Let me start off with apologizing. Pics are going to take a couple of days as Ill have to coach DAD a bit on how to upload them. At the very least Im going up there on Sat. so Ill have them up then.

I believe the Table started started out as an old Pennsylvania Meteor mower and a golf cart. If that even exists. Its a Pennsylvania something. Or was. He Made a frame on top of it after he stripped it all down. Then he installed wood to make the table. And of course the obligatory keg gas tank. He used an old wisconsin that he restored for the power plant and the drive off the pennsylvania.

Reason for all this is so he can pull the kids around at the campground at the lake. Someone took some dolleys and made train carts out of them and some plastic barrels. He pulls the carts around the campground with the table. Kids fill the carts and sit on the table and away they go. Kids love it. He started off doing it by pulling them around with a hitch on his harley. Then built the table so the park owner could pull the kids when hes not there.

Its pretty cool. Pics to follow.

I'd like to see a picture of that! I can't imagine pulling carts around with an MC.

I have ideas of what it looks like but am waiting on the pictures. It should be neat. A local guy had a motorized picnic table a few years ago but it was just a table with wheels and an engine, without pulling anything behind it.
