    Those are slick. I want one.


    Those seem pretty decent of an idea. Wonder what happens to them after the need is up.

    Sadly, I can see a lot of them remaining as permanent homes.

    I think I just found my retirement home. Now I just have to stake out a sweet site under a freeway off ramp.

    That is a great idea. You'd think the UN, USAid and other relief agencies would have a ton of those things stocked and staged.
