    Went to stock up for the storm, we're in the "bullseye". My Cart had a flat, and I left the compressor in the wife's SUV. D'oh!...<> Hmm....what to do....

    Grabbed a dolly, the crate my stove came in and a rope. Got the minions and started throwin' wood to them to load.

    Hilarity ensues - Older son was gracious and let younger brother drive first load. Younger brother decides to try and unseat him to drive second load also, but learned that an ATV seat is an easily defensible position ;lol Little guy mounted three unsuccessful attacks. All three of us were laughing by the time he gave up.

    worked good enough to get me a week or so inside, only a short straight ride to the house.

    Good thinking.

    I too like that area. I lived in West Augusta and worked in Staunton 12 or 13 years ago. Miss the scenery.

    Necessity is, after all, the father of invention. Nice work!
