I have only been able to find Sylnylon only once. I use the dwr and uncoated for all sorts of projects (I am Scoutmaster for a local Boy Scout Troop). I have had a hard time deciding what to use the 10 yds. of syl for. I just can't bring myself to cut it.

    A tarp is probably one of the best uses for sil. And you've got just the right amount to make a BlackCat Tarp.

    Hooch. You suck

    I was just in that WM the other day and came up empty. I did see some DWR polyester rip stop at the Nicholasville Rd WM Thursday. I passed on it so maybe it's still there.

    Good score man.

    Score!!, Round 2

    I went for a day hike at RRG today and on the way back to town, I stopped in at the 2 other Wally Worlds with fabric departments. The Northside store had squat, not a daggone thing. Nicholasville Rd Wal-Mart was a different story. I left with 12 more yards of silver-gray sil. That's da bomb! I've got a total of 23 yards of sil at home now. HC, after the holidays you're gonna have to help me find something to do with all this sil. I'm thinking a tarp a BB Sack and snake skins maybe. I'll buy the beer (I got hooked on Sam Adams Cherry Wheat) and bring some sil for you, too if you want it.

    Edit: The Richmond Rd. Wally-World has a ton of what appears to me to be 19. DWR in the same silver-gray color, maybe a little darker, in case you're interesed

    Yet, another Score!

    Hooch, good ole buddy, you musta brought me good luck. I stopped in my WalMart today, and after a year + of constant checking, I finally scored some dark silver gray Sil. I got 12 yard and was so excited. Of course once again my wife thinks I'm a freak. I was talking to the girl that works in that department and she said she has seen it in there before but it goes pretty quick. I gave her my card and asked if she would call me anytime they got more in and she said she would. I kinda doubt it though.

    So now, maybe a winter tarp is in order. I just finished my RMS Clone last night. I'll try to get some pics tomorrow and add them to that thread.

    So where's that dancing banana when you need him?

    Glad I could be of assistance. I agree, we need to start an online petition to the mods and administrator to add the dancing banana to HF.
