    Guys, this is driven by your ideas. If y'all want this to keep happening, I'm gonna need some input. Plain and simple. There was plenty of interest a few months ago, where'd it all go? Come on, let's get some ideas?

    From previous efforts on such projects, I have observed that the ideas do not flow in very fast from those who participate. I might recommend offering a set of four or five choices, and giving the members a chance to vote. That could increase the participation a bit.

    That's not a bad idea, GreyOne. I may just have to start doing that.

    canvas and leather

    Due to the popularity of all things canvas and leather these days why not do something canvas and leather, with waxing being an option I am gonna do some projects this winter and I a would love to get in on this and facilitate in any way that I am able. To my mind self made equipment is the true essence of bushcraft. Let's DIY this thing I'm in!!

    A fishing pole I can put in my go bag would be cool to see done. not sure how that would go. if not then a homemade food dehydrator. Great ideas on the list
