I agree with their premise that to be useful you need transportable clocks. I’m not quite sure
that something the size (and weight) of a pickup truck is really transportable. Yes one can 
move it around (unlike a small mountain)  …. Transporting something like that from here to 
Europe and back *would* make the charges FedEx comes up with on a  40Kg box look 
cheap though :)
