    Filling those rainy days.

    So how have you been filling those rainy days? I've been making stuff.

    Some of my hammock building supplies, I currently have about 40 yards of random 1.1oz ripstops, some calendared, some not, ALL is $1.50 Wally World steals.





    My two year olds new hammock, just did this two nights ago. Turned out great, and fits under the little 5x7 Wally World tarp wonderfully.




    Hacked up Fosters pot, with a penny stove made out of 8oz cans, and a flashing wind screen. Boils 8oz of water in about 6 minutes, and runs for about 12.





    Some mesh fabrics for netting.


    Some kilt materials. I can't wait to use that thick wool/Poly blend material once I get kilt making dialed in!




    Kilt in Progress! I'm about 3 hours in, and still have about 3 hours of work left, liking it thus far!

    I've found all kinds of sturdy mesh fabrics in random patterns. If I decide to start making and selling them locally at the flea markets and such, some like that just might bring in some attention I otherwise wouldn't get. Hanging the Camo setup I made would likely have me covered up every time I set up at a flea market. I'm thinking about starting to do one hammock a night, then a tarp the next night, then every 3 to 4 weeks take em out to the flea market and sell em. If I make the right color combos I think I can make an extra few dollars to support my gear habit :P
