(CNN) - There's the piggy-back and the "Estonia carry." Both are techniques for a contest where participants get carried away.

In case of emergency, could you carry your spouse? How about carrying her over a log and up a hill. Through a mud hole and over a sand hill?

It's the North American Wife Carrying Championship held at the Sunday River Ski Resort in Maine, and though there are a couple of newlyweds, you don't even have to be married. You can pretty much carry or drop anyone.
