Love the bike seat! Nice thinking. What kind of weight limits does a stroller like that carry? I'm kind of a big boy.

I can't wait for it to warm up again. Garage sale season is on the horizon.

Swap that bicycle seat out for a lawnmower seat and it'd be a lot more comfy.

I'm 250 and I only use it to sit and not to ride. I'm going to switch the seat to a fishing seat. It works at most courses.

Roc and Roll!

My Christmas cart. Amazing how much less fatigue this almost 60 year old felt after 27 holes.



My bag full of discs, Angie's discs, towels, an extra winter coat, stool, thermos, juice water bottles, smoking stuff, camera, snacks and much much more. With the bulk of my bag up and almost over the rear axle it was counter weighted perfectly to push it with the front wheel up and therefore very easy to maneuver even in wet, sloppy, deep, mud.

You looked so happy the other day!
And now I know who this is
And now you know who this is

Don't forget to thank Scotty, I still do every time I get mine out of the car.

I see a buggy card in our futures..

Gun Buggy; First Impressions

I've used my Gun Buggy (Here forever known as a Disc Buggy) a half dozen times on frozen ground and in up to 5-6 inches of light snow.

It is not a tank. The biggest knock that gun owners who have reviewed the cart is how flimsy it is. Well, I don't know what they expect for $150, but for the price the cart is all I could want or expect. It lists for $149.99 at Cabelas and/or Gander Mountain, but with a little googling you can find either a coupon or promo to knock some cash off. A comparable "Runner's Baby Stroller" sells well over $200 and you can pay upwards of $500 for one of those.

The cart is lightweight and portable although somewhat bulky. Especially trying to get it in and out of our 05 Camry sedan, or 03 Focus 3 door. It folds easily. Without any modifications the wife and I loaded it with:

4 drinks of various sizes up to a full sized Stanley Thermos.
A foldable canoe seat for sitting on snowy benches and picnic tables
A 3 legged golf stool
My Voodoo Mojo that was already loaded with various disc golf sundries and my 15 discs (it would be more effective with my Voodoo quads taken off the bag)
8 towels
Smoking stuff
A camera
Her dozen discs sans a bag
Extra hand warmers
An extra winter hat

There may have been another thing or 2 I can't recall.

With my heavier bag on the upper compartment and Angie's discs in the lower pouch the cart is counter balanced nicely to push it with the upper wheel raised off the ground. I'll explain the importance of this in a minute. It handled the snow, mud, slush, & ice with aplomb.

No more aching 60 year old back after a round of 27 in the snow.

Like I opened with this cart is not a tank. The front wheel is sloppy on its axle. There are some not so sturdy plastic parts throughout. And the foam wrapping the handlebar is skimpy. But at $150 with a little caution TLC, and I'm not the best with TLC on my equipment I see getting 3 or more seasons out of it.
