    Found this nice folding tailgate table at Wally World for $25. So far I have only living room tested it, but looks like it will work great. It weighs about 25lbs, so should not get blown around if you use it as a helipad I also like that the height is adjustable so it can be kept low. They cone in different colors according to walmart.com, but in my town you will only find them in Husker red. Hope to try it out this weekend.

    Go Big Red!

    Use up server space for pointless replies?

    The OP did not use your money and what he does with his own money is his right. I see little point to berate someone over this.

    @NUfan, you could get some lawn chairs too and sit at the table while you're flying in the field. Seriously.

    My dad and I fly in some wide open spaces and were just thinking about getting some chairs.
