    You guys have convinced me. I need to have some sort of table to have next to my camp chair....maybe a big rock.

    Problem with the big rock is that it's never in the right place. And then there's the problem with the rattler that lives under the big rock...

    I did just pick up this table: https://www.amazon.com/Tabletote-Por...computer+table

    I'm going to give it a try inside the clipper when we're crashed on the sofa. It should hold my drink, snack, etc., while I read.

    On a more primitive level square cut sections of log (standing with the flat surface top and bottom) have been used successfully as both stools and tables (need to carry a chainsaw and watch out for pitch/resin though).
    Rocks are usually uncomfortable and round (first beer balances OK but later there is an increasing danger of alcohol abuse/spillage).

    Enjoy!

    (edit); like button stopped working for me...

    Old, well set up, CJ-7, lockers, 4:1 Tcase, gears, 35s, winch... for the far places...
    For "civilized" camping/glamping; 2003 Ford explorer sport, 4wd; MTs and lockers soon.
    Usually hauling a 9x9 dome, a 10x10 (advertised) standing room, or a 12x12 alaknak tent (which one is length of stay dependent).
    Experience along with properly set up 4WD will get you to & through places (on existing, approved 4WD trails) that 4WD, alone, can't get to.

    Look, if you don't want to 'like' people's posts just don't 'like' them. No need to make excuses.
