For those of you who want a sled...

Get an old tire, drive a u-bolt through the tread wall and get an old rope, etc to pull it with. A tire on non-gravel covered pavement has a TON of friction even with relatively low weights. It is cheap too. I'll bet most of you can find a free tire laying on the side of the road somewhere. Tire shops will give them to you by the ton if you will take them. Saves them money on disposal. Your typical sled doesn't really give you any advantages over this design unless it allows you to push it as well (like a prowler).

This is the most simple tool to get your hands on, no question. I use mine at least twice a week, and you can see how often DH uses his. Honestly there isn't a good excuse not to have one.
