Yeah but it’s a motor camping item
Yes... old... and happy to have made it this far.
I’ve also sewn two sails for boats I’ve built. I’m not clever, just cheap.
I had a sewing machine in college, and as an active climber and backpacker used it a lot making custom gear, stuff sacks, etc. Also made money repairing the backpacks of other students when they got holes in them or inevitably broke a zipper. Great skill to have!
One of the guys around here was UDT/SEAL. He was responsible for repairing his unit's gear. They called him 'stitch bitch'.
Yeah, a good skill to have.
I am often amazed at what some people will buy that for way less effort/time/money they could make themselves.
And the satisfaction of making it, too. Plus you get exactly what you want....theoretically anyhow.
No way, there is truly a number of diverse people on this forum, wow.
If you can tie your shoes and live near a grocery store... you can make all kinds of shit.
I am constantly amazed at how diverse the asylum is and how wide ranging the vast amount of knowledge is in the wee brains of all the inmates on here. Part of why I love hanging out on here and am reduced to only having friends here vs anywhere else.
Not to add flames to the roll your own fire here's a few sparks to get things started http://www.rayjardine.com/index.shtml
Thanks for that link. This could be fun.
Maybe you just need a shower...
Naaaa...smelling bad keeps people away
Another cheap ol' bastard here - that is, time rich and money poor. I've been making my own luggage for a while now. It's been through many iterations over the years as the gear I want to carry has changed and my skills have improved. Ten years ago it looked like this:
And on a recent trip:
Yeah, we carry a bit of gear in Australia. A lot of it is beer and ice.
I don't mind at all that my SIY luggage looks home-made. It's good practical stuff and very satisfying to make. Fun too, for an elderly kitten:
That gear looks great to me!
You have plenty of room for all the anti-venom for the critters that want to kill you!
Look pretty good to me elderly kitten or not, nice work and I guess tailored to you individual needs.
