Wallyworld, Bass Pro and others, sell tent pole repair kits that have white shock-cord.
The rotary cutter is the way to go. I'll NEVER go back to scissors!! Laser was out of my price range!
Welcome from yet another Kentuckian.

Mailed the dvd to Pithy this afternoon.
Watched Jazilla's copy today. Lots of food for thought. Thanks all!
PMed Pithy so as to pass this along to the next in line.
Haven't seen anyone mention this before, I used to use a large dog food bag split open and washed. Material is similar to the material in a cheap poly tarp. Just as loud as tyvek :rolleyes::rolleyes:
I made a "Risk" style drape-over bugnet. Pockets for trail sticks or stones. Thought was it could be trimmed and attached later if it failed. Still loose:) I also like going topless when bugs are not...
I was thinking about coming on Thursday and checking out the pine grove we stumbled upon last year, but 300 year old ham (18th century) in the hollow sounds mighty good!:drool:
I added a SMALL length of elastic band on the hem to store the bundled line.
"empty" box section:mad: at my walmart

Might be a good idea to post on this thread a read-only spreadsheet with all our orders to refresh old memories :):) as "I have slept since then":lol:
What size should we be using on 1.1 and 1.9 ripstop?
I think my needle "might" need replacing, made a popping noise when "injecting" my last project, a poly covered fleece and IX top-quilt.:lol:
I voted "sometimes".
I like what-ever outdoors I can get. My wife and I rv camp with family, I canoe camp in the Boundary Waters with the fishing "guys", and I backpack with friends when I can....
Thanks for heading this up Opie.

try the diy sil coating some have mentioned. Some have had good results.
I voted 40's. Not much experience....using an early model IX with 2 layers and insultubes. One week canoe trip to Boundary waters. One night low was 41, slept well with the IX, light weight poly long...
I have left-over underlayment, and have checked both or local stores, all I can find has polyethylene on one side. This makes it much heavier and non-breathable. Anybody find some without?
I use tailors chalk from the fabric shop. But as to sharpening soapstone, my metal work remembrance was to use the side of the bench grinder wheel.
Very nice report. Thanks for sharing. Two of my favorites BWCA and hammocks.
We had more wind on our sixth day, Mid June trip, than we have ever seen in many years going up there.????
I like pictures. Check out this thread.

Iron the folded gross grain b4 attaching. ;)
Sounds like a great trip! How did that new quilt work? Temps at night? Lookin to replicate your pattern in an IX double layer UQ.
My tarp out of Urethane coated rip performed fine in a torrential rain on a canoe camping trip. Hey it is still only about 1 lb more than sil;). I seam sealed with a water based urethane coating not...

Way to go RP! With the Kentucky Living Magazine going to so many homes many more of us Kentuckians will be initiated into good outdoor slumber. Way to "Hang".
You have received some very good advice...
