    That was Ponca Lake in Ponca City Oklahoma on the TAT this summer. I did the MABDR and the TAT, 35 days on the trail, I slept in a hammock about 25 nights.

    20190905_102133.jpg 20190905_102245.jpg I've camped off a vstrom 1000, dr650, tiger 800 xcx, and now going ultralight with a 2018 ktm 500 excf. I now realize how much extra crap I used to bring. Here is my current pack list...

    Food, camp shoes and clothes, cook kit (gsi halulite pot, brs 3000 microstove), towel, sleeping mattress (big rei kingdom 3.5"), 20 degree sleeping bag (nemo forte), toiletries bag, inflatable pillow, and camp chair all in the coyote. 1.5 person tent (Sam's Club $25) on the beaver tail and tools/tube/pump split between the rear fender bag and the handlebar bag. Jump pack, water (3L hydration bladder), first aid kit, and snacks in the backpack.

    Holubar. I bought a down jacket there circa 1978. The store was on Bristol Street in Santa Ana, Ca. Down the street from South Coast Plaza if that means anything. Great products.

    A guy walks into a psychiatrist's office, takes his place on the couch and when asked, "What's the problem?" replies, "I'm a wigwam. I'm a teepee. I'm a wigwam. I'm a teepee."

    The psychiatrist replies, "Calm down. You're too tense!"

    I borrowed a sewing machine from a girls dorm to sew the bag. Its a very good bag. Not sewn through, little two inch baffles everywhere, large down filled tube down the zipper. Great bag and has held up well. I was a poor college student and this was a way to own some quality equipment.

    My guess is you're of a 'certain era' if you found a sewing machine in a girl's dorm...........

    Clearly though, you’re still two tents...

    Sewing. A good skill to have.

    I made straps a few times, and once a bag. I'm thinking I should get that machine out and make some more.

    Made a pillow case for a memory foam pillow from an old fleece jacket.

    Squishes down to the size of a softball, but has some ‘heft’ as far as pillows go.

    Perhaps someone should start a sewing thread - no pun intended :-)
