Re: Costco Down Throws (80 of them!) $30/each or $25 each for 3 or more.

I was there at my Sam's Club today and picked up two more, they are now marked down to 14.91. Previously they were 19.00 or so... They are smaller in length than the costco ones, I believe, but for that price...now I need a snap kit!

Re: Mora knives !!! Question.

Just grab a bastard file, clamp your blade so that the back of it is exposed about 1/8 to 1/4" in a vise, and just run several strokes across it. Give it a test scratch on your ferro rod, and see if it will throw sparks, if not, repeat. I did the same to mine, but I'm at work...so sorry no picture. ...

I busted my sewing machine, so it's in the shop. $50 deposit, DIY ain't so cheap!

Re: Snugpak Jungle Blanket $24.50

I picked 4 of these up from Christmas gifts, one for me, and 3 for the kids. We have used them around the house as lounge blankets, and at grandma's house for spending the night. I have to agree that this vastly superior to the poncho liner, mainly for me because of the length being longer. I want a...

Re: Holster Ridgeline Organizer - The project that turned me off to the 'other' site...

I like your plans and the idea. I wonder if using a heavier weight material, such as Cordura, could help with keeping the holster section stiffer? I have used your "outline method" to tighten up the fit of one of those cheaper holsters for my firearm. Take it easy, glad to have you on hammockhangers...

I second Uncle Mike; I listened to this one on the way to Fairfield. I did not realize the Yukons are now made in the USA. Thanks for doing great shows, guys.

Re: Structural Ridgeline

Yeah, I was going to recommend Papa Smurf's video:-) I tend to reach up and strum my ridgeline and see what sort of bass fiddle noises I can make out of it. I have an adjustable ridgeline in my main camping hammock out of zing it. I need to make it permanent though, because it can slip a bit if I'm ...

Re: First DIY UQ Jungle Blanket - hand sewn

Good project!

If you're going to the Fairfield Hang, let me know, I have a pretty large roll of heavier shock cord I can give you what you need. Got to keep that DIY cost down :-)

I'll add another verse, that I have engraved inside my wedding band: I Peter 3:7 "Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered."

Bluegill, There are no easy answers to your tough problems. Believe me, I've been there, with the arguing and ultimatum delivering. You certainly have to watch out when you get to that point, but if you do, there is always a returning point. I tend to conflict with my wife over my different "hobbies...
