You know what I see when i browse these forums?
Lots of good help, yes, but also, lots of GROUPTHINK.
I challenge you to first try your own solution before beseeching the masses for theirs.
Leave the comfort of the known remedy and perhaps you'll create the next big thing.
Just because there is a plan for the G4, this doesn't mean you should copy it. Make your own bag. See what happens. Work your own problems. Return and spread what you've discovered. In this way you'll advance yourself and others.
Oh but the G4 is good for newbs, you say, or that the shire tarptent is a good place to start. Wrong, Mr. Jones. Failing is an integral process of discovery and creation. It is through failing that we base new ideas upon.
So before your next MYOG session. Don't come here. JUST DO IT YOURSELF. Then please come share! Our community will grow in this way. And trust me, you'll have more fun.
Now, Get out there and MAKE YOUR OWN GEAR for the upcoming season, then come back and share it! Good luck!
I hope that you've read the above with the sincerity with which it was written.
Sometimes, late at night, I sit and cry thinking of all the great ideas which has been missed, because we are lazy and we follow in the footsteps of those before us.
