I recently went camping with one of the newer generation of Army packs. It had the plastic external frame with the adjustable sliders that allowed the
pack to slide up and down to configure to different body types. I do not remember the nomenclature, sorry. Anyway we hiked up one of the trails in
the Superstition mountains carrying 6 liters of water each, MREs, jerky, binoculars, rope, shovel, sleeping bag, drop cloth and other asst. camping
gear. My pack weighed fifty pounds and it was a real bear to carry over trail less terrain. Next time I will probably take a hand truck and the
ALICE. It would be great to have a couple of Sherpas though.
When I was actively prospecting in the Goldfield Mountains and Picketpost Mountain areas, I made a hand cart out of wood and the front wheels of 2
twenty six inch bicycles. It worked great, but eventually the termites ate it. Next one will be made out of used bed frames welded and bolted. EAT
