      Sounds good stuff, but having to haul the equipment 1/4 mile each way, up
      hill, pouring rain-sleet-snow, rabid squirrels, and one river of fire....
      That might be a little heavy.. ;}

      Our group is fortunate to have a section of a city park to shoot in but we
      cannot set up permanent shelters, and having a stream running around the
      place we shoot, can't really drive up and unload either. I know, I just
      gotta be difficult!

      All wonderful Ideas though!
