Rickshaws are an ancient form of handcart that, at their simplest, consist of nothing more than a platform with two wheels attached and a handle or two to make it easy to be pulled by a human being. Handcarts have been used to move people and goods throughout the world, including pioneers in the United States.
Rickshaws might be useful to anyone who decides to carry an "I'm-Never-Coming-Home Bag" (INCH) as they allow you to transport a much heavier load with far less effort than carrying it on your back or pushing it on a wheelbarrow. Rickshaws are more stable than either wheelbarrows or drag sleds and can carry more weight, up to two people. Modern aluminum framed Rickshaws can be found for hauling game instead of people at many hunting outfitters.
