order some tyvek house wrap from ebay

gonna test it as the outside bivvy. I tested it as a lone bivvy before and it had too much condensation. but as an outside layer of the pair of bivvies, using the breathable mylar SOL "Escape" bivvy as the inside layer, we'll see. I'm not very happy with how easily torn/punctured the SOL "non breathable' bivvy is. I know that clothing type tyvek is much too fragile for this use, but I can't find my house wrap> i had some, before the move, but she must have boxed it up and it's in the shed someplace. anyway, I"ll be checking out the durability of tyvek and if it's considerably more tear resistant than the mylar, I'll tape it into a bivvy configuration and see how it goes about keeping me warm out on the drum liners full of leaves.

Yeah but he's at least finding out what will and won't work.

I'll give him that much. Not much but that much.

If he is actually doing any of this. Without any actual evidence, who knows?

Another thing, why in the **** would you order it from sleasebay when you could go to Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, any other place that sells building supplies. Maybe you never replaced the battery in the van after they stole it while you were drugged out asleep in it.

Boati, You know you're trying to re-invent the cowboy bedroll - right?

You should google it. there's a few variations, but they will all keep you warmer than what you're trying to do. And you can always supplement them with a garbage bag full of debris.

the cowboys used oilcloth and wool blankets, and had a HORSE to lug it all around They didn't have to carry 40 lbs of other stuff on their bags. There's nothing "re" in what I'm doing. It's original. There's a hammock, bug net bags, all sorts of protection from wind, rain, cold sun, a dozen different ways to set it up or wear it.

While you might get by with improvised gear temporarily, your not equipped for the long haul or unexpected events, like the snow in Texas last week.

Nothing youíre doing is original, for a lot of reasons, but mostly because you arenít actually doing any of it.

I know what I can carry, because I actually do it. Unlike you, I spend time in the field. I pack in, live, hunt, and pack out.

With your bad back, bad knees, bad circulation, leaky heart, and whatever else you have, you are not doing any of the things you claim.

You can’t even provide any evidence that any of your gear exists anywhere outside your imagination. We have posted pictures and other evidence. You post excuses.

And before you deny any of it, post pictures or you’re lying.

By the way, google can really help you out here, lots of cowboy bedroll systems out there for sale. Modern versions. With modern materials.

And you arenít wearing any such gear. You know it and we know it. Pictures or itís a lie.

All of those will stand up to heavy use and a wide range of conditions.

But again, had he taken a minute to look, he would have a clue.
