Bud built the cart that Della pulled from Arkansas to Maine. On the roof was a solar panel, and there were two generators that operated off the rotation of the back wheels. (The solar panel was so efficent that the wheel generators were rarely used.) This electricty was stored in two golf cart batteries to power lights, a fan, a computer and printer. A cord ran between the cart and tent.
The cart also had a covered seat which was called "the cab." Patricia would ride in it and run the brake going down steep hills and in city traffic. It had roll up screens for bug-free dinners and writing. Here the cart is parked at Mermaid's Purse Farm in Prospect Harbor, Maine. The Atlantic Ocean is in the background.
The cart had eleven doors with a compartment behind each one. On the front was one that opened up like a trunk. They called it the "nose", and that was Della's comparment. It held 100lb of feed, grooming tools, medications, shoeing tools and extra mule shoes. When the lid to the nose was down, it could hold two bales of hay. On the right side of the cart there was a door that opened down to become a desk. Behind it was the computer and printer. On the left side was another door that opened down as a counter top. That was the kitchen part of the cart. The back door was used for several things, including a dinner table and a stage. In the tradition of the old traveling medicine shows, the Kennys financed their jouney producing poetry shows. More about that later.
