Re: What did you do with your LT/GT today
Here in northern Michigan, our land is hilly, all sand, covered by lichen and small grasses. We are just moving in here, and have about 500 lbs of rocks to locate on the property (mostly small 1-2lbs, but many in the 10-30lb category). We are rock-hounds, and have a fossil collection which is cool to look at, but what a pain to move. Taking a look around at the soil, I was in a quandary as to how to move these with my small tow-behind cart, as the wheels go flat when too loaded, then it sinks into the sand. Plus pulling uphill in sand is a no-go. Then I got an idea that worked; I went to a hardware store and bought a $60 polyethylene cargo-sled that is normally used for ice fishing. Loading this thing up with the rocks, I was able to tow them smoothly over the landscape without a mark or problem. I will be moving stumps with it next...
