There are things like this that are made out of plastic that may work well for you Miss Fishy.
I have seen them in a local store here on clearance, and will check again on price. They appear light enough to carry with you. The photo looks like heavy rubber, but the one I'm thinking is plastic.

If you cant find that Shambala I have some old conveyor belt rubber that I can cut into manageable pieces and add some bolts or screws for traction.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

There is a retail store locally that has them. I will look tomorrow, and if they are reasonable enough, I'll buy them and gift them to our dear fishy. They are yellow plastic, but must be at least strong enough to handle a car driving on it.
If the surface is anything like 2008, then we are screwed.

I'm from Apok. I'm so fucking doomed.


(Thank you every one. It's really hard to be gracious but your generosity touches my heart.)

Sooooo, I went to the store and picked up a pair of these traction plates. I will be bringing them to the playa and gift them to Miss Fishy instead of the cheap plastic whistle from Oriental Trading that I was going to give her! :shock:

Yes, thank you Sham, and everyone else who participated in thinking this up. It really touches my crusty, old, two-chambered heart.
