So around this time of year my work publishes a list of gifts for all the employees to choose from, usually household stuff, appliances, kitchenware, etc. Me, I went with a countertop mixer. Coming to work on my board, I thought to bring an adjustable packing strap to hold the box securely to the deck.
Surprisingly it worked fairly well, although it’s not something I’d want to do every day. I’m about 6 km from work with a couple of hills in the way, the board managed it with no trouble. The real problem was needing to adjust to the extra weight, which messed with my steering until I got used to it (partly because I’m a newbie rider). I just took it a bit more slowly than usual. I’m not suggesting that this is an ideal solution or anything, just that it is possible. I’m guessing I’m not even the first person to try this. I’ve even seen a couple of ideas for trailers that attached to skateboards. Anyone else ever have similar ideas?
