How about a new mountain adventure with a loaner "dogness?" Don't be fooled, this ain't Allie. She's my fun companion as we head up into remote areas for a 2 day adventure testing and living out of my Bug Out Kit (BOK). It's a complete system of food, shelter, tools, clothing, lighting, cooking, sleeping, FAK, and more.
The change will be we put to the test the notion of using a GAME CART (https://amzn.to/2Qgb0vo) to haul the gear up. You'll see this approach to hauling a complete survival kit over terrain probably for the first time in the world. The cart is the "GoCart Model also listed a Costway Model OP2976."
Lots of narration ensues on the hikes in and I'll draw some conclusions of this conveyance as it tackles rocks, creeks, and carrying about 80 lbs of gear. Sadie is a fun, welcome companion but you'll see she's not quite a mountain dogness and does not possess Allie's fitness and training levels (lots of work to achieve). Camp will set up as night falls and the temp drops in this Part 1; Part 2 should be shorter.

Agreed, really miss Allie adventures also. She was the best. Awesome update BOK review bro. I dig these options and it does seem like the game cart is better overall for the rugged environments like both the high desert near you and the lower Appalachian mountains near me. Thank you and keep up the awesomeness.
Thanks for the support Pezz. Yep I miss them too. Sadie's a sweet girl but no Allie. Allie was sooo smart and could figure things out and knew how to work in the mountains. Sadie was raised as a housedog and she doesn't have the training. Glad you liked the BOK vids, this game cart idea, given to me by my Patreons, worked great!
Thinking of dogs....as I have never trained a dog and the dog my father trained as he has passed and I've never learned how to and alot of your videos have taught what he didn't get a chance if you could @nut fancy maybe make a video on how to train a dog even if your not a pro....and maybe get a new dog as you miss your old one and teach us along the way or teach in a video jw I'd love to learn and online it's just idk weird to learn from those people just a though love your videos
Thats great, Nutn. Thanks for putting it to the hills. I was hesitant on your concept with the luggage in the tabletops, but I think I can see it applied. I might even rig up a game drag shoulder strap to that cart handle to go hands free. Nice work.
Great video Nutn, one suggestion I learned from some guys up here in Northern ID when they were speaking about using pulk sleds, poles. By that I mean get two small gauge ABS pipes a few feet long, attach them to a belt like you have on that cache hauler frame by running some 550 cord through the pipe. Then tie the other end to the cart and that frees your hands up and saves yours arms/hands/back. Tie some knots at the ends of the pipe so the rope doesn't pull through. Make sure you have a quick release belt buckle so you can drop it all of you need to book it.
Obviously you are an excellent dog person. Maybe it's time for you to give a new dog, your new dog, it's best life. After a year, I was ready for a new family member. Every personality is different, but the pure joy they provide is undeniable.
I would find a way to lighten/minimize your kit to fit in a large backpack instead and strap big stuff like your tent on the outside. I feel like this system just REALLY restricts the terrain you can handle. Plus restricts your ability to defend yourself against someone or animal; force you to drop your supplies and run rather than run and defend while keeping your supplies.
Just my two cents though. Ina WROL, I always think of how many people have weapons, but never stocked any survival supplies and their willingness to kill you for yours.
just a question maybe you have allready answered this before. But why not go with a light that is USB charger capable? My headlamp is that and all I do is hook it up to my portable solar charger works great for me.
They do have aluminum game carts, but they only have a 300 to 350 pound load capacity. The one you have has a 500 pound capacity. The reason that might matter is if you have to pull a wounded person in the cart without having to ditch your gear. I'm looking into one of these since my bug out bag weighs over 75 pounds, and without having my 3l bladder filled. It does include ammo and an AR mounted in a rifle scabbard MOLLE'd to the pack. I have a severe scoliosis and that's ridiculous. A game cart makes a whole lot more sense to me. I'm also a type 1 diabetic and thus, I have to bring insulin in a container that has to remain cool in summer... That adds a little weight but not a whole lot.
Could you make a strap with some para cord or on old shoulder/duffel bag to lug the cart with your shoulders? Would save on your arm/wrist in situations were you wouldn't need allot of control would it not? That or maybe a harness? It would add weight but maybe it would be good weight if it helps you lug that gear easier. I've never used a pack sled in the winter but maybe treating it like one would help.
Nutn, thanks for bringing us on the ‘bokventure’. Happy to hear about the game cart working as well as it did. Sorry to hear about the knee problems you have. I think the wrist problem thing must be shooting so much. Guessing. Happy to see the loaner quadraped ‘Sadie’ with you. Good review.
