Thanks for the info and comments.
I do the same thing for the same reasons.
If the shelter can fit into an external pocket of its own, so much the better. This works well for me when using a large ALICE pack - a Super Tarp w/...
Thanks for the pic - looks like a good tuck to me.
Does the holster "freely" pivot on the belt or can it be tightened into place once the adjustment is set appropriately?
Any pics looking straight down?
I'm interested in how well the holster tucks the grip into the waistline.
I missed that - thanks - I'll be sure to check it out!
Are you suggesting that Kifaru is in the process of manufacturing an AIWB holster?
I currently use a Keeper AIWB holster, but also have a JM Custom Kydex and a Raven Concealment Vanguard 2.
Thanks for the info!
What did the temps get down to?
Did you find the small stove adequate enough for keeping the shelter heated or did you just use it for cooking?
Wow -nice shot!
What are the details of the exposure?
There seems to be a little movement in the stars, but not much.
What was the light source in the tipi?
Just getting these photos up now; computer crash, lost the cable from the camera, etc....
A BIG thanks to Ken, Johnny, Patrick for everything they do to make this rendezvous happen.
I didn't notice at the ECR when we set up the Meag-Tarp, but did it have the small para-cord loops for measuring pole length like the Para and Super Tarps?
I hang mine in the basement from a couple of rafters and let a small fan blow on it. I'll occasionally turn it inside out and back again just to ensure all the moisture evaporates.
I'll be there Friday evening with the steel targets.
All you need is a holster insert for your sporran and keep your sgian-dubh close at hand!
Most convenience stores I've been in have single room bathrooms. That's what I look for when it's time to "drop a duce". You can go in there, lock the door and be all by yourself. Sometimes I set the...
Cool - If you haven't seen it already, you should check out the East Coast Rendezvous thread.
It's a weekend camping trip for Kifaru enthusiasts in Northville, NY - about 1.5 hours from you.
...as in Glass Lake, Rensselaer County and the home of the "former" Glass Lake Inn near Averill Park?
Nothing a little salsa and hot sauce can't fix if you are so inclined.
(Ralph - did you notice that Spam now comes in single serving packets?) :)
Teach a man to fish and he...
... has to buy a "permission slip" from the government before he casts a line.
Another Midway product to consider is the Cartridge Overall Length Gage.
It uses a cleaning rod and two small clamps to measure the distance from the bolt face to the tip of the bullet.
In good snow years it's a 1.5 mile trek in to the camp.
People have hiked, used skis or snowshoes, four-wheeled, or used a snow-machine to cover the distance.
Some people sleep in the camp,...
I did a short experiment last year to test this out and posted it on another forum.
To read about it click this: How much wood do you need?
I do basically the same thing with a spare SST pin or a stick.
Works on the 8-man and the Super-Tarp.
Something like that probably could have been done - I hadn't thought of angling the space blankets in the form of a wedge or plow to focus the heat waves back at me - good idea!
Working out the...
I find these "space blanket" type items to be highly over rated.
I'd like to know how the manufacturers came about their claim that the item "Reflects 90% of your body heat!"
After a lively...
