Home made stuff sacks
Ok, last post for the month of March. Today I was packing up the gear i'll be using next week on my 1 on 1 survival trek. I noticed that my student poncho was missing its stuff sack. In my plunder I had a fairly good sized piece of tent fabric , scored from a dumpster.
I figured that I could hand sew a decent bag in a short time but my good friend "The wildcat missionary" volunteered his wife Eva's sewing machine and skills...Good idea.
Eva made me 2 decent sized stuff sacks and added double draw strings to them....wayyyyyy better then I would have done. Thanks Eva!
I really like the double draw string configuration, it closes up the bag tighter than the asshole on a pack mule - kinda looks like that too.
Anyhoo, with this new addition to my gear, I was able to pack the student Hammock, Poncho (with extra strings etc.,)Then get to drinking some whiskey.
I hope you like the pics.
