Travellers With Knapsack.

The traveller on the left appears to be using a large snapsack, whilst his companion on the right has indeed got a knapsack. Note the live food provisions on top of the snapsack, or is he going to market?

True Gorges. Perhaps we should add live chooks to the list of "bug-out"
supplies. We get eggs as well if we want.
I bet those Russian peasants wished they had some chooks!
