    I've been busy

    Some DIY projects I have finished. This is an SPE for my Wally World ccf pad.

    Fronkey's bugnet on the GT Ultralight. Whoopie sling adjustable ridgeline and a stuff sack for hammock and bugnet.


    Python skin for my Kelty Noah 12 tarp. Made from some tulle.

    Somebody stop me! I'm becoming Martha Stewart.

    How much of a bury did you use on your adjustable ridgeline? I used 8-10" (guesstimating), and I have a lot of issues with it loosening automagically.

    BTW, nice gear

    I only made the bury 4". I used braided mason line, and it has not slipped at all. If yours is slipping at 8", something is not right. I am not an expert on whoopie slings, but check and see if the bury is "milked" properly. Maybe one of the experts here can chime in.

    People have snapped paracord and even Hennessy ridge lines. Braided masons line is probably not up to the task. Not that there's any real consequence if it does fail.
