How To Make Travois


1 Cut two straight lines, strong sticks at least long 2 meters. Align them on the inside, cutting the knots and twigs with a knife.

2 Tie the sticks to the poles approx 10 cm. They must be strong enough, to withstand the weight of the placed luggage.

3 Do not tie the last of the cross sticks too close to the ends of the sticks, because they clash along the way. Leave at least a five-centimeter tip.

4 Tie the package tightly to the structure. You can pull Travois alone or you can harness an animal to them – horse or dog. During the journey, the package should not catch your pet's heels or legs.
