Punk, if you've ever met Josh or seen him fight you would not be so concerned with his well-being. He is tough as nails and can catch bullets with his teeth.

d and safer. With cart on some bridges you will absolutely block traffic flow. Plus by packing it you can always take your gear wherever you go so you don't have to worry about any of it getting stolen. oh yes... and a sleeping pad [thermorest make a great collapsible self-inflating unit or just use one of those $6.00 blue foam pads you can find at walmart. toilet paper, unroll and re-roll around a pencil [it takes patience, remove pencil when done], reduces dimension by 30%. always have an emergency roll of toilet paper for a trip that long.a Leatherman tool can be invaluable.A rain jacket that folds up into one of its own side pockets and a waterproof hat with a brim, works as sunglasses, keeps rain off back of neck and sun off top of head. that midwestern sun can be oppresiv Layers of thin/light clothing [wool or synthetic/dries quicker]and adaptive to environment. Sleeping/rest, hard to pull a cart over a gully or obstruction like a fence. I'd backpack it.

GO to EMS, Campmor or MSR. Backpack [class 3 loading system,well padded straps,removable rain fly, portable cook stove [whisperlite series], teflon coated cookset, handheld water puifier [love my old Katydid], 3 nalgene water bottles. clearly mark one with an indelible "X" so you don't have to crawl out of your tent to urinate in the middle of the night, two collapsible walking staffs [reduces weight strain up to 40%], well vented tent with removable rain fly [take your dirty hikers off outside of tent under fly[keeps your gear dry during the night [rain ***** but so does evening dew. Sleeping bag [synthetic insulation/dries quick].Emergency kit, repeat emergency kit. Pulling weight is difficult, difficult to take a shortcut with a cart, really difficult to pull uphill and make sure you include a braking system for downhill runs. Your body position with a cart is skewed either way you look at it. Those pizza cutter wheels will*****in mud. Back pack, closer to side of roa
