Re: Work in progress: Tent floor liner

Insul Bright is an interesting fabric, easy to sew, but if you cut it be aware that the mylar tends to float in the air (When I cut the IB for cozies I usually wear a face mask, as I am cutting 20 yds at a time!). Usually my nosy cats end up sneezing after I cut. It might not be super cheap to do th...

I am using the material I use for my cozies to make a custom floor liner for my solo tent - so that I won't be so cold th...

Re: Workbench photos

If all that camping gear hits you take a hint set it up in the back yard then use it one night a week. It goes backpacking two times a month usually - the gear pile is for 3 people, who could outfit a small tribe :mrgreen: And the piling theory just doesn't always pan out..lol! My DIY workshop was ...

Re: Workbench photos

It is a mess :oops: I at least have an area to try out new projects. The summer table out back works great for testing stoves! We are remo...

I agree with sharing! I often post new recipes on 3-4 forums as well as my blog. I figure the more people learn, the better!

I'll say hi!

Most of you probably know me from over on Whiteblaze, since I loiter in the cooking and the ladies sections most.

What to say? I love hiking and backpacking, and I love making gear. I live in Washington State, in the foothills of Mt. Rainier.

So there!

Re: Pot Cozy - To Use or Not to Use

Don't know if you guys have seen my cozies that I make out of Insul Bright material...I got pimped by Backpacker Magazine in the December issue though for them :D I try to keep them under 1 1/2 ounces total weight. They also insulate cold foods as well, so dual purpose (and they roll up when not nee...
