Dear fellow scouters,
Our coucil campground is plagued by traffic problems: people driving back
to their campsites in trucks, cars, and whatever along badly maintained,
one lane trails which are often crowded with boys on foot.
I've seen a solution to this at another campground, namely, Mountain
Bayou in the Evangeline Area Council. They did not allow any motorize
vehicles past the parking lot area. People hauled their gear to their
campsites on two wheeled wagons (somewhat like rickshaws, or maybe large
gardening wheelbarrows) that were provided by the campground and kept in
a barn near the parking lot. When you finished getting your gear to the
campsite, you were required to return your cart to the barn for others to
Some scout troops here may be interested in building carts for our council
campground. Does anyone out there have a good set of plans for such a thing?
Is there anyone from the Evangeline Area Council listening?
As I recall, the wheels were a lot like bicycle wheels, the frame was angle
iron, and the sides and bottom were plywood.
