I guess it’s sewing today. . .
I was out last night later than usual, so I didn’t get up in time to make the Quaker meeting. I’m kind of a zombie anyway, and I have another commitment tonight, so I guess it’s sewing day. I love sunny days in the sewing room. I’ll work on hiking when the days are longer in Feb.
I’m working on my cuben fiber tarp. Already, I’ve had to modify it. I cut it out according to directions, realized I simply did not like the width – too narrow, so I cut six extra inches, and taped them to either side. For the most part, I’m taping the seams with some kind of super stick tape instead of sewing them. On tap for today – making the “beaks” for either end, with short zippers in the peaks so they can be beaks, or lay flat for use with the hammock. Yes, that’s my own modification as well. Going to use this piece of equipment for the entire hike.
