The subject of post fall vehicles has come up and, to provide balance, here are some thoughts on travelling light. Pros: if you can't carry it do you really need it? I would argue no, you probably don't. If you look at soldiers pre mechanisation (for example Napoleonic times) supply chains were notoriously unreliable and most average foot soldiers carried what needed and foraged the rest. Hedgerow food is easily available and abundant during the "growing" season. In the UK water shortages are never going to be an issue. Shelter is easily constructed or acquired. I would therefore argue that four three out of four seasons living as an itinerant has many advantages. Cons: If you have little each item takes on slightly more importance than if you have many items. A broken axe haft could be a real problem. If you are a shooter and travel light your ammo would be restricted by weight. You would also have to be reasonably self disciplined, make shelter and fire each day as priority etc. Anybody got any thoughts on this?
