how to build a travois

As to not pollute the other thread, this was one of the best descriptions of a real travois. Note that this nor others would ever work down waterbars, stair steps to heck, or whatever in the Sierra. The swath is too big. Trekking poles are too weak.

Prove to me you can build one out of trekking poles, I guess.
