Enter the Pulk sled. Rather than just using a rope to pull, Pulk sleds employ a rigid pole system that allows you to tow your gear without it hitting you when you go downhill.
Theoretically I should be able to get my gear to the campsite in only one trip.
Rather than purchasing a pricy, pre-made Pulk, do it yourself (DIY) and make one.
There are numerous considerations in designing your Pulk:
- Do you use a padded belt or just rope for a harness?
- Should poles be configured in parallel, a triangle or crossed?
- How do you attach the poles to the sled?
- Should you have runners on your sled?
