A pick up or van is a MUST for our game, especially if you have a collection of pole arms.  I can easily fill the back of a covered Ford Ranger with gear, and have built a set of shelves to double my carry space.  If you do get a pick up, get a camper shell or cap, and if long weapons are part of your collection, be sure the truck has a sliding window on the back of the cab.
  As for 4*4, unless you do a lot of off roading, it's not really worth the extra expense.

  As many of you know, I will be relocating to Ansteorra later this month. As part 
of my relocation I am re-evaluating all of our current vehicles. One possible 
variation is to obtain a pickup truck specific for use to go to and from camping 
events as there seems to be many more opportunities in Ansteorra than in the 
East to go camping. However, I am unsure if I should get a 4x4 option on the truck.

In the East it's a no brainer, of course I get it, but for your environment I am 
a total novice. Are there camping event sites in the winter months where the 
weather gets things so muddy that a 4x4 is highly advised? I know I don't want 
my current AWD vehicles and hope to liquidate them up here where they are likely 
to have better resale values. But would appreciate advice on conditions in 

Thanks in advance,
