my favorite from last topic was "drop heavy item, pick up with cursor and start walking" which is especially helpful getting out of a cave or dungeon

since i'm playing a destro-mage I noticed you can really move a corpse along with a well-aimed blast, so I guess you could stuff a bear with all of your excess items and keep poking him down the road until you get close enough to town to "raise" him and walk in.

dragon carcasses can be launched a long way with fireball or firebolt, and can even be launched out of cities (not sure if you can launch one into a city)

alternatively, you could stuff a smaller animal, say a fox or rabbit, and pick it up with the cursor and actually run with it.

Since I myself try to get rich via alchemy before I start dungeon delving, I never had problem with that. I also only carry enchanted equipments that I don't know the effect and unique gears only. I still hoard jeweleries and arrow though.

I just pick up gems, jewelry, potions daggars, ores/ingots, etc and sell asap

I think every enchantment can be learned from daggers and jewelry and weigh little.

never had a prob with over encumbrance

Make some carry weight jewelry and use to get out and fast travel. Also potions if needed on top of the ring and necklace

I do use the blast the corpse moving technique occasionally as it means you are not actually encumbered when you do run into something else and it can be a bit funny like you are playing some sort of twisted golf.

It works best if you use two separate spells simultaneously as it moves the body further, and sticking to the roads is good as they are mostly flat. Placing and Ice spike in the corpse helps find it at night too.

Outside of Arvak the forward power attack is definitely better than dropping the heaviest item as a single item may not be enough to stop being encumbered and I have had the item vanish on occasion as well.

potions don't make sense fiscally: a 1/2 pound potion valued at a couple of hundred septims is much more valuable than the 20-50 pounds of junk it will allow you to haul back. for the same reason I almost never use scrolls: they're just to valuable in trade to use them for limited damage on bad guys
