269 viewsHere's my 8x10 set up with a rope for a ridgepole. I used a 4-part tackle (from a sailboat) for stretching it taut. As you see, no matter how tight you pull, some sag remains.

hey where's the snow?207 viewsearly March, 2007...along track and tower trail in Alqonquin Park...'difficult' conditions due to lack of snow. We chose to stay on the land trails as many creeks, beaver dams, lakes were already wet and too slush for fun pulling. Thats a black plastic sled from Can Tire with haul bars made from white plastic plumbing pipe. Great on twisting, turning hiking trails.

Home Made Anorak - Hood Up373 viewsThe hood is very deep, and extends well beyond the front of the face - not great for peripheral vision, but it sure cuts the wind well.
