Believe it or not, I actually have space for this thing all set. Its not
going to be turned on very much, admittedly, but the environmentals
should be ok.

Thanks to everyone who offered input or assistance. Since we're doing
this on a budget, I think we're going to rent a Ryder truct. They gave
me a quote for $85.00 a day and $0.20 a mile.

I'll be sure to send out a post-op report. :)

"We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always
that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence
and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We
will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in
our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended
from fearful men -- not from men who feared to write, to speak, to
associate and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular."
-- Edward R. Murrow, March 9, 1954
