Pulled the home-made pulk or sled out for a test off-trail in the swamps of Roseville, Minnesota behind my home. Just a cheap sled with para-cord and 1/2 inch PVC and a couple of beeners. Works well and gets that load off my back. Threw in the Warbonnet BlackBird Hammock http://www.warbonnetoutdoors.net, my J. Falk Bushwacker Compact Wood Stove http://www.trailgear.org, some cocoa of coarse and Shepards Pie that I made for the family that morning. Did a "Gear Gab" installment on the benefits of YakTrax http://www.yaktrax.com for winter walking ease when the snow is low or packed down.
Also..... made up songs and acted like an over-grown doof along the way.
Lessons learned here as well .... had a stove tip over in the snow.... my fault but the remedy is to make a platform with sticks underneath. To fail is the best way to learn and remember ..... No problem there......
I thankee for watching!
