff for Christmas and Halloween during that season.

Totally empty. After rebuilding from a substantial fire caused by lightning in May 2013 (moved back in August 2014) I have put nothing up there. Otherwise it would normally be like Superduty's...

A whole bunch of stuff. My wife put 99% of it up there.

I have two, one in the garage and one accessed from upstairs. Christmas/holiday stuff makes up most of it, old keepsakes like high school yearbooks and letter jacket, hand-me-down clothes for the boys, boxes from the last move and for the next one, whenever that will be. My bow is up there along with some hunting clothes, coveralls, etc. I keep spare AC filters and extra tile in my upstairs attic.

Pretty much it....I try and stay as minimal as possible.

I have one working, and the old one that was replaced. I really liked the guys who were replacing the old so I cut them a break. I would have had to come back the following day with a cutting torch or something.

I have two attics and have been in each of them this month. They are laden with junk.

Once the weather starts getting warmer, I head up there to pour a little Chlorox in the plastic drain pipes for the air conditioning units. These are the drain pipes for the primary pans that catch and drain condensation from the cooling coils. Because they only carry a small amount of water, they can be prone to "crud up" and cause the water to overflow the primary pan and begin filling the secondary or backup pan. And when that happens, you'll begin to see water dripping out of that small pipe under the eaves of your roof, given your units are setup correctly with a secondary pan and outside drain pipe. I put in special upside down T sections in the pipes for the specific purpose of being able to add a little Chlorox every Spring to help keep the pipes clean.

In worst cases, when the pipes for the primary pans clog or fail, you find water damage in your home. And because it's such a small amount of water that collects over time, the damage is done before you detect the problem.

That happened with my older unit but I've never had a problem with my newer unit. It seems as if improvements have been made in that area.
