    I think maybe the autistic are more in touch with things than the kids who arent burdened with it.

    That and kindred spirit got me. I've been reading a lot more about autistic and downs syndrom people lately. Not on purpose but I've been running across articles. It seems the comunication is the barrier for a lot of them. There's a lot they understand and know about but can't express. But once that barrier is crossed, the river runs deep.

    Sorry about Rachel.

    I do a lot of charity work for a local autism foundation, and this is powerful stuff. Thanks for sharing.

    I'd like to make something like that for my Dad. He's been reverse-searing steaks, cooking on a Traeger and then finishing under the broiler, but I'd love to give him something that would allow him to really sear the shit outta those steaks - outside. Can you share any info? Know there's a lot more to it than you see at first glance.

    Ummmm...that doesn't look too safe.

    What's the weight of the ATV?

    Even if the ATV/rack combo comes in under the max tongue weight, the hitch wasn't originally designed to handle weight cantilevered out like that.

    Have you considered adding a castor to the rack along these lines?

    It weighs less than a streetbike. Don't worry about it.

    Weight isn't the issue so much as the length that causes LEVERAGE issues.
