The Long Haul – the Scout Cart

Often known as a Trek Cart. these carts were commonly used 50-80 years ago as the only means of transporting scout gear to a campsite.

This Scout Cart is estimated to be 60 years old, but could be older.  25th Southampton Sea Scouts have kindly lent us this one for The Long Haul.

Two people can pull this cart at any one time.  Going up and down hill takes about 4 people.

Sponsor banners and scout flags will adorn this scout cart on its 60-mile trek from Brownsea Island to Winchester.
