    Walmart Dollar Bin Jackpot!!

    Alright - so I decided to drive home from Trail Days on Saturday, which took me past this little podunk Walmart. Not even a Super Walmart. Then I heard the Siren Song. Every logical thought in my head told me that this little shack wouldn't have any fabric...but some sixth sense kept telling me to pull over anyway. So I did. And bought 100 yards of ripstop - 1.1 and 1.9 oz, DWR and untreated, a few shades of silver and some OD green...JACKPOT!!

    Obviously I don't need all of this, but I grabbed it so I could offer up some chunks of it here for about what I bought it for. I'm still traveling so it'll be a few weeks before I can get to it...if I don't mention it by mid-June, somebody remind me.

    That's a lot of fabric. You must have a huge stockpile of fabric. You need to inventory it.

    I'm still fairly new to hammocking, but thanks for the preview of the encroaching symptoms of hammock making fever....

    I see there is no treatment.

    Oh, there are some perfectly good treatments. Some are waterproof/breathable, others are simply waterproof. But both are useful for feeding the DIY fever.

    Tim, it's looking like I'll make it to Hot Springs, but I might have to rent a cabin for the lady...hammocks seem to be a sticking point in our relationship but she'll come along if I get her a cabin. I still have permission to hammock with y'all though - my 11yo will probably sleep in the cabin with her and my 7yo will hammock with us.

    I won't be back home between now and then, but I might be able to talk her into bringing a few bolts when she drives up.
