I went to Walmart this morning and asked the guys in the automotive department if I could bring my old batteries to Walmart and they said sure, we can't pay you for them in less you bought them here but you can drop them off here if you want.
Knowing that took a load off my mind but left me with the problem of how do I get those batteries out of the Arctic Fox and into the truck. I was about 99.9 percent sure that I couldn't lift them out of the ice chest because of the bent over position I have to get into to lift them, and after trying it I was 100 percent sure.
After giving it some thought and deciding that the ice chest was the problem and that the ice chest was going to be thrown away after the batteries are gone, I got out my sawzall and proceeded to cut the front off of the ice chest, which allowed the batteries to be easily taken out of the Arctic Fox.
My dad always told me it was better to use your brain than you're back but I had never tried it before so I was amazed at how well it worked. I may have just discovered a whole new way of solving problems.
Without a front on the ice chest the batteries came out with hardly any lifting at all
I was able to just swing them over onto the tailgate
Once the ice chest is gone I'll have more space to store stuff, now I'll be able to bring along my antique boat anchor collection.
