    Scored!

    I was in the supply closet at work and noticed something that I could use. It's rubber tubing that we use when we set up automatic traffic counters...STL's!!! So I talked to one of my buddies who deals with the stuff all the time and asked him if he had any extra to spare. He's like "dude, we have miles of that stuff.". So he brings me over like 75-100 feet of it and tells me he can get me more any time. Looks like I got something new to try when I get home!

    How's the stretch on that stuff? Could make awesome tarp tensioners, or fire starter/signalling fodder, or tubing for a DIY Gravity filter system, or heavy duty UQ suspension, or, or, or....

    3 or 4-foot section to use for blowing air when starting your campfires. You don't have to crouch over, inhale smoke, blow ash into your own face....
