Plywood+steel cable+suburban+video camera= fun times

Rhonda's mom's divorce was final last week.  That means I have tons of work to do helping get the ex-husbands numerous belongings off of her property.  This has taken the form of towing tractors, loading trailers, packing boxes, and recording it all to insure Karen is in compliance with the final settlement.  We had this really heavy tractor attachment that we needed to move.  I had no idea how to get it to the drop off spot without hurting the equipment or the road.  So I looked around and found a partial piece of plywood and a tow cable.  I attached the cable to the plywood and set the equipment on the plywood and dragged it up the dirt road.  It worked beautifully.  Nothing got hurt and I let the boys ride on it to make sure nothing fell off.  It was such fun we took a break from our work and made several other trips up and down the road.  We video taped a few.  We had to take a break after we got done playing the kids were to tired to help me finish the work.

Mayson took this video standing on the side of the suburban.  We were only going about 10 miles an hour.  Loads of fun.

 They have how to stay standing up figured out.  I am intrigued by Mayson's air guitar action.

For this video rhonda was driving and she goes slower than I do.  They spent most of the time running off and on the sled.

This was the last run before we had to go back to work.  I think they thought we would stop if they got off of the wood. 

All in all it was great fun.  We ground the wood down to nothing and got to have a fun break from the work.
