I wanted to get a hitch mount board rack and was talked out of it at the rack store. his point? Have you ever seen how dirty the rear of your vehicle is after driving in the rain let alone up a mountain? Thats what your board will look like when you get to the hill and home again. Just a thought.......

You make a very good point sir... I will have to ponder this further.

I agree but it will wash right off after the 1st few runs. I think the road junk would be minimal and only on days it's snowing.

I thought about making/buying a hitch rack since a have a big one for the bikes but yeah, they would get so dirty and we're not talking water and a bit of dirt. More like road sand and salt and little rocks and making everything a big mess. I have an Expedition so I can carry 5 plus all the stuff in the back anyways, but if you can, I would suggest a cargo box (or maybe those big rolls of plastic wrap and just wrap it up beforehand but it won't stop stone chips).

Problem is, Shames is my local. It takes me just about an hour to get there and it's just graded dirt, snow (no paving) for the last 13 kilometers. I'm thinking all the sand and salt between here and there also makes for some shitty dirty gear. Even worse, it will be like that when you get home too. Then you have to go to the car wash and hose it all down before wiping it all off (while frozen) and stow it for the next trip.

I'm thinking this may sucketh a bit to mucheth.

Maybe I need a roof rack or at least a closed cargo box for the hitch? Hmmm...
