Here I will show how to make and wear the Roycroft pack frame made famous in the bush-crafting community by the late Mors Kochanski. All you need is 3 sticks and a little bit of cordage to construct a sturdy frame to lash your gear to so you can comfortably, safely, and securely carry on to your next destination - into or out of the woods.
For this video I will show how to measure, notch and lash the frame together, in second video I show how to pack, and tie on the pack, and different strap-lashing variations, that I find useful.
