A great Farmer's Walk toy

I've whipped together a homemade set of Farmer's Walk handles.  From IronMind, I ordered a couple of their plate loading pins, complete with carabiners.  I had just been tying weights together but this became too much of a nuisance.  With the plate loading pins, I can adjust the weight at a moment's notice, depending on how far I want to go.  

For handles, I use a couple pieces of 2" diameter PVC pipe five or six inches long.  This fits my hand about right.  Through the PVC pipe I run some strong nylon cord and tie both ends to a dog leash clip (probably the weakest link in the chain, but it hasn't given out yet.  

Then I load up the pins and I'm off.  Fast and easy.  And painful.  If nothing else, it's worth it for the strange looks I get from the neighbors.
