Well, now I have gone and done it… Been lurking here for the last week or two. Watched some Shug vidz which I must say are not just packed full of great information but are high-larious too!! All that has lead to the purchase of a sewing machine, a bunch of nylon fabric and super late nights trying to teach myself to sew and figure out how to make my own gear. Mind you, I had not ever considered even attempting to use a sewing machine before but that is all over. I jumped right in without looking back and now I have my very own DIY hammock, tarp and a couple stuff sacks!!! The next order of business is to get out and see how it works.
So far this has been a fantastic resource and looks like I have a whole new addiction ( I mean "hobby") to get into… Thanks to all you members out there that make this place so inviting and easy to learn. Hope to see ya on the trail some time!
