as a hiker, I found that my backpack, as day passed, become heavier and heavier. And also another point - i like to spend not only one day on top, I want to overnight and wait sunset as well Summary, I have to carry about 15 to 20 kg, and well, it is difficult.
Then come to me a spark!
Hey, what if I take a wheel and split weight?
I collect all info about such idea and made a triangle from bamboo sticks,(natural material) insert a wheel and start to test.
It was perfect regarding weight, maneuverability, dissembling, perfect strong for 15 kg weight and extreme cheap. But.
On rocks he bounced. When you come in rhythmical walk, weight start to bounce. Bamboo was to lissome/willowy.
Back to paper and here follows the construction of my KP solowheel II carriage, for hiking purposes.
Step 1: KP Solowheel II
Idea was to not carry a normal backpack (cca 2kg empty) on such carriage ... KP solowheel carriage has to be backpack itself as well. It has to be made from wood and in a form which I like. Volume about 50 liters net, upgrade to 80 l.
First i took a cheap construction board, and cut this to make a mold. I want to have a box made from linear glued beech veneer. Veneer shall be 1.5- 2 mm thick in tapes 130 x 1000 mm in three layers, unidirectional rings to get proper strength. So I made a mold for bending veneer. To make sides of my boxes.
