HA!! Same thing happened to me one time. I was muddy working in the flower bed; kids loaded drums while I showered. Arrived at gig about 20 minutes after the call. LOLI have a home set that never moves, and a shell bank of seven toms and two bass drums that stay in their bags in the garage, along with various hardware bags for different configurations. I can load right into the car, and be ready to go in five minutes.
It doesn't happen often, but being able to move quickly has come in handy more than once. I've been called to play with bands that were already on stage with no drummer coming. I was effusively welcomed.
