    Default Goodwill find

    Well I don't usually go to thrift stores because I never luck out! Tonight I was looking for some wool or leather for a project. I found two Thermarest Ridge Rests for $2 (sell for $20 ea) that were brand new. I like to use these for winter camping to provide extra insulation on the snow. Although spruce boughs are nice, there aren't always trees!

    Its not the best deal I've gotten at a Thrift Store but I found a nice like new lightweight Colombia button up long sleeve for $12.00

    Two weeks ago I stopped by Home Depot to see if I could find any of those $25 5 Piece Camping Sets (Tent, 2 Mummy Bags and 2 Sleeping Pads).

    They ended up being $1 for each set...I got two, in case any of my buddies that don't have their own gear decide to tag along on a camping trip.

    They also had the Leatherman Wingman and Style CS set for $20 so I grabbed two of those as well.

    Wow...nice find! That's the best stove Coleman built in my opinion.

    I found some ACU digital pattern nylon fabric at Wal-Mart yesterday for $1.97/yard. Bought 5 yards, later that day decided that was too good a deal, went back and bought the rest of the bolt. Looks like some tarps and maybe bivy type stuff in my future

    That reminds me of the stuff my grandfather always made in his workshop
