    - Finish my workshop (foundation poured and oak beams milled, so far)
    - Refine hammock sock/tent design (in progress)
    - Next generation of insulated hammocks (v, 0.7? or so); getting close to something worth fabricating in the workshop and distributing
    - Right angle hammock(s); continuing v. 0.2, starting 2-person model
    - Cuben UQ for Cloud Hammock from BER, then one for the Cirrus
    - testing 2 pulks (in progress); start on v. 0.3
    - cuben hammock (insulated)
    - gallon bucket stove (in progress)
    - modular campfire grill / reflector oven for winter camping
    - refine tensegrity stove stands (easier assembly, more durable)

    That's all I have going right now, but ideas keep popping up.

    Still new at injecting thread

    I'll be starting off with the easy/small stuff then working my way up. Currently working on a peak bag and a 2nd set of Triangle-Thingies.

    Next will be a gear hammock/chair combo thanks to the great video "SteelerNation" posted. (thanks Duane)

    Also need to add more tieouts on my tarp and eventually hope to try my hand at an Insultex UQ for my 12yr old son.

    Thanks to Dave for making me feel that much more inadequate. Btw, if anyone gets to see any of Dave's (WV) creations make sure to take notes. He has some very swank ideas.
