    Good advice. I have a couple of UQs already. I went to the ground this past weekend to appease my SO and realized that if I'm mountain camping, my 40F bag isn't going to cut it even in July.

    Adding a zipper to a sleeping bag

    I got a 20F bag years ago for a trip only to find out it didn't have a zipper, and is just a tube. Very light, very warm, no ventilation. The past weekend has taught me that I'm in need of something...

    I'm totally going to necro this thread (which only seems appropriate as a fan of HP Lovecraft). But here is a photo of the finished tarp! It was done a couple of weeks ago, but I finally got to use...

    MikekiM, wow! Thank you so much for your detailed explanations. It really helps a lot.

    Good to know, I was initially leaning toward the minifly because I didn't feel like dealing with pullouts.



    Yeah, they've convinced me to go with large, "door"ed tarp. I may even go the DIY...

    I actually live out here. Arkham, MA is a literary reference. I'm hoping to do a few weekend trips this summer mixing camping and trail building/maintenance with a local organization.




    Do you...

    Thanks for all the suggestions! Apparently the consensus is "get a tarp with doors." So that I might just do!



    Because for some reason I'm more terrified of sewing a tarp than a hammock....

    I'm not planning on camping through a hurricane, but the mountains in CO have been known to get some good storms at times. I guess I'm looking for a tarp for the majority of the time it's nice but...

    Weight isn't an issue. Out of curiosity I just did some comparing and current tarp weighs as much as a lightweight winter tarp. I'm not complaining, it was all I could afford at the time and it got...
  10. Rain & Wind Protection: Minifly vs "doors"

    I'm in the market for a new tarp. I've been considering several options and I'd love to hear what you lovely people have to say.

    What I have: A cheap tarp from Amazon. There's nothing wrong with...

    I think the stand will have to do for the moment. My next abode will be fairly short-term so the stand is probably best.

    I stated in my original post that I'm looking into the Byer of Maine...

    Thanks for all the replies! I'll definitely play around with different pillows to see what works.

    As for the stand, I don't think anything more than 10' will be feasible, at least not for the...

    Thanks for the response.

    How long should the stand be? I'm going to have cramped quarters for a while so that's about all I can use.

    On the ridgeline I'm still new, and not entirely sure where...
  14. Thinking of going full time, have a few questions.

    I'm thinking of switching to sleeping in a hammock when I move into my new place, and I have some questions.
    First, my (planned) setup): Byer of Maine Paradiso Double with this stand. I'm thinking...
