Carting Photo Gear to a Shoot
2

I recently invested in a folding Ozark Trails cart, initially, to cart my groceries in from my truck in one trip, but had thought that the beast would work fine for carting photo gear to shoots, off road - or wherever.

Ozark Trails Large Cart

And the beast folds up too.

It's not quite what you'd think for photography gear, but it works for the purpose - and others, like getting those groceries into the digs in one trip.

I had originally thought to get a classical Radio Flyer kid's wagon, but after digging around, settled on this.

There is much that has yet to be spoken in art and composition and it grows with the passage of time. Evolving technologies, world environments and ideologies all drive change in thoughts, passion and expression. There is no way that it can all ever be done already. And therein lies the venue for the creative artist, a venue that is as diverse as the universe is unmapped and unexplored." - Quote from FlyingLentris

I've thought about getting something similar; I've seen essentially the same cart sold under other brands.  Would be ok on packed gravel, but not so good on a sandy beach.

That would sort of be like the  Mars rover getting stuck in the sand?

Very good. Saw someone last year with something very similar.

They paved the trail to my favourite corner at my local race track a few years back and I keep thinking of something similar. There is a big hill too so I have considered jerry rigging a golf bag motorized unit.

Well it provides less risk of injury than a sling/messenger bag.
