What Is Your Offsite Storage Solution?

I have a storage array in my basement, and a friend with one as well. We use each other as an offsite location. Sure, it won't cover against a huge hundred mile wide disaster, but then I have far bigger problems.

Ah, that's a clever idea, and seems like it would serve some individuals (i.e., not businesses, but normal people with normal things to back up) well. I think I remember someone else suggesting/using such a method a while back, but had forgotten. This method wouldn't have the kind of reliability that Backblaze or other services would have, but perhaps it's good enough for mortals and it's something I'd definitely consider trying myself, were I to have data I wanted to ensure was backed up offsite ... and friends.
