Maybe try shipping on a greybus or amtrain to reno and pick it up there. Just an Idea, I don't know if its a good one.

Might be more of a problem/cost for "oversized".

Check the rideshares yet for cargo space?

Odd. No bears in the dump. Oh well, lets go across the road & pick blueberries.

Close to 100 pounds? Or close to 1,000 pounds?

I have a 24' dome, and it weighs in around 900 pounds, so if it is 100 pounds, that must be a eensy dome :D
