I should have said playing radio in the car doesn't appeal to me, but setting up an HF operation in the middle of nowhere and talking to the world is very appealing.

I think it would be really cool to setup a portable station on some high, rocky point around Moab and talk to somebody on the other side of the world. But the high spots we wheel around in Moab are no place to string a dipole. My bet would be on some sort of vertical antenna (either truck mounted or disassembled and tied to the roof rack for assembly later) with a bunch of radials strung along the ground.
