looking for a ride

My GF and I are looking for a ride to and from the playa. We can help drive and chip in for gas. We have couple bins each of gear, random non-binned stuff like a tent and stove and chairs, 2 bikes, and a bike rack if needed. We'd like to get down there Saturday or Sunday the 25th or 26th and leave on Tuesday the 4th.

EDIT: coming from Portland, Oregon

decorating a rented tips?

So I did some research, made about ten calls, and can't find anything/one/where in the San Jose, CA area that rents trailers for to lug to The Man. One place rented what I needed, but didn't let the equipment out of Santa Clara County. I could lie, but if I were involved in an incident, traffic accident or whatever, that could be problematic at a later date...and besides, I don't like to have the stress of keeping half truths straight.

SO, all that having been said, we are seemingly pretty much stuck with renting a Uhaul trailer. We're going in an Isuzu Rodeo and want to pull the next to biggest size. They were all ready to give us the biggest size and I had to ask several times what the safety recommendation was...they didn't even know...hmmmm, trepidation...!

But anyways, this rented Uhaul will need some sort of something to denote it's destiny for the week, and my question is this: how do you attach signage to the sides? what materials do you use? how to secure it? I was thinking just butcher paper and tape wouldn't be enough....correct me if that's wrong.

What do any of you plan to use to decorate trucks or enclosed trailers?? How do you plan to execute your vision?
