Here is a simple one I have been using for a few years now. A sling for the ice auger. A guy could modify a gun sling or baggage sling or go high tech like I did and just bend out the hooks on a rubber bungie cord and hook one end to the handle of the auger and the other end near the blade. Throw it up over your shoulder and you have a extra free hand. You will be amazed at how far you can carry the auger this way with no discomfort to your shoulder. If you are on a long treck you might just want to sling it across your back.
Give this one a try out in the garage some night and I think you will see right away how simple and practcle this is.

This worked good for me until I recently bought an Eskimo shelter. When I started ice fishing with my two 3 year olds I struggled to carry their chairs, rods, snacks, Thermos, auger, etc. from the truck to the lake. I wondered how to make a lightweight sled until I stumbled on something dark in my garage. I have a cheap plastic toolbox that fits across my pickup bed that I used for only a month before getting a camper. I tied a rope in a loop on one end and all my gear fit in this sled that weighs little. It fits through the door of my camper but could still be used across the bed. I added downhill skis last year for a late trip on a lake whose road was long and often had long stretches of dirt and pulled it with snowmobiles. Held them on with angle strap material, unsure of proper name. I thought of running the rope through two pieces of PVC to make more of a rigid hitch.

heres one a made-up when money was tight a few years ago, I took a truck toolbox and made a filp style ice shack. after a few rebuilds it worked great, but if i did it now I'd getthe one that sat in the bottom of the truck and didn't hang off the sides.

I made a holder for my auger to ride on the front of my wheeler using scrap lumber I had in the garage. use a 1x8 and 2x2s. cut one peice of the 1x8 the width of the front rack, attached the 2x2s to both ends and then cut two peice of 1x8 attached them to the ends. looks like a really wide U. V the ends for the auger to rest it. bungee cord the thing down, sits tight with no movement. cost: about 50 cents for the screws.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
