Just getting this blog up and going my friends... please stay tuned for more upcoming articles.
John,I love your YouTube channel, especially the tips and the DIY stuff. I am wondering if you have any brilliant ideas for a DIY LID for an 1.25 qt. IMUSA mug (besides plain aluminum foil)?
You might try using aluminum flashing it can be crimped like a muffin liner and is more durable than regular aluminum foil.
Hi John,I have been watching your videos over the last weeks and like what you are doing. I really like you lightweight but also low cost practical approach, and how you still keep your eye on why you are out there, to have fun. Just wondering if you have any more information on any of your DIY gear. Especially the six sided tarp and the pack. For the tarp having the dimensions of the lenght, width and taper and tie out points would be handy. Thanks and keep up the great work! Jim
Great site, nice tip on the string stabilizer. Also you can hook it off your toe if wear sandals or hike barefoot. Regards

Hey, I was watching your video on your backpack and tent and it's been getting me really excited to attempt one for myself! You mentioned somewhat of a tutorial for both, but I haven't been able to find either. If you could message me when you got a chance that would be greatly appreciated!
Hah! Brilliant! Way to be resourceful! Hadnt thought to go 'second-hand' for the materials! Duh...now getting the down shouldnt be a major problem or $$$. Keep up the great work, your vids have been pretty much exactly what I've been looking for with regard to DIY lightweight camping gear projects. I also agree w Jordan Lee above, any sort of blueprints or design notes/measurements might be handy for these projects so if you got them and feel like sharing, please do!

Do you have any written specs for the two man tent and the lightweight bacpack. I'd really appreciate it.
John, I need to email you on the light weight pack you made, as I would like to have one but I dont have the skills to saw as well as you do ..So what would be the cost to have one made, on the same style you did with any mods you might have done? Its best to email Ranger1Dale@yahoo.com tks Dale
