Wouldn't it have been a better workout had you just pushed it home?

Just hope it wasn't an uphill trip home.

1,000-lbs costs 2-mpg

back in the 80's I drove to Los Angeles and picked up a load of NiCad batteries for my PV system.
Loaded,the rig was a half ton over original weight of the solo car.
I averaged 50-mpg at 55-mph,a 2-mpg loss.

If I ever finish this thing she might do a bit better.

A stove.

I used the 2x4's as a ramp to slide it up and in, and later down and out by myself.



It's a cheap used one I found on Craigslist to go in the rental house.
