Title: Prototype of the Modular Equipment Transporter (MET)
A prototype of the Modular Equipment Transporter (MET), nicknamed the 
"Rickshaw" after its shape and method of propulsion. This equipment was
used  by the Apollo 14 astronauts during their geological and lunar surface 
simulation training in the Pinacate volcanic area of northwestern Sonora, 
Mexico. The Apollo 14 crew will be the first one to use the MET. It will be
a  portable workbench with a place for the lunar handtools and their
carrier,  three cameras, two sample container bags, a Special Environmental
Sample  Container, spare film magazines, and a Lunar Surface Penetrometer.
