  3. Thanks BB That is great. I hope it is as easy as you make it look. The hard part is to find some milkweed.
  4. les's blog update on the new season.

    Les updated it today (Jan 30) from Africa.
  5. Great posts Holly For tire changing- make sure that if you get work done at a garage that they put the tire on by hand not with the air gun. Also you can get a 4 way wrench instead of the little one that comes with your car. It is longer and you can even carefully stand on the other end. Every driver should know how to change a tire.
  6. Holly Just get Ashley to teachyou. Most of them you just repeat the same knot over and over again. You won't be the first person to have to take it apart and start again. You can do it :yes: :yes: :yes:

  12. Thanks guys. Next I want to make a belt. Has anybody else made any different things?
  13. Winter camping?

    Yes eggs and bacon (suasage or ham) can be done in the bag. Cook your bacon and scrambled eggs like you normal would. Cut your bacon into bite sized peices and put them into the bag with your eggs. I should have mentioned every thing should be cooked and cut to bite size peices because you just thaw then warm your meal. Anything you want can go in the bag. Some of the kids did pancakes or french toast with the syrup in the bag. The only thing we did not like was some thing like pizza pockets because the out side crust went doughy. It was great at camp because we didn't have any dishes to wash except our spoon and mug for those that drank coffee, hot chocolate etc.
  14. Sorry it took so long guys. Bravo sorry not a cowboy hat. It's a Tilley that I had for years. I used 10 meters of 3mm static cord. The only thing I did different from the braclet instructions was I doubled the amount you use to go around the hat and folded it in half so my center core is 4 strands instead of two. I did this because I wanted to use the full 10 meter peice of rope I had. (meter is 39" yard is 36")
