Walking Bug Out Transport
A walking bug out transport is really more of a hand or foot-operated wheeled device that you can use to transport yourself or your supplies.
I've collected a couple two-wheeled luggage carts that can serve as a walking bug out vehicle in a bug out situation where a motor vehicle may not be feasible (no gas,post emp etc.) I could load a lot of stuff on one of those carts and push or pull them along.
I also found a larger type of two-wheeled cart that's primarily for use at the beach or for laundry. It's about 3 times as big as a regular luggage cart and has a mesh sack that hangs from the top.
In a pinch I could push the smaller hand cart and pull the larger one. I could probably also rig some kind of "harness" around my waist so it could be pull hands-free. – CLH
In a bug out situation on foot a wheel barrow would work too. Also my husband has a deer cart for hauling out of the woods. It's easy to handle. Also, don't forget about the kids wagons too. They can haul a lot of stuff too. Another thing that would be good too is shopping carts. I have always thought about grabbing ones folks leave along the road here after they have pushed their groceries home. – D.
I have a couple of old golf bag carts, no bag, just a cart, if I need to leave on foot. - KK.
I've loaded a bunch of my stuff up in a wheeled bowling bag carrier. The inside is
big enough for two bowling balls and it has an external zippered pouch for
shoes & one for "necessities" like hand towels, rosin, etc. While
it wouldn't stand up to a cross-country trek, it would be great for shorter
bug-outs. I've seen these at local garage sales for $2. – G
Other Types of Walking Bug Out Transport
Almost anything that has wheels and can be pushed or pulled will be invaluable during a walking bug out. I remember seeing photos of the refugees during the Vietnam War. Many people were carrying what they could in packs on their backs, loaded on a bike...BIG loads on the bikes, hand carts and whatever they could drag, push or pull.
I was in Sam's Club today and saw what looked like a cross between the rolling carts people buy to haul luggage through the air port and a dolly. It was collapsible like the cart, but also had a ledge big enough to move large boxes on. The pic on the front showed two large boxes and some type of bag I think. Anyway, it was made to move large amounts of weight considerable distances easily. – KL
A Harness for Towing a Walking Bug Out Transport
In some of the PAW fiction I've been reading lately, I've learned about game carts. After reading how they were used as a walking bug out vehicle, I did some research. The price for game carts start at about $100 and goes up from there. The average weight that a game cart can haul is about 300 pounds. So that might be something to consider if you believe you may be faced with a walking bug out.
