    making stuff

    Hey yall,

    I put a ridgeline on my hammock. made a pop can stove. made a pocket for my ridgeline. and now im wondering what else i can make. looking for some suggestions.

    i have most of a tarp leftover from where i made the pocket. its nylon and about 8' by 9' left. what should i make out of it?

    Or any random LOW COST DIY things i should do while i have some time off work?

    How about some tarp skins or a ridgeline organizer or a peak bag for the hammock?

    ok guys i think i can do it this way. i know the rope isnt up to standard to say the least, but i wanted to make it before i used real rope to make sure it was how i wanted it. i think it turned out fine. really good actually! im going to add some kind of rope and try it all out as soon as i can! and like i said any ideas would be very grateful! thanks!

    get someone you trust (a lot!) to feel around for air gaps while you lie in the hammock. The bag should be snug up to the hammock body in all places.
