    Noglider's right I don't think you could get the laundry line that taut. BTW where can I get the wheels and the axle too hold that kind of weight? That would be handy to know.

    You could get a thin piece of plywood the roughly the same size as the pizza box and then bungee them to a rear rack. The plywood will reinforce the box and keep if from collapsing.

    not really practical

    There's no getting around the wind on this one. Even flat it's a little dicey. We get a lot of out of the blue gusts around here so even a calm day is no guarantee that I'll be safe. A person and a...
