I only have my little Prius, and that's not going to help.
But I can buy a used pickup or SUV. I now have some space to park such a vehicle.
(So I am thinking this through; bear with me.)
An extra heavy-duty vehicle would come in handy from time to time.
And if it's got a tow package on it, I could rent a trailer from U-Haul of various sizes. Large enough to stash a monkey hut and a foam dome in. Other camp gear would go in the main vehicle.
So I will look at getting a 2nd vehicle this year.


good call Dougly!! and, if you want, remember I have a small trailer you can have, free. 4x4 cargo area, plywood sides. 14" car tires.

Thank you, bro!
But the biggest challenge is in getting LONG THINGS out to the desert, I mean in excess of eight feet: 10-12 feet in length would be good for flagpoles and other impressive erections.

What? Ygmir! I had no thoughts of the sort! Wash your brain out with soap this instant!
