Having noticed folks mentioning a Travois in several threads, I decided to update the concept for your viewing pleasure. The Travios is constructed from 7/8ths O.D. X 1/2 I.D. steel tubing. It is sectional with 1/2 diameter LaSalle Stressproof steel rod inserted into the connecting ends to support the splices. One end of the rod is pinned into the tubing so it will stay put, and the other part is drilled to match a hole in the tube it inserts into. Pieces are held together by 1/4 inch carriage bolts. I then quickly laced 3/8ths diameter Marine line to form a basic lattace frame withint the carry area. NOTE: The Line should be Pre-Stretched prior to using. In testing, not stretching caused a greater sag in the rope then considered. Also, my frame work was quickly done just to show an example. Each individual will have to pre-test the concept to find which method of weave works best. An inexpensive 6 x 8 plastic tarp serves as the carriage bed. It is tied together underneath using 550 Cord. It is also tied to the upper cross member to hold it in place. The wheels are your typical lawnmower wheels. The are on 1/2 inch, all threaded axlels. The axle is actually all-thread rod pinned to hold position in the cross memeber tubing. Nuts hold the crossmember to the frame, and another nut hold the wheel to the axle. The end of the axles are drill to accept a 1/8th cotter pin to prevent the nuts from spinning off during travel. All nuts, washers, cotter pins, etc, are stored in bags. There are a minimum of twice the required hardware to prevent the loss of a single item preventing set-up during a night assembly. There is also a 6 inch crescent wrench included in the bags to use to tighten the nuts on the cross members. For this purpose, I have laid out the disassembled items on the tarp for wrapping and storage. First chance I get, I'll put it all in an old duffle bag. Yeah, my wrap is crap. Ever try to roll up unlike items into a neat package? Another reason for a duffle bag. Overall length in storage is 39 inches. Overall weight in storage as shown is: 35 pounds Overall assembled length is 10 ft, 8 inches. Width at the wheels: 36 inches. Estimated load capacity: 100 to 175 pounds. I am currently looking for a pair of busted skateboards. I'll use them to make skids to be used in the snow or on wet ground, that will not support wheels. At the handle end, the tubing has been knurled for a better grip. I've probably forgotten several things, but will add them as the come to mind. Also, I'll get a picture of the rod inserts and crossmembers. The pictures I took did not process as desired.
