    What Next?

    Hey Everybody,
    I will admit that I have officially caught the DIY bug; however, I'm not sure exactly how to continue. I recently finished my first hammock ( a basic double, gathered end hammock), and I ordered some material to make a tarp. What would you guys recommend as a next project? I don't have a lot of money to play with right now, but I would love to have a new project to look forward to. I'd probably be looking to make something such as an underquilt or maybe even a pod, basically something for more insulation. I'd appreciate any input for a good DIY project.
    Thanks!
    -Nelson

    i'd probably make an UQ because you can use a sleeping bag right now for a TQ or maybe a bugnet

    awesome. Well, if you've got the tarp all lined up when the fabric gets in, how about some some organisational stuffs? Stuff sacks and compression sacks. Custom pockets for cordage and equipment ect. Best part of diy is its all up to you

    Thanks, I think I'll try making some stuff sacks! I saw some pictures of sacks that open on both sides to make setting up easier, so I think I may try that!
