I finally finished my MacCat/BlackCat-inspired tarp last night. It came out better than I thought. Thank you again to everyone here who helped out. As usual, it wouldn't be half as good without you.
Anyway, when setting it up today, I realized that the SG tarp I'd been using was the last piece of my shelter gear that I bought. Which makes my hammock setup now completely homemade: hammock, suspension, tarp, underquilt, top quilt, bug sock.
I never had it as a conscious goal, but it gave me a boost thinking about it. How about everyone else? Already only rolling your own, half and half, not interested?
It's got me thinking about giving that backpack another go...
