My Locale Midwest
About Me My wife and I are originally from MI. Lived in VA for 6 years and really loved the area. But we've just moved back to Michigan, yeah! We couldn't stay away. I'm been an avid backpacker for about 20 years or so. After my first week long trip carrying #60 I started down the lightweight road. I like to make some of my own gear when I can. We love to travel and hike. I've been a designer all my adult life, primarily in the automotive industry but the last 6 years in aerospace.

THANKS Nick!
What a great explanation, thanks. And as noted, Spectra orientation is probably not as critical on a tent or tarp as it is in the sailing world.

to sewing Cuben, at least on high stress areas. I would stick to glue or tape.

JAMBO! AWESOME TRIP PLANNED!
As others have said, you will need to climb Kili with a licensed company. With that info, they will be able to provide most any gear needed for rent. And they will probably provide shelter and co...
