Jerry’s awesome MYOG Silnylon Floorless 2-person tent (pyramid) article is no longer accessible. Here is the comment thread, but the link to the article is broken. Please fix! Thanks.Nov 7, 2020 at 8:56 am #3682807
Greg, There are a number of old great articles that they never fixed after they changed the site. I posted about wanting to see this one again a few years ago CRATER LAKE SNOWSHOE VIDEO ESSAY but they have never fixed it.Nov 7, 2020 at 10:39 am #3682820John S.BPL Member
Jerry prob has a copy of it he can send you.Nov 7, 2020 at 10:46 am #3682821
yeah, I’ll wait to see if they fix thisNov 7, 2020 at 10:49 am #3682822
Thanks for the info, Link. I remember that Crater Lake video–it was awesome! Hope we don’t lose all these classic posts forever.Nov 7, 2020 at 12:19 pm #3682834Nov 7, 2020 at 12:32 pm #3682836rubmybelly!BPL Member

NM. As usual, Link beats us all!Nov 7, 2020 at 1:20 pm #3682843
That article is still pretty much what I do, one small addition:
If you look at the first picture of the tent, you can see how the center of each side is raised in the air a bit. If you want it to be closer to the ground, make each side panel three inches longer.
If it’s windy, stuff will blow into the tent more.Nov 7, 2020 at 1:38 pm #3682846
I figured it out accidentally when I was just doing links for another question on another thread. I was linking articles LIGHTWEIGHT FOOTWEAR SYSTEMS FOR SNOW TRAVEL parts 1 2 and PART 3 is broken so decided to GOOGLE THE TITLE and it came up as the first link in my search. I showed this to my wife who does back end coding and she explained what was wrong
The long and the short is over multiple technical site changes links are broken. The major site links are working but many of your favorite forum links are still broken. These kinds of links are hard to trac and fix with a simple search and replace program and a real technical pain.
You could simply Google and find the new working link and repost or use INSPECT ELEMENT and to get the broken link , edit and fix and repost
You can find the older links in the page by using inspect element to get the broken link and copy and paste and edit out the non-working bits.
What is wrong with the links and how to fix:Nov 7, 2020 at 1:51 pm #3682850
Brilliant, Link! Thanks so much!Nov 7, 2020 at 1:56 pm #3682853
I work on oregonhikers.org
It changed from portlandhikers.com to portlandhikers.org to oregonhikers.org, and changed to different platforms
same thing – it broke a bunch of links, it takes a while to sort everything outNov 8, 2020 at 3:48 am #3682923
Jerry, thanks for the update on your design, and for such a helpful article!Dec 1, 2020 at 8:39 am #3686660
If you’re still following this, one other thing
The ridges on a mid stretch (because they’re on the bias)
When I sew on a strip of stiffer material, along each ridge, it makes the pitch much better in the wind. Less flapping. I don’t know if this is just aesthetic or withstands higher winds.
I used a 3 inch strip of the same fabric (along the grain). Fold it over three times to make it 1/2 inch wide, 6 layers. Sew along both edges. Then sew through the middle of this to the center of the ridge.
You could probably use 1/2 inch grosgrainDec 3, 2020 at 10:24 pm #3687197SIMULACRABPL Member

One person with a bot did that. It was annoying.

Jerry, I’m definitely still following! Thanks for the beta on the ridgeline strips, and the idea to use grosgrain. Several years ago I read (I think on hammockforums) about someone who made a grosgrain folding device for easy sewing out of a piece of a plastic salad greens box–fold it in half, then fold both edges in towards the middle. I’ve made one and found it super helpful for perfectly capturing seams within folded grosgrain. you just snuggle it up to the seam and pull more grosgrain out of the plastic as you sew. Easy to keep everything aligned.
