Got this'n on the calendar!
You'll get it done, given your approach. Color coding the tendons of the same length is a good idea.
You still need a winch of some kind to tighten the last tendon you attach.
I might be able to make it... gotta wait and see what me schedule turns out to be.
Yeah, poles would be in the way... the sock top wouldn't make it over them.
A custom top would make it work. The bottom will fit fine. You could send me the nylon cover pieces that come with the...
Sorry! I should get three 9' aluminum poles, fabricate three unions, and make the final Tensegrity Stand.
The X Tensegrity Stand was made with 8' poles, and that is a bit short.
The 9' poles...
Hey, ya'll... Smiling Face and I enjoyed this weekend a lot! Thank you!
...for me too. :(
Try a Canvas Hammock Sock when it's real cold, blowin' hard and snowin', and you'll really appreciate the superior wind-proof and breathable attributes of canvas. If it's gonna stay below 20*F, I...
Yes! That's what I use.
I got a few I can tell while yer composin', Hickery!
I'm in, too!
Now I gotta read the thread. :lol:
Smiling Face and I will be attending!
I guess I need to read through this thread now...
We might bring a few items to add to the raffle, in addition to what we've already donated.
That's great, Jeremy!
(You sure have large feet...)
My knee is killing me, but all I have to do is read one of your posts and I feel better. You're an inspiration!
I'd be worried if I hadn't seen CB hamming it up on Shug's video...
as Ken said, hard to corner a rat. ;)
Those Gorge Rats get a big thumbs up for handling a bad situation well...
I'm gonna visit Jeremy sometime soon.
BTW, according to DarkByrd's annotations, Jeremy fell down the hypoteneuse of a...
...jk! thanks fer the kind words!
I haven't updated the web site yet, but Gear Boxes are now made with dark green 1.1 Polysil ripstop, and weigh only 4.0 oz.
When I run out of the core-less parachute cord that I'm using with Gear...
I used 1.0 Robic to make a Molly Mac Gear Hammock Sock today for a young fellow who will spend the summer in Alaska...
it finished at exactly 10.0 oz!
A 1.4 silnylon Woodland Camo Gear Box comes...
So, if'n ya know yer a cold sleeper, ask for our Custom MMG Climashield APEX (TM) 4.4... ;)
it has twice the amount of insulation as APEX 2.2, and
according to that chart, it will get ya to 30*F......
The variability between Temp Ratings and people's comfort levels is why lotsa folks are reluctant to do any ratings at all.
I don't think it would be inappropriate to call Klipspringer (formerly...
My daughter and I have done it on a regular basis... I guess that reinforces your point, eh? ;)
I'm not saying that's a "rating" at all... freezing is a limit, in my view.
Some will reach it in...
Pictures really don't convey the gossamer feel to the Momentum10 fabric.
Momentum10 Baby Orca
Haven't made any using 1.0 Robic outer layer yet...
figure it will add about an ounce to each of the weights in the OP (which are Momentum10 only).
I'm also going to use 1.1 SilPoly for Gear Boxes.
Climashield Apex 2.2 means it's nominally 2.2 oz per yard.
It's about 3/8" to 1/2" loft.
I don't like to use higher loft Climashield insulation because then it becomes hard to pack.
We find that...
Just made a Shamu, a Baby Orca and a Top Blanket using 0.66 Momentum10 nylon taffeta.
All were made with Climashield APEX (TM) 2.2 which is good to freezing or below, depending on how hot you sleep....
I thought it was interesting that Alaska and The NorthWest Territory are two teams that go by their own name,
instead of their country's name.
Makes sense to me!
Here's young Cole winning Silver in the Snowshoe Biathlon,
wearing Molly Mac Gear Mukluks... gotta be the shoes!
And here is Helen at the start of the 2.5K which she won
This particular fabric is hard to find.
Everything else in Woodland Camo that is called "breathable" has DWR coating and a slick, hard finish.
Un-Calendered makes it soft.
Un-Coated makes it...
Today two members of Team Alaska start competition in the Biathlon at the Arctic Winter Games, in Greenland, wearing Molly Mac Gear Mukluks!
Load lifters don't do much for you with a Molly Mac Pack. They were used to mount the Front Pack, but that was complex.
The stays work well when longer. However, the key to loading a Molly Mac...
You are entyrely welcome!
Got me thinking about supplementing UQs...
If you have a Shamu and a Top Blanket, the best supplement is the Top Blanket. Put it inside the Shamu, and use your sleeping bag as a Top Blanket....
At one point I thought that a warm Top Blanket made a bigger difference than a UQ. In other wods, if they are both the same rating, the Top Blanket will keep you warmer with just a little supplement....
Are you a cold sleeper?
If so, you might not be comfy at freezing.
But you can do better than a pad for supplement.
A kids sleeping bag over your feet and legs works well.
A down vest also...
The original Molly Mac Gear Hammock Sock with SEEP was an insulated sock... I've used them a lot. However, I do not prefer them. I like to keep the sock separate from the insulation. The only problem...
This Molly Mac Gear Hammock is 11' long and almost 60" wide. It's made with 1.9 oz ripstop, so it will hold a heavy fella, even though it's a single layer. The suspension is simply 10' of...
I have one hung in my guest bedroom... I'll see if I can get a good picture tomorrow.
Still on sale... might just continue this sale too, and call it a Spring Gear Box Sale!
I still have a few of these.
At $50, it leaves plenty of moola for you to put toward insulation.
Which you'll need today!
It's 16*F out there!
Still on sale... might just continue this sale and call it a Spring Sale!
Just to reiterate... the standard Top Blanket should take a warm sleeper below freezing with no trouble.
The issue is how warm or cold you sleep.
I'll double the insulation for $50 more.
Glad you like it!
When it's real windy, and you don't block the wind with a tarp, you can put the SEEP to windward, so it blows under the sock instead of out away from the sock. You can also pull...
Shortly afterwards, I made them all permanently expanded.
Since fit isn't critical in a sock, it doesn't matter if the bottom is a real loose fit.
They are still "fitted" but they are a real loose...
Rat, those are great suggestions!
I have several gathered end hammocks at a bargain price.
They are not on the web site, so just send an email inquiry if you want one.
green ripstop 1.9 oz
110" lash-it ridgeline,...
You can hang 'em under yer hammock, draggin' the ground... won't hurt a thing or get the contents wet or dirty.
You can hang 'em alongside yer hammock... all is accessible while you are in yer...
The user's waist size is just to avoid extra webbing... it's easily lengthened.
Most belts have a 30" padded MOLLE array. Some are shortened by a couple of inches for narrow waisted people.
Send yer address to MacEntyre@Yahoo.com and I'll mail ya a couple of fathoms!
It'll be a bit lighter than the rope ya have on it now.
