Lol, thanks guys. Moving rental properties is a light hearted decision compared to selling and buying your own real estate, but the moving part is just the same... Thanks for the reminder, Don. You are dead right there, It's bend at the knees these days, i might still feel 21 inside but my body is starting to show evidence of some mileage.

I'm here until Monday the 15th so plenty of time to sort the logistics out. After the move is done and dusted, its time to invest in another kit after the new workshop is fitted out, looking forward to that, my own separate bloke barn. I hear you guys though, I'm not really wanting to move either, but have to be practical in these trying times.

Can you see Steve building a light trailer to pull behind that bicycle to haul his goods around?
Surely would help him get the bod in shape!

That's a super idea Mr. G and far from subliminal. As soon as he reads that, it'll be a done deal. Knowing his handy work, he'll have it developed as soon as he's settled in his new place. If I were close to my flying spot like he will be, I'd do it for sure. This could be a marketable product Gerald .

You guys are putting ideas into my head (as usual lol) ! which i always enjoy.

Had a friend send me a pic of his tredley tow rig, looks pretty do-able. Another option is to push them uphill to the slope with my old hand trolley setup.

What would you choose? I'm thinking the bike option might be more fun and it'd be interesting to build one from scrap materials. Just have to consider a plan i suppose. It's about 250 meters to the slope from the house.

Go for the bike setup. It would also be handy to have for those trips to the store to get food and grog.

You can modify a hand trolley pretty easily to pull behind a bike.

Not a bad idea, Jeff. I will need to fasten a can cooler to the handle bars then.

Possum, my trolley already has an extra wide axle to help stability, I originally used it to move telescopes about the yard. Just wondering on what sort of hitch arrangement would be best, its already got a pull handle bolted onto the top of it.

It'd take some brain-storming, but we're a pretty resourceful bunch, us modelers.....let me think on it and I bet we'll come up with something practical and useful.

While I'm thinking of it, there are loads of people around here with prams they tow behind their bikes with kiddos in them. Might take a look at one of those for a hitch arrangement too.

How about a bike rack that you could slip the pull handle into?

Good thinking with the luggage rack. I'm buying a new mountain bike after I move and it'll have a rack on it just like this one.

There must be a hundred ways to secure the trolley handle to the rack, even with a bit of rope!

However, those smaller wheels on the "trollie" (we call em hand trucks over here in the colonies)
would make for one hell of a rough ride. Patches might complain.
Oh yes.....and besides, the axle is bent on the trollie.
That one picture of the bike towing the trailer is one serious looking build!!

Ya know.... I just might have to build myself up something like this as well if I get that place in Arizona. It would make setting up the winch easier if I could just tow it behind a Quad. See Steve.... Now you got me thinking and we all know how dangerous that can be at times!
