This question will only apply to those of us without a well / creek / rainbarrel system / etc.
When you run out of water at home and have to go get some how will you bring it home? Anyone who has ever tried to carry a 5 gallon bucket of water over any significant distance knows the experience sucks. So looking for solutions.
Saw a "feel good" add on facebook for the hippo-roller- a 24 gallon barrel with a handle that lets you go out and bring water home in an easy way. Thought- "Thats a good idea. I wonder if I can buy one?". http://www.hipporoller.org/
The answer is yes- BUT- they are manufactured in South Africa and cost $125 (OK) with $175 shipping (CHOKE).
Similar items are available closer to home but are designed to be be filled with water not to transport it but to make a heavy roller to smash your lawn bumps down. Do you think it would be durable enough to roll for long distances over rocks, etc? http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...FQoNaQodf1YPhw
Anyway- other ideas? If you needed to go get water a fair distance away and bring it home WITHOUT A CAR/TRUCK how would you do it?
