Concerned about the bugout bag weighing you down too much? This should be a concern.

Americans are sedentary creatures and we do a lot of time behind desks and on keyboards. That said, it’s important that we consider our true capabilities in a situation where we need to get out of dodge! 

How To And Why You Need To Make A Solowheel Pack - These solowheel packs are awesome if you have more than a bug out bag, if you have a really heavy bag or someone who isn't strong.

We have a very interesting build here called the Solowheel and this could be just the answer you are looking for. It might be just what you need to handle your pack or it could provide you the leverage you need to carry even more when the time comes. 

What is a Solowheel?

The solowheel is essentially a pack carrying system or a gear carrying system that is designed to be pulled with a single wheel.

It is comprised of a small shelf that tapers down to a single wheel. This design uses a pretty big wheel but I would imagine you could even put something like a wheelbarrow wheel on the solowheel. 

This system can hold a pack and two other items or maybe smaller packs. 

Creating the Solowheel

To do this properly you are going to need a mold for the frame and have some experience with veneer. If you are in the dark about those things, simply check out the build at its original page. There is no doubt that the solowheel can lighten your load. 

With a small shop, you could create your own custom solowheel and outfit it just the way you like. If nothing else it would be a great solution for children who get tired of carrying their bags on a hike or bugout

We all have physical limits and the stress around the topic of bugging out. It’s a big deal so we need to take every advantage.

Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food

Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.

Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.

Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