Hah! So you finally gave up on the stupid golf cart and other useless small-wheeled bags and vehicles you babbled about in your Bug Out series and decided to go for something with some sturdiness to it and big enough wheels to actually cover rough ground - something designed for backwoods hauling. Which is exactly what I criticized in my earlier Youtube comments. That's an improvement. But it's still an absurd approach for a real bug out where moving fast may be a key issue. For that, the backpack - and a not too heavy one at that - remains the most effective solution. Where this approach does make sense is for hauling supplies in from a road head to a remote bug out location which has been pre-established or is being established.
I dont understand why anyone would not include at least 2L of water in their bag. I do not get it. I dont think it is unreasonable to rotate water once or every other year depending on where you store your bag.
You mentioned not having water in the BOK. I keep a couple bottles in my kits along with some ready to eat wet-ish food. My thinking behind it is at the beginning of a bug out situation I will still be fresh and strong enough to handle a little extra weight and it will be consumed within the first day, probably within the first 6 hours or so actually, so after that the weight is gone and I'm fed and hydrated enough to get me to the next day without having to worry about finding water. If I'm having to bug out I don't want to assume I'll have plenty of time later to find water. I may be on the move for a whole day or more. I know water is very easy to find in urban areas. Heck any yard with a sprinkler system offers water if you remove a sprinkler head and suck out water from the line. But if its wacko WROL New Orleans style I'm gonna keep walking till its safe. Just saying a little water at the start won't hurt any and it'll result in reusable empty bottles.
Bahaha this dude rolling with a check on bag like he's boarding a flight to Europe, 300 pounds of gear, you aren't bugging out you are MOVING TO THE WOODS. In a shtf scenario you would be accosted quickly trying to lug all that crap around, I actually think this is a parody video.
I have an idea of how to make the cart work better. You could tie some paracord to the handle on both sides with carabiners attached to the ends. This way you could clip the cart to a belt or backpack to act as a harness. This will free strain off your arms and allow you to walk more straight. This could also allow you to use some trekking poles. If you are going to pull a cart, you might as well make yourself into the best horse possible.
Nutn, I can't thank you enough for your videos. I play them in the background on Tuesday's when I'm watching my daughter. You have a calming demeanor and can always seem to brighten my day. Keep doing what you're doing.
Gotta test your gear. Especially in situations other than a warm sunny day in summer. Know yourself, your gear, and your limits.
I’m young and have lots to learn, but I learn through testing and empirical data!
Thank you for all this effort and time you put into this, but I do have some suggestions and criticisms That cart needs a belt attachment of some sort so you can pull it with no real muscle fatigue in your arms, load it with a little extra weight to the nose to keep the tether leads tight.
Major fail on weapon or lack thereof... I keep a 4.75" heritage rough rider .22lr/.22mag with a holster and ammo in my b.o.k. yes it's a tad heavy.
Say what you want about it but it's cheap enough to replace, and has never failed me, and already has several snake, squirrel and turtle kills to it's credit.
Then my edc of a Taurus 709 and a spare mag, crkt moxie for blade. Then my bok carries a no name fixed blade and a Gerber machete.
As for water filtration, keep that and water storage in easily accessible points in your pack while In transport mode, In a real wrol situation passing up a water source could be a fatal mistake.
Nut'n, for plantar fasciitis go to a good physical therapist and get trigger point dry needling. I suffered with this a year doing all the usual stuff, cortisone shots, boot at night, icing, stretching, nothing helped. A PT whom I really trust suggested this. No lie, it was intense, but relief was rapid. Within 2 weeks of needling sessions I was well again.
A major issue with wheels is that they sink in muddy ground when loaded heavy. Even normal ground when snowmelt saturated. 1.5" should be minimum, those 17" wheels would fare better than the 3 little rotating ones.
Hey Nutn. Good to see you spending time with a dog again! We lost our dog a few months after Allie passed and I recalled your heartfelt tribute. It helped me be okay with just being sad about it. Thanks for all the high quality truth and entertainment over the years. Rock on, dude!
Nutun are you going to stay silent?

You do not need to calculate payroll premium if your policy is on a stipulated billing cycle.
Sample Payroll Report.
However, if your policy is not yet on a stipulated billing cycle, this is typically what you will see when we send you a payroll report.
A split payroll report is sent when there is an Anniversary Rating Date on your policy, which is the month and day that rates, rating plans and rating systems are initially applied to a policy in force and each annual anniversary thereafter. Your payroll will need to be annotated for each period specified.
Sample Split Payroll Report.
We will need a complete employee job description before we add the classification to the policy. Please do not report payroll in the new classification until it has been reviewed and endorsed to your policy.
Job Duties Questionnaire.
We recommend you keep a copy of your previous payroll reports and payroll records for at least seven years, as you would your tax records.
