There is an article and a nice drwawing of building what looks like a very rugged pulk at www.telemarktips.com. Currently I just use rope to pull the sled, so i would be interested how it turns out for you.

You don't need plans.

5 buddies and I just made sleds we will be using to cross the Boundary Waters Canoe Area next month. It simple:

1) buy a 6 foot plastic "The Beast" sled. You can get at Menards, Home Depot, etc. $17.

2) At a Home Depot type store buy:
- 2 - 8' foot 3/4 inch aluminum poles
- 1 - 2' piece 1/4" steel rod
- 1 - 2' piece 1/4" x 3" flat aluminum

Sorry- hit wrong button.

Get a buddy with a drill press. Drill holes in the steel rod so you can out in a "Jesus clip". Drill tru the sled about 5 inches back from the front so the steel rod runs thru it. Drill holes in the alum poles to take the steel rod. Attach the alum plate about 5 feet up the poles. Then all you need to do is but some 2 inch webbing, buckle, and d-rings. Put eyebolts thru the other end of the pole and then just clip into the d rings with carabiners. Or just clip it into your daypack shoulder straps.

Its easy with a drill press and some common sense. You might have $40 in it when done.
