Off Topic: Modified Komatik for ski trip

I believe I posted images of the komatik I built a couple of years ago. I built it to carry my gear during a wilderness x-c ski trip that I went on with Ken Sutherland and company. During the trip, I experienced several roll-overs with the sled because it was too long for some of the tight curves along the ski trail. I will be joining Ken and Co. for their annual bonding boys ski trip again and decided to try to do some modifications to the sled to avoid the tipping problems. I could have purchased a plastic thingy which would probably work well but I wanted to build: so I built. The link takes you to my FB album where you can peruse the commentary that goes with the images.
