Golf cart: No stick in the mud

Golf cart stuck in the ruts
One of the best things about the golf cart is that I can drive it with impunity.  I'm not the world's best driver in the slippery, rutted driveway, and I have a tendency to try to push the envelope, driving the golf cart in conditions when it would be better to leave it at home.  Often when I just get a bit stuck, I can disembark and push the cart free by leaving one foot on the gas pedal.  But when the two wheels on the right side of the golf cart are in different ruts, I have to call Mark for a bit of extra muscle.

You would think we'd have to slave over the above situation for hours, but Mark just lifted up the back of the cart using the spud bar while I pushed the back wheel up onto the center island.  Then I got in, Mark lifted the back of the cart again to keep it from bottoming out, and I gunned her out of there.  Elapsed time: 3 minutes.  Motherly impression: "Awesome!"

Our homemade chicken waterer makes life on the farm simpler with clean water you can depend on.
