    Well its coming that bad word peak . Yesterdays pcm has informed us that some of us will be pulling pups and they want our input on where we can drop a helper off as he or she is gonna drive a golf cart around in a 50 stop neighborhood , business complex, or apt housing. Wow , how is that gonna work , I see problems . Thoughts on the subject or no interest.

    I'd like to see 50 stops worth of packages placed in sequential order on a golf cart. Probably illegal on a lot of roads anyway. And helpers would be injured/killed on day 1.

    I don't buy it.

    My question is how many packages can you get in a golf cart? There saving gas and miles. I can't believe we are gonna use helpers in 3 weeks. I'm wondering about battery life I can see the helper calling me , I have a dead battery.

    We've been doing golf carts for a few years now.

    Dump the pieces in a garage and/or drop a trailer and the golf cart pimp delivers them one trip at a time.

    Don't get too comfortable though when the SHTF guess who's gonna quit and guess who's now responsible for those 5O-1OO stops...

    I saw the first Ryder rental tractor of the year here this morning pulling a pup trailer. If they're already starting to use rental tractors in September...

    govols019 You smell that?

    If they use unlicensed golf carts on public streets just let your local law enforcement know...they frown upon that around here.

    I thought it was against the contract to have helpers drive golf carts. Our center entertained the idea a few years ago but went with bikes instead. Helper had a three wheeled bike and trailer.

    My split route was cut one Monday and Sup told me I could do the bike route or ride with another driver. I told him the only way I'd do the bike route was if I could use my 4wheeler. And I promised I would be cutting some doughnuts in the fairways at the golf course.

    I think Dean Kamen invented it. You're probably thinking about Jimi Heselden the guy who got rich selling them, then went over a cliff on an off road version of one.
