Living simply in an over-complicated world

The Boys have created a double deck downhill transportation device. It got pretty fast on the steeper bits of the hill. Notice use of fork as handbrake.
Try replicating that with an X-Box.

I think the X-Box is too small to sit on and it doesn’t slide that well. 🙂

hehe. Thanks for that Nico: it cheered up my breakfast no end. I hadn’t thought of that -the power cable would run out eventually too…

Bloomin’ marvellous- proper play, like wot we used to do as kids. Don’t let the nanny police see this….holding a fork without armoured gloves?? Rolling in a barrel without adequate head, elbow and eye protection? Outrageous! Reminds me of how my bro and I would slide down the hill on fertlilzer bags filled with hay. Snow optional!

Thanks for the comment Iain. I did wonder about the Nanny Police: that’s why I didn’t take a picture on the steep bit the boys discovered later, well that and the fact I had to act as catcher, which you can’t do while taking photographs…
I did the fertiliser bag thing as well, But only on snow…
