Wheelbarrows and Other Wheeled Carriers:

A few years ago, I was about 5 miles up a old trail in the Sierra Nevada Mountains when I encountered two young men pushing a wheelbarrow with a gasoline powered dredge in it.  Now this was not a light load and they were going uphill.  I have always remembered that incident.

Ever since then I have considered wheelbarrows as another source of transportation.  In a bug out situation or merely for moving supplies always try to use wheels.  Save your back.

Make sure you have wheelbarrows that have deep sides so you can fill them and not tip over.  Do you have extra parts for it – extra wheels or tubes?  …
