So that is $40 savings and it would take me a long time to sew a tarp. It would be worth the $40 to have Brandon make it. It also leave me more time to sit around and eat pie. I like pie.
Yeah, I'm a little surprised myself. Well, I am aiming for as close to 100% DIY as I can get. Considering the time spent making the equipment, most everything I make is more expensive than store bought stuff. But with SpinnUL, it just hurts too much to pay $158.59 for 8 yards from thru-hiker (including shipping to SC) when a complete tarp is the same price.
