Haven fallen nosefull deep into the barn yard crap lastnight and haven tried washing away the horors of the episode hiding the taste of some really bad brandy in some apple cider I have come about feeling some cleared headed this morning.
Just wonering If anyone has devised a way to carry a couple of grain buckets and ski poles at the same time for good vertical support. Them horizontal landings are a down right smelly nuscance.
Trying to remain an upright farmer!

Our barnyard crap is more than nose deep now that the gound is thawing. It more than likely would have filled your ears, too. Maybe you need a hat with a wider brim?

We gave up trying to walk through the stuff & bought a 4wd atv. It carries grain buckets and hay bales much better than I do on foot.

i like to use a wheelbarrow to move stuff around - it only needs 1 track, has handy handles to keep everything upright, coupla skids to lean on and carries lots more than i can. it that ain't gonna work, i borrow my grandson's red wagon. (well heck, he's napping! :)

What are you carrying buckets for? drape a sack over yer shoulder. good enough to feed deer. :)

How about a "yoke" like device over the shoulders (see them in just about every movie showing Chinese doing work), that way it would allow one hand for a ski pole for stabilization and one for the load to keep it in place.

I see lots of "seasoned citizens" around here using ski poles to help them walk in the winter. Of course they're as common as dirt in this area. Might be you'll have to give up one grain bucket for insurance purposes? And make 2 trips instead?
Cheer up, winter's not long now.
