Keeping my obvious qualifications in mind, whence and wither are you transporting it. Hiking from a trailhead to your cabin, in which you will be living, might be considered transporting if you've lots of money and a good lawyer. Hiking from your car to your office - well, you better be well connected in a political sense.
I wouldn't carry a fanny pack, either. All that does is look dorky, and tell people how big a piece you are carrying. That was just the example in your link.
