Old farts like me need this

Bushwalking gear and paraphernalia. Electronic gadget topics (inc. GPS, PLB, chargers) belong in the 'Techno Babble' sub-forum.

TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

I think I've found my new want and must have, need this toy NOW thing.
Just perfect for old blokes like me with heavy gear who also want to take along the esky and lots of beer.

As I just told Cecile
"But dear it has headlights" So when I'm running late I can still see the track in front of me.
Fit a chain to that driven front wheel and some short skids on the back and It could maybe pull me along on skis, being battery operated it's the perfect stealth camper aid.
I have no idea what battery life would be like but I'd guess an hour or so on a full charge for the two batteries used one after the other. Deduct 10 kilos from the 130 kg payload for all the spare batteries and the solar panel needed to recharge
Now I just need to win the lottery

I like it. You could even use it as a 'lag wagon' and harness spritely young whipper snappers to it to tow you along when the old knees give way
