    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    You might see about buying a small hauling trailer like U-Haul uses, these are often available for cheap. A tall stool will allow you a comfortable work area and there is plenty of room for gear. You could even sleep in it as needed on road-trips, I've seen them used for this a number of times.

    GO for a 79 or 80 4WD if you can get them. Easy as hell to repair, can't be killed. I had one all the way through college and beyond.

    Fond memories in that truck.

    Gustavo,

    You can get one with the standard automatic, without warning, acceleration package for real cheap these days.

    Gustavo,

    I own a '91 Landcruiser with 250k+ miles on it and it's the most reliable vehicle I have owned, contrary to what some people have remarked. I purchased it after I had a little Toyota pickup (with the infamous 22RE, the year before it was branded Tacoma) and that truck was bomb-proof. I got that little truck from my sister who actually drove it a whole year with no oil registering at all on the dipstick, and it did not affect it all whatsoever.
    Back to the Landcruiser; I can tell you that MINE can go literally anywhere, and not get stuck, and I do just that with it... though it does also have a 3" Old Man Emu lift kit and lockers. This truck is more than large enough for any venture you could pursue with it, and in fact I remove the 2nd, and 3rd row seating and have a plywood flatbed I created which perfectly fits a full sized air mattress, and a gear stow space underneath. Two caveats with this setup though: 1. It will not be as cheap as the little Toyota, though Ive seen some that can be had in a similar year, in the 3-5k price range. 2. It is a gas hog. It has a standard inline 6, but this engine is huge, and because of the full time 4WD, it is not fuel friendly. Hwy mileage is actually not the worst (10-15MPG I would guess), but if you spend the day driving around a city, you can literally watch your fuel gauge meter descend.

    Other than those 2 caveats, I highly recommend it. I've had to put in a new radiator since I've personally owned it (going on 6 years). That was a replacement to the original. The best part about this truck is I just get in, turn the key and go.

    Good luck,
    Cornelius
