Trav­el­ing Light

Outdoor Life - - THE ROAD WARRIORS -

As with cool­ers, there are plenty of ex­pen­sive, over­built, and ob­scenely heavy ken­nels on the mar­ket th­ese days. Lak­so­nen skips them in fa­vor of th­ese light­weight models from Ruff Land (formerly Ruff Tough). “They don’t make the best ken­nel, but they cer­tainly make the best for what I need,” says Lak­so­nen, who prizes porta­bil­ity. He can reach over the side and lift the boxes out of the bed, then re­lo­cate them to a mo­tel room or porch and back again with min­i­mal ef­fort. It doesn’t hurt that the crates are of­ten a cou­ple hun­dred bucks cheaper too.
