This is the first year I have run a car since 2002. Those who have known Buffalo Horticulture have always identified its small red dump truck.
Much of the car's justification would of course focus on the quantity of fuel saved and the costly life use of the truck as compared to the car which is bordering on disposable.
But something else is happening with the car. The truck limited what I could carry with me in the cab. A bag or two. But now, I can carry everything I could use during the day -
Seen in the car above I have my DSLR; my "business bag" with files, proposals, invoices, catalogs, 'notebooks' and 'sketchbooks;' another bag carries my computer, a Nikon point & shoot, and a journal. The far side has my large clipboard after finishing a site survery and also a large bag of books and writing materials for scholarly projects.
There's just so much work that I can run together. I don't need to divide it up. It is all completly accessible. I'm never left with 1/2 my work at home - a limitation in process because in the landscape, the city is your studio. Portability is everything.
