Re: How many ponchos to make a quilt top?
Justin, no thanks on the bet, I think it'd be silly for either of us to lose money over this discussion. Nick, I got your PM, I'll send the tyvek out today. It's probably not origina...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: How many ponchos to make a quilt top?
Very good Justin. I hope you can make it out this weekend; I'm trying to scrape together an overnighter too. Since you threw your hat in the ring, I will too for accountability purposes. I p...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: How many ponchos to make a quilt top?
Justin, I'd rather be hiking than arguing on the internet, so I'll keep this short. Here is my original statement: "I think all you're doing by painting on silicone adhes...

Re: The Southern Sierra High Route - A Guide (a southern extension of the Sierra High Route to Mt. Whitney and beyond)
Alan, Thanks for posting this. As usual your guides set a high water mark for quality of photos, documentation and narrative and would not be out of place in a print guidebook. I saw this on you...

Re: How many ponchos to make a quilt top?
Justin, please excuse my skepticism, but I'd love to see a micrograph of that fabric... I have a high-power microscope, but no objective camera, so I don't have a good way to take a magnifi...

Re: Re: How many ponchos to make a quilt top?
Justin, I've read several of your posts suggesting that you can create your own EPIC-like coating by applying silicone adhesive to fabrics. I don't think that's correct. If you paint on...

ULA Ohm
The Ohm is my go-to pack for trips that don't require a bear can. You can fit a Bearikade in it, but it's not very comfortable because it bulges into your back. I put a plastic frame sheet fro...
