For some reason the book title “The Things They Carried" (by Tim O'Brien) hopped into my mind when I was thinking about the challenge for Toads.

It is also a different kind of challenge to carry something very delicate or to carry something secretly. And then there are the things animals carry.

|Hikers carry all kinds of things|
|Many ways to carry things|
|What stories and memories might these men carry?|
