Gaiters, tarp, or tent?

I know you didn’t ask, but this is the classic that came out of the closet many, many years ago –

I’ve always wondered what was involved in creating those images.
Thanks for a great “tour”.Nov 8, 2020 at 4:58 pm #3682987
“tension … makes the net self supporting.”
Think of a “wire/rod/stiffener” sewn into the edge of a circle.
Fold it in half and “reduce” the excess fabric opposite the fold to suit your needs.Nov 4, 2020 at 9:21 pm #3682412

If you are using a stealthy low power red LED headlamp you may not be able to see red non-reflective cord.
I suggest a night time test with the specific cord and headlamp you would use.Oct 24, 2020 at 8:18 am #3680861

Depending on your age and associated high frequency hearing loss you might not be able to hear the subtle high pitch of a basic small watch.

IMHO, pre-measured packets are a key to success, regardless of your brand preference.Oct 8, 2020 at 8:35 pm #3678903
At home I’m picky enough to grind freshly roasted beans and brew with an aeropress.
Although Café Bustelo instant is not as good, for me it does stand alone.Oct 8, 2020 at 6:46 pm #3678882
If you like sugar and milk with your coffee that’s your choice. But know that good coffee doesn’t need masking from sugar, flavors, or milk.
It will stand alone on it’s own merits.Oct 8, 2020 at 6:38 pm #3678881
What are the dimensions of a tightly packed/bundled bivy?Oct 4, 2020 at 9:47 am #3678408
I think pre-measured packets are the key to happiness.
Measuring by volume something so variable as instant coffee leads to wild swings in results.
For a while I ground my Classicó through a sieve to help with uniformity, but even then scooping was inconsistent when weighed on a 0.1 gram scale.
Packets resolved the issue.Oct 4, 2020 at 9:39 am #3678406

Aftrer trying many, including Via, Café Bustelo has become my backcountry instant coffee –
Comes out to $0.17 per packet, or $0.34 per 12 ounce cup.Oct 1, 2020 at 6:44 pm #3678097
Ultra user here. Two years of use with no problems.
Minor quibble: the USB port cover can be inadvertently pulled out when disconnecting the charging cable. Re-installation requires a small phillips screwdriver, a very small needle nose plier, and faith. Without the cover all electronics are directly vulnerable to splash or rain. Tape would suffice as a temporary fix.Sep 29, 2020 at 7:18 pm #3677904
Here in Podunk south-central Colorado we seem well supplied. Pallets of Coleman propane at Wally’s. No empty shelves at the two primary grocery stores. Plenty of guns and ammo.
Like most, shelves were laid bare as covid-panic set in, but now are back to normal.
We just returned from a three week jaunt to Minnesota and saw no shortages in the dozen or stores we hit.
Perhaps it’s “prepper-panic” in light of the upcoming elections.Sep 28, 2020 at 10:29 pm #3677804
“There were no recommendations about caloric intake or physical activity.”
Yep. Don’t reduce calories or increase activity and there will be no change. Brilliant!
Use IF as a technique to support calorie reduction while increasing activity and many people will see sustained weight loss.
I am one of them.
