My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: factcheck.org @ Michael
I think there was a period of about one month when the Democrats had a fillibuster proof majority. Another thing is the Democrats have more diversity - harder to get them all to vote the same....

Re: Glue
Try to stretch it as you're glueing it. Maybe hold a section under stress and then press down the strip firmly and then if it relaxes a little, the strip will just go with it

Re sew the seam
Okay, maybe not mineral spirits : ) I was remembering your article - somewhat surprising that just silicone works so well
