A Cart... A cart of my own!
My Christmas present arrived today! I started assembling it, but ran out of daylight before I got the seat on. That's gonna have to wait until tomorrow. Oh well, what's another few hours right?
I've been driving my Haflinger for about a month now, he's an old pro at this thing, I learned enough at some point to drive without making a total hash of myself, and the 4 months I spent ground driving before we hooked up to the jog cart my barn owner let us use, really helped me learn the technique. It turned out to be way too long, so I've been driving sparingly, but it's helped me get an idea of what we needed. I knew what I liked, but also knew that those carts were only possible if money was no object. Which it wasn't. Darn it.
My parents ended up buying us a no-frills EE cart for Christmas. It's got bike wheels on it right now, but I'm shopping around to find some motorcycle wheels to replace them. For what I'm doing right now... very novice recreational driving, never leaving the property, it's perfect for my purposes. I'm looking forward to the experiences of the future.
Congratulations ! Enjoy your DRIVE !
Congratulations ! ENJOY !!!
