Rent a c-130 just for fun
Start a build log and post a lot of pictures along the way.Cheapest enclosed transport I could find was $1,500. Ultimately I decided to fly in with a buddy and co-drive it back. 25 hours of road time and ultimately it'll probably end up being close to the same price, but I'll get to hang out in Moab for a few days and one way or another I'll have a story to tell when it's done. Wish us luck.
Planning on it. I've got a friend who's encouraging us to vlog the trip so he can live vicariously. First 6 hours are going to be absolutely killer. Then it gets flat for a looooong time.Start a build log and post a lot of pictures along the way.
A car cover and a cargo box should be delivered to Ben's house before we arrive. Hoping that we can figure out a relatively easy way to get the cargo box mounted up top. We're definitely depending on it. I'm thinking we can get away with buying some 1-3/4" U bolts and wrapping the bars with butyl rubber (i.e. old bike tubes) to prevent damaging the paint, drill some new holes and off we go.Bring a tarp just in case it rains and you need to pull over and cover up!
