What exactly did you do to reduce the weight of your fan?

I finally found some time to post a few pics. They are in the other hammock accessory gallery.
...and there came to be a day, all too soon, that I became aware that I could travel no more on my long journey. Though I did not arrive where I had planned, I believe that here is exactly where I am supposed to be...
Thanks for the pics! It's amazing when you look at the starting, then the ending weights; nice work.
You could always wire up 4 AA/AAA's in a series for the usb fan. It would slightly increase the output of the fan, and depending on what type of battery you use, would probably increase the fan's run time decently. There would realy be no need for th usb connection, so personally, I would remove it and just put in a lightweight switch.
The foam blades would probably be a little more effecient, since they most likely, have a much smaller rotational inertia.
for the last 2 yrs i have been using a inclosed fan that was designed to wear around your neck...it is basicaly a bird cage idea and it puts out lots of air..the big advantage to me is it rund all night on aa batteries...plus it puts the air out in a sort of up and right pattern...i hang it fro mmy ridge line in my hh and it blows cool air down ward from my feet al the way to my head...i have even on several occasions had to shut it off during the night cause it was doing so well i got cold...got it at wally world for 3 bucks i think..
