Mood: I need some more buggying!

[*] posted on 7-29-2017 at 06:42 PM

Wide axle showed up on Friday, and it went on the buggy. This morning conditions at Nahant beach, during morning low tide were excellent. Cloudy, cool, no people and 16 mph winds gusting to 20. PKD Buster 4.4 came out and the next two hours were AWESOME. The buggy becomes a completly different buggy with the PL seat and the wide axle. I thought the midi tires slid more than the barrows but not sure if that was my impression because i was moving faster than I have before. Any ideas on where i could find a belly pan, ended up with a real soggy bottom when i wrapped it up.
After two hours could barely hold on to the kite because of shoulders and arms taking a beating. Not good because the conditions continued to be epic for another 2-3 hours. Which leads me to the next question. I'm starting to think about strapping a harness on but still worried to make that plunge. Thinking it might make sense to wait until WBB in October so i can get some help when i come there. Any advice in the meantime.

Strong arming builds character....

If you do go and strap in I would highly suggest setting up an automatic quick release (AQR). I have been there when one friend had an out of buggy experience (OBE) and have heard of many others. An aqr is a great way to keep you in your buggy and a little bit safer.
