Being serious for a minute here, sorry, been thinking about getting a quad bike to cart my gear on (8x10 now and an 12x20 one day), anybody had any experiance with using one to cart gear about on. Not enough room at home for the mule train.
Got the idea from a diver I meet who uses one to get to remote beach diving locations.
Anyone got any suggestions?

David, is a quad bike what we call a 4-wheeler here in Kansas? Not something that's pedal-powered right?
If so, 4-wheelers (quad bikes) are great. They are far easier on the terrrain than a regular vehicle is. They can go anywhere a four-wheel drive pickup can reasonably go and don't get stuck as easy. If it does get stuck, its a lot easier for one person to push it out than is a full-size pickup. Inexpensive to maintain. Plenty of room in the box for the gear with the larger models. May want to tie your gear down to keep it from bouncing out.
Only drawback is one usually still has to have a pickup or trailer to get the 4-wheeler out near the location. None of them are really street legal that I know of. Purely intended for off-road use, geared low, not real fast but a lot faster than walking.
These days, they are preferred over the pickups for going out to work the livestock. (Including mules!)
Good ideas David. Don’t know what’s available in NZ but Honda and Kawasaki are two of the largest sellers here in the USA. In fact, our local Honda dealer sells more 4-wheelers than regular two-wheelers. Ready made trailers for them are plentiful here too.
