Fabric Calendering

If today is Thursday, we must be in ripstop.

Fabric Calendering: A process that compacts the fibers in a fabric to make it more wind resistant.

Fabric Calendering: A process for finishing fabrics in which such special effects as high luster, glazing, and embossing are produced.

Fire in Your Hand (Dave's Little Guide to Ultralight Backpacking Stoves) is now updated, and available in Mobi, ePub, or PDF formats. (New print version coming soon too.)

How you can hike lighter, hike better, hike simpler, make your own stoves and have lots of fun in the woods, either alone or with friends (if you have any).

Featuring tips, stories and ravings from the author and his imaginary friends and relatives like Uncle Reinhold Pudzer, Citron Ella Schmelling, Joe "Dirty Maggot" Periwinkle the thru-hiker, and possibly some others too frightening to mention, like Aunt Lydia Pudzer, who provides frequent scoldings.

The second edition mostly refreshes references to external sources. You know how those pesky web sites keep winking out of existence, taking with them all that good info you want? Well, I updated all that, so now you can actually go and read the details of what genuine smart people wrote, and won't have to swear at me anymore because the URLs are dead.

Plus, I caught a few typos, but probably left just enough to annoy you. For those of you who can read, likely the only people interested in books anyhow.

Where, then?

For Kindle Fire (Mobi with decent formatting, but only for Kindle Fire.)



And how much? $5.99
