Thanks for the report.
I noticed those on ebay as well. Any pictures of your work? Any idea of weight and stuff size?
I currently use a synthetic mummy bag as my tq and it is way to heavy and bulky.
Great report and good times.
I was wondering how the roads were? Do the FS roads stay open year round?
it's a great place
Check out the govt surplus site govliquidation.com. There are sewing machines on there in WA, PA, GA, VA. Singers, Juki, Chandlers, and consews. Looks like the min bid is $150.
I don't think I have seen it mentioned in this thread, but it pops up quickly in others.
"Hang your own hammock" I am not using this here, just bringing up the fact that no one has used it.
what do you think of adding the PE foam as the insulation layer. Couple free PE with a cheap PL could give you a low cost UQ.
I need to find my local surplus store. One I visited...
Welcome jpvjr! There are some pretty knowledgeable folks around here. And very helpful too.
I assume you are talking about a hammock. The easiest diy hammock I know of is the gathered end...
This is the smallest I have used. It is a sierra designs tent footprint. I strung it over my eno double and fashioned a ugly bug net over the top.
I was really shocked when it came a downpour...
i think i am going to butcher a sleeping bag. I think it would be easier for me.
nice trip. bet the boys had fun. Did the uq cover you completely or did you uncovered feet?
any sticky tree straps?
That was great. It should be big Henry's book.
Awesome bike too. I will have to read your other stories now.
Tonight is the first time I noticed this thread. This would have been great for my nephew's setup. I was thinking of ease of setup for him. I may make one like this and "reclaim" the larger 10x10...
kk, where was the fraying? in the constrictor or the eyes? Wonder if a thimble in the eye would slow wear in the eye?
good luck trafton
I saw a little camera that came with a waterproof box at ALDI's. $50 for 5.1mpix. Not sure of the manufacturer.
Or you can sit, drool, and try to roll your own(do it yourself)
would the stove be too hot to drop the sides down lower? a set of doors and at least the windward side dropped down would be mighty toasty.
beautiful pictures and glad you enjoyed it.
I think the goal was to just survive in the wild for 3 months. Part of his living an "extraordinary" life.
He appears to sleep in his sleeping bag with most of his clothes and no...
I saw it on Natgeo. It is a show about a fella taking off alone into the Yukon wilderness for three months. A true long term campout. He does have a woodland camo tarp and hammock with bugnet. ...
the complete setup. verynice. enjoy the nap, you earned it!
Nice setup and beautiful location.
wow. i am impressed. superclean, I want to make one of those as well
extremely nice job for the first diy
Strong work! Handcrafted by Love.
i look forward to seeing your creation. the large tarp, teepee with stove insert is tempting.
Nice, glad you guys had fun.
Three ways to burn. Choices are good on the trail.
HA, I did forget to mention that he walked out to the hammock with a piece of cake in his hand that had lots of blue icing.
Maybe we can sneak away over Thanksgiving for a hanging session in the...
Looks good and I have no idea about your question.
I have thought about running a piece of tubing around the amstel to reduce wear, but do not have any on hand now.
My nephew is turning nine and just joined the cub scouts. He loves playing outdoors. I made him a gathered end hammock last year, but he lost it somewhere.
So, for this birthday I made him a...
You guys have convinced me to go a different route.
Dutch: pm sent. A huge thanks.
LR, thanks but I have some too. Guess I am switching now.
Thanks for the thoughts guys.
it may had fallen down, but it was definitely over the knot. The carbon "appears" stronger than the alum. but who knows. I will keep testing it out.
We went for a short hike around Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield, GA, had lunch and hung the hammock for a short rest.
The hammock is a ENO double with whoopie slings, tree straps, and carbon fiber...
Your new fulltime job?
Looks good. Do you think it's any lighter than the regular ripstop.
You have been busy.
I think it's an awesome idea. wink, wink. Glad you got something worked out. Looks good!
I searched, but to no avail.
Digging up an older one:
I like the idea and good thinking on getting the wraps on both ends of loop.
how long should each end be buried?
These turn out beautiful. I better not try it though. Looks like it would be one big fluffy white disaster.
I am a bit dense, but do you have to sew the baffles to both 'shells', outside pieces?
I am in a financial spot right now and stuff has to be really cheap for me to look at it. And super cheap for me to buy (almost free).
Yeah, I did not know his down was that cheap. It might...
LR, thanks. Kinda what I thought. Those standards cut both ways.
Just, yesterday I ran across a "down" pillow that was damaged and on sale. The tag said fill weight 24oz and 75% down/25%...
how did the uq come out?
How do you figure what percentage the down is by the fill? or What percentage feathers/down is there in a certain fill?
I was thinking the same as the OP about possibly borrowing already used...
I like it!
Thanks for using the map for narrations. Made me feel like I was there with you. Ya'll moved a long gorge ways.
Welcome. Great folks here.
