Bend over, grab your ankles and take it like a man... This is why i try to limit to 30 gallons at a time. less painfull.

No chit! First year I had buddy's ride all day and drink out of my cooler. Weeded threw those guys real quick, too many friends that will help rather than mooch. Ins, for the year payment and upkeep, $100 just too pull to the lake and back. It's nice when they offer too help. Sometimes it means whether I go the next weekend or not.
