Re: Pyramid Tarptent with Removable Floor
Okay, I finally bought a sewing machine and learned how to sew. I've made a few stuff sacks, practiced a few long flat-felled seams, and I feel I'm ready to take on this project now. The...

Re: Tent/shelter system with small staked footprint under 1 lb. total possible?

Re: Stratosphire

Re: Looking for the (?maybe?) perfect quilt and need some help finding it
