Now I'm going to give an unabashed plug. My friend Royal Stucky sells portable shooting benches, advertising in the pages of this magazine as "Stucky's Sturdy Shooting Benches". I have had one for some time without using it for more than a spare cleaning table at BPCR Silhouette matches. It served "royally" on this trip. Breaking down in minutes for moving, with the legs going in an ingenuous little holder [leg caddy] complete with handle, it was perfectly convenient to move about on an ATV. An accessory storage box is available for it, which can hold all the paraphernalia, such as a laser rangefinder, binocular, sandbag rest, water bottle or whatever. And then the accessory box is stout enough to use for a seat - even stout enough to withstand my carcass.
It is no exaggeration to say Royal's bench contributed significantly to the success of my trip.
I know this for certain because on the first morning I tried shooting prone from a mat and had to stop and stand up often to work the cramps out of my neck muscles...
