    Harbor Freight has a little winch operated lift gate type thing that hooks into the hitch receiver.

    Is that a walking cane in the lower right-hand corner of the picture?

    To be honest, the incongruity of the cane in the picture really intrigued me. I could be wrong, but in looking at the picture I saw a huge log with capped ends that probably is filled with bees. I see a pickup with a hoist plugged into the receiver. The whole thing speaks of a LOT of physical effort. Then I see a cane down in the corner and I think... that's gotta be one gutsy beekeeper out there who isn't going to let anything get in his way. It's a cool picture, but not because of the hoist or the log.

    Yes that is what it looks like, at the time I was useing it because of a broken hip (replacement) and it was spiting snow all it much better now the cane is in the closet with the walker and other tools I needed at that time so the broken hip is 3 years gone by and the log in the truck is still setting behind the shop and the bees are still ALIVE

    What a great idea! Great photo showing an easy solution to a common problem.
    Being lucky can sometimes overcome a lack of preparation. The only problem is that you can't plan on being lucky!
