Camp Wheelbarrow

I set a challenge to my scouts to design a pioneered wheelbarrow during our recent troop camp, and this is the result- Kingfishers patrol built a wheelbarrow complete with wheel cut from a log.

Construction is very simple- 4 thin spars lashed together with square lashings, a "cradle" woven between them, and a wheel with a tent peg axle. Very fast wheelbarrow, still looking solid six months down the line, it now hangs in front of their patrol den.
