The bug is undergoing major changes right now (need a manure-spreader tire for it) so we'll use the cart for the St Urho's parade right? Josh can drive the parade, i'll just sit back & relax - excellent! So the cart loaded without incident, then the rain came so we slid around the slopes some with the trailer gleefully pushing, finally made the tar and kept it about 25. No more than got to town and the windshield frame came loose and part of it fell off, "oh that's not bad, we'll go ahead in and unload then fix it" So we backed it down, went around to Conoco for gas and a back tire went flat - one of my newly-studded ones. Well we did make the parade alright but i'm less than confident by now, so i told josh no matter what happens, keep it going. So all the while he's in the parade i'm hoping he doesn't run over anybody cuz josh sometimes takes me literally. Then we decided to just back up to a slope and bounce it off instead of using those pesky ramps. With snowbanks all over, that might not have been the easiest way either, but it made the road intact & upright. It's dark and everything's home now & okay it needs a few refinements but we still had good finn fun :)
