[[Oblivion:Containers|Container]]. If you dismount, you will have to drop enough items on the ground to [[Oblivion:Encumbrance|un-encumber]] yourself. Setting up a [[Oblivion:Containers#Non-Traditional_Containers|Non-Traditional Container]] or locating a [[Oblivion:Containers#Traditional_Containers|Traditional Container]] at your destination, before you make the trip, is advisable.
