Some of the camps I have been to use the camp truck and truck w/trailer to
hual the equipment into the camp sites. This works, but if everyone
arrives at the same time, the less organized usually do some waiting.
RE: the carts. I too remember reading about them somewhere recently but I
could not find anything in my limited collection of Scouting magazine and
Boy's Life. (I move too much, and when I do, I usually throw things away.)
Seems to me, I remember reading about it in a column about The Way Things
Were, and then there were plans somewhere else. Maybe I read about in the
book, THE BOY SCOUTS, AN AMERICAN ADVENTURE. This is the 75th Aniv book
which came out the other year. If I did read it in this book, there were
no plans. (I looked). An old scout book is also a possible place to look.
But I have not really read any of these for a good ten years.
Monica, May I suggest you bug some mechicnically inclined person to dream
up a plan for you. Just be sure this persons understandes how much weight
you plan to carry in it and what kind of power it will use. Seems to me a
three wheel design might be more stable and hold more weight than the two
wheel design I remember reading about.
It is too bad, no one remembers reading about these carts and the plans.
It might be nice to know where they are.
