    welcome back MedicineMan. Trying to get home through weather ain't no fun at all. Stories I could tell from my sojourn in New Hampshire.

    Told you that waiting for ZQ to beakify your Ultra would be worth the wait Tremendous piece of kit.

    Grizz, outstanding work.

    You know you've got the right solution at last when it's clean and simple like this. I look forward to making a pair of my own. Really great job.

    Great production on this video! Now I have yet another piece of gear to lust after (the list is becoming obscene at this point )

    It seems like you could easily mod this into a decent pack cover.

    I like this! I have a Speer Winter tarp that can close off on the ends like the JRB but my problem is that my primary hammock is a Clark NX-250 which is very wide.

    The beak seems to be the fix for this problem!

    that's right near my favorite gear outfitter. scott at yeoldebackpacker. i actually just did that stretch a couple of weeks ago during a snow storm. the walk down into port clinton is brutal. i actually had quite a scare as i lost the blazes at a big clearing (fire break maybe) b/c the snow covered em up across this thing. it was dark and brrrr.

    i will be in touch
