we're getting ever-closer to taking our oasis down the MS river later this summer. although i have a way to get my boat from home (las vegas, NV) to the source (lake itasca, MN); the thing i'm lacking is how to get it from the end of the river (new orleans, LA -- more-or-less) back home.
so far i'm considering ...
[list=]leaving it in NO, flying back home and driving my trailer back out.
putting an ad up on craigslist and seeing what might be available.
listing it on one of the shipping bidding sites (e.g. uship).
renting a vehicle to get the boat back home.
digging deeper to find a shipper from LA to NV (my boat was $150 for UPS ground from washington DC to vegas ... that seems crazy cheap ... might've just been a deal associated with the dealer i bought from).[/list]
... but there may well be other ideas i'm over-looking.
roughly speaking, we should be finished sometime around the second week of october.
if anyone has <b>any</b> other idea (or an opinion on anything i've listed here, i'm all ears ... even if they are of the flavor of "well, i guess you <i>could</i> look into this..."
really, the only idea i'm not open to is selling my boat at the end. after everything we will have been through at that point, the last thing i'll want to do is get rid of it.
thanks in advance.
