We were forced to look for nooks to hook our poles to – it was very demanding physically. We ended up building two entirely different versions: one huge, heavy with thick scrap tires and planks and one light and dividable into four backpacks, perfect for taking into Manhattan via subway; which we did, too. We were surprised by the many areas with really useful scrap – a result of private enterprises, which have found a cheap way of hiding their waste – great for us, though.
