We have a lot of MUPs in our area, and I frequently see a lot of dead fall that would make perfectly good firewood. I'm tempted to pick up one of those big utility trikes, throw the chainsaw in (would certainly pick times when the trails are slow/deserted), and grab MUP-side firewood.
I often see those Schwinn cargo trikes on Craigslist for $200-ish. Would that be an OK choice for this use?
Obviously as a scrounger/scavenger, I'd prefer to stay away from hyperexpensive solutions.
Here's one fairly recent and a typical example of what I see. Some appear newer, and/or have a larger cargo basket. This basket seems a bit small.
The other option would be putting a utility trailer on a bike I already have, but neither one of my two is really ideal for this - one is a cross/randonneur type road bike, and the other is a TT/Tri bike. A MTB/fat bike is in my future, but probably not very soon.
