    I'm not knocking it. After all, that's all that was available back then.

    I know we totally got off topic, but Marines are Marines, no matter what generation. Semper Fi!

    I've never seen another branch where two people can meet, never knowing eachother or having ever met, but talk like they are old high school buddies just because they were in the same branch.

    Of course, that's what we were talking about. Why would you think otherwise?

    Yep. Semper Hamicus, (Always hammocking). Can't wait to try out my new quilt these next couple fo weeks. Of course the dang thing takes up 1/3 of my pack. I guess I went a little overboard on the width.

    Never too late to alter the width...glory of DIY gear.

    Yeah, but I'm too lazy. Plus it looks too good now, and I know that if I take it apart to fix something won't work out like it did the first time. It really isn't too bad. It will easily wrap around my sides in the hammock, and for the really super cold nights I can fold it in half and have 6" loft. Just put a pad and some other stuff under me to go with the underquilt. Plus if I ever have to sleep in a shelter it will be very cozy. Just bunch it up all around me and make a little blanket fort. Except girls are allowed in my forts.

    This seems like a good idea. Maybe you should quilt it before adding the final top stitching. But I like the idea.

    This just shows the inadequacy of a home sewing machine on outdoor gear. I really wish someone would make a buffed up home machine complete with walking foot, long arm, and only two stitches: zigzag and straight.
