How about a half track?
#1
It will get you where you want to go.
https://vancouver.craigslist.org/nvn/cto...73938.html
OT-810 halftrack. Czech produced post war copy of the famous German WW2 SdKFz 251 halftrack. Ex-Czech Army service. Veteran of military TV and film productions. Fully operational. Mounts MG34 or MG42 machine guns front and rear (not included). Actually bullet proof. Air cooled diesel, manual transmission. Seats 10. Anyone can buy a Lamborghini or Ferrari. Definitely one of a kind for the person that has everything. $500 non-refundable deposit for test run to be applied to price if purchased(too many people just want to play with it). For the serious collector. This vehicle is not a controlled good and no special permits are required. The ultimate airsoft accessory. Interesting partial trades considered. Price in USD

I had a snocat that seated 5 with cargo area on top & rear, 36" tracks would go anywhere. The pons had drifted over with snow & I fell in, water pouring in & at a pretty sharp downward angle but put her in reverse & she walked right out. Fun toy for a whole lot less.

That would be a good decoration in YARC Camp or YARC bar

But you would probably have some trouble getting it there -- every cop on the road would be pulling you over to look at it and get the guided tour.

I've had that happen also & used to buy small plane projects, unfinished kits, etc to pay for my flying, I always flew antiques. Coming home from Missouri I was pulled over 3 times just because the officer wanted to see what I was hauling. I was loading it when the space shuttle exploded. Just sold the hotrod amfib floatplane project I was building when I broke my back & 12 antique Lycoming O-145 spare engines I collected & never needed a single part with 2 planes that I flew about 800 hours total in. I had the sister ship to the one Buddy Holly died in, a 1st year 1947 Beechcraft Bonanza Vtail 35, about 20 serial #s away from the one he died in. Easiest plane I've ever flown. I'm down to a powered parachute with 37 actual hours & may sell that. I had planned to take it on the road with me.

Sorry I just saw this & yes you can learn in 1/2 a day. The one I have has full suspention, electric start & 37 actual hrs run time. It's an ultralight so no license needed. Fit's in a small space to haul or store. I hate to part with it but my mobility is failing fast. I also have ski's for it. With the chute not deployed you have a 52HP go cart that goes very fast, you could say it flys Smile

As far as half tracks go that wouid be easy, just have an outer wheel of some king to bolt on the rear wheel to get it out beyond the fender, make a set of tracks with industrial belting & have a set on idler wheels behind the vehicle & a way to tighten them. They did it 80 years ago on Ford tractors https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hj70sGOlEmg
