    Because Bend has slightly colder temperatures, we add socks to our sandals (or at least I do). Once, my partner heard someone mention my socks with sandals in disdain. So when they joined us for Art...

    I'm another fan of huge x large size. I want to cover more area than just the hammock. To be fair, I kayak more than backpack so weight is not so much an issue for me. My next tarp will be the...

    I can't imagine a 3 inch piece of wooden dowel to be that much heavier than aluminum tubing. Easy to drill a hole in the dowel for a keeper cord. But these days I'll be trying the "biner in the...
