    I should probably rename this thread slightly and move it to the DIY forum?
    Sure, whatever works for everybody. Thanks again.

    First thing I did was pull the tubes and put in Slime. Mountain bikes have spread goat heads everywhere in the west.
    Thanks,

    When you step on one you'll know
    It's a nasty thorn that looks like - well, a goat head

    Me too. Maybe that reference is a goat-rope.

    Kirk,
    Brunell was into a good thing showing a "Riflesideholder," which might be muy appropriate for Neuvo Mejico. You might want to do a merge of these two approaches. Thanks to both of you for the ideas. I'm off to China tomorrow, where the path is all steps out of hewn stone. No carts for me, alas, it'll be backpack 'til I puke.

    Re: Alernatives to Sherpa cart for hauling gear?

    I've been using a Baby Jogger for years with my 4 x 5 equipment. I can carry everything I need. It works weel over level terrain and and I've managed over moderately hilly terrain with some difficulty.

    At one point I ordered a Sherpa cart, but when it arrived I found it was much too heavy for me to handle with my bad back. There were also other problems, so I returned it.

    Re: Adapted baby jogger for hauling gear.

    A few years ago I put a salvaged backpack frame on a cheap golf bag cart with hose clamps. I then slung my LowePro super trecker on it and draged along. Works great in an urban setting and groomed trails too. Folds up to stow and cost <$50 and Looks, well . . . ."manly".

    My sojourns are more urban in terrain, but for you trail walkers, this might be useful:
