    gat dern stuff sack

    So my double ended hammock stuff sack is being a real pain in the butt. Somehow the line got untied and it slipped through the cinch and all the way out of the sack. I took twenty minutes and put it back in, but I forgot to tie the two strings together at the end so the end wouldn't slide out. What do you know, it did it again... and I think that I lost the little cincher too. Blast

    When I swapped one of the cord locks on my double ended stuff sack for a yellow one (head end) I retied the knots on the line with a nice fat figure 8 so they are less likely to slip out.

    Put a safety pin on the end of the line and fish it through using the pin. It'll fly through there pretty fast.

    These young-uns never had the PJs that Grandma made with the fabric drawstrings.....you learned the safety pin method early!

    Detail... fold the end of the drawstring about 3/4" and put the safety pin at the fold. That reduces or virtually eliminates the problem of having the end fray as you work it through.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
