Golf cart update

golf cart winchingThe ground thawed out enough today to get some traction for pulling the golf cart up the hill. Once we got it up the hill it took a while to figure out how to load it onto the trailer.

We decided to use the hand winch to pull it up another smaller hill to take advantage of the slant. Then we used the winch again to secure one side of the trailer to a tree and tied down the other side with a tow strap. At that point it only took a carefully guided roll backwards to seat it snuggly into place.

The trip into town will have to wait till tomorrow. It might seem like a small problem to solve, but when I saw everything loaded up and tied down I took a deep breath and felt like we had climbed a large mountain and jumped a significant hurdle. The fact that we struggled through it together made the victory even sweeter.
