Keep digging around back there, maybe there's a boat too!

Pretty sure Neil meant “to OFF.” As in, “don’t go through 2/all/1 to OFF.”

My town still uses Cushman "lil putt-putts" to collect trash twice a week, so I know exactly what you/he are talking about. Very distinctive three-wheeled utility vehicles.
