Brulen: I agree whole heartedly. Puling the trigger and using to stout walking stick as a club will help carry the day. Besides, I read that even “seasoned citizens” will develop more muscle and stamina if they can get themselves moving. With the younger people in our small group ready to lend a hand, we will not have to do all the heavy lifting ourselves.
Like the idea of the pony and cart. Also have access to a Model A pickup truck. Anyone who has seen any of the older videos with the trucks driving in mud ruts up to their axles, will appreciate what they can do.
