Re: the "Loch Glashan" - Iron Age leather satchel / haversack

Udwin, very true. The bag looks legit. I can't believe the insane price being asked for it on etsy, though. Yikes.

Re: Fall 2019 MERS Moot

Udwin's conspicuous absence was my one and only regret of this adventure. He's a constant and welcome companion, and would have added much to the proceedings. Dave's presence was a wonderful addition...I haven't seen him on the trail since the first overnighter Odigan and I met on back in 2011. This...

Re: Fall 2019 MERS Moot

The main roof is approximately one-Ursus-long-by-one-Ursus-wide.

We increased the capacity with a lean-to off each side, which adds roughly one Ursus' width to each side, allowing for four, maybe someday five, occupants.

Fall 2019 MERS Moot

Greetings fellow travelers! This past weekend, a respectable group of 'Taurandir' descended upon the Tecumseh trail in Southern Indiana, a 42-mile through hike trail, to hike a segment of it and set up a few camps. We had an excellent time, with both new and old faces, put a decent number of miles u...

Re: A bit of Shire goodness

Good information. That'd be a nice something to stir into a pot of hot oats in the morning (though on the trail, a bottle of berries in water would be a good deal of excess weight to be dealing with just for the sake of a bit of flavor and whatever nutrients the berries are packing.)

Re: the "Loch Glashan" - Iron Age leather satchel / haversack

More often than not, I think we find bags like this being made with a front and back panel, and with a single gusset that goes all the way from one side to the other. I think I like the shape of this one more. Neat!

Re: On Oiled Silk

This is are ally cool direction you're headed in, and I can't wait to see where it leads, but if I were to give my input, it would go simply yet frustratingly against your goals. I'd ditch the tarp, and save ALL the weight. I've done my last three treks with natural or no shelter, rather than a tarp...

Re: Let's Talk about Legs!

An interesting thought for the hive mind: If one of Dunedain persuasion were wearing such a shortened pair of "pants" as described and pictured above, it would be a rather simple task of removing the tall boots and wool hose beneath to wade across a stream without soaking the footwear, ami...

Re: As promised, maps for sale!

I'm in the Midwest now, yes, but Druin's up in Chico and may have an interest. I'll poke him about it.
