    Talking Who wants to be my friend? DIY mania!

    I just moved into my new home and I didn't have internet for 4 days. So, with a mixture of boredom and my bud's birthday coming up, I figured I should start making him some gear so he can hit the trail in style.


    First up, I made him a Silnylon tarp. It's basically a Big mamajamba clone as I literally traced out the shape from one I had hear in my house.



    Next is an underquilt filled with 12 oz of down and made with a snazzy looking coyote brown fabric I got from DIY gear supply (puppy not included)



    Finally, I whipped up some snake skins, a ridgeline organizer and a hammock too.

    And here is Kiba the wonder pup and I having fun with some new stuff.



    Now time to make some bugnets! Thanks for checking out my photos!

    I figure he put in 21 years of friendship in our 27 years of life. He earned it.

    Thanks a lot dude. Once I figured out how to make one it has been pretty easy since. I just need to figure out how to make a top quilt now.
