When I lived in a condo, I had to store my astronomy stuff on the upper floor, so I had to take it down to my front door in about ten trips, then take another ten trips to haul it down a 100' hallway to the elevator, load the elevator, unload the elevator and make ten trips across the garage to where my car was (we couldn't park in front of the elevator) to load my car.
Then, the reverse procedure when I got home.
I did that every month for about 13 years until housing values rose high enough I could get into a house.
So I sympathize with the issues of condo living, where astronomy is concerned.
At least I had a flat roof.

That makes me feel better. I only have two flights of steps to go down - one in my house, one down from the porch - and then straight out to the vehicle. Still, it takes at least a half-hour to pack everything, and at least that long to unpack when I get home.

I don't even want to think about the number of little trips walking my gear down to the first floor of my condo and then out to the vehicle. It's best not to think about somethings.
