Ron take care of yourself. Seems like the body is easier to strain the older we get.

A real piss poor design, besides that the handle for moving it is small, So when you have to move it you have to lift the heaviest end by a small handle that you can barely get two hands on . Once I'm able get out into the shop I got a couple ideas on how to put a couple swivel casters under that end.
My Traeger has four wheels and descent handle.
I hope you get past your aches and pains fast Ron.

Ron, if the pain is in your neck and left arm, how the hell are you gonna fly? Won't that limit your arm flapping? Anybody that can afford one of them Traeger Grills, ought to be able to hire somebody to move it around. I do have a drimmel tool and I hear if you cut some nerves.....well you know the rest. Get well you old hound dog.Isaac

When do you want to meet me in Chattanooga? You can ride my bike into Georgia and add that state to your list.[/QUOTE]

Haven't seen these guys in a few years, sounds like they got the days filled. Sure would like to at least have a beer with you.
Ron, I hate to hear about your pain in the neck.....However, I'm just 3hrs from Walland and an hour from Chattanooga. And and I like Beer. I would dust the ST off to meet a legend.

See Ron, how could you not fit us in the agenda. Think on it some and let us know. I can take off work for a day to meet for lunch in Chattanooga no problem.

Well; we made the hard decision and canceled the trip. Friday evenings our local GWRRA group goes for a dinner ride, so we went in the car with Betty behind the wheel, it was only about 40 miles each way, but till we got home, I could hardly get out of the car. Really want to see my nephews and a few of you guys that were willing to meet, but I didn't want to be miserable while I was gone, and I figured I better get the Doc's looking this thing over. Got the Aussies coming in less then a month.
Thanks for all the support, you are the BEST.

Sorry to hear it's not clearing up yet Ron. You're right - probably best to see what the doctor says. Too bad about the trip.
