I'm sewing, sewing, sewing. It's hard, I'm learning how to sew and I make a lot of mistakes. Today, I got stuck and bailed out and ate vegan ice cream and pouted and was butthurt.
I've also been watching the show, "The Walking Dead" on DVD. It's good, old fashioned zombie gore and fun. I really enjoy zombie movies, but earlier today I noticed how some people just get tired of fighting zombies and not having dishwashers and whatnot and just give up. They get tired of clubbing zombies and that's it, they shoot themselves or jump off a building or so forth. I suppose, if they could, they would just plop down and eat ice cream and pout. Now, I get that.
I also realized that learning how to sew is my zombie apocalypse and that I need to be careful and creative and make do with the limited resources that I have. I don't mean to say that I have to take a chainsaw to any monsters today, but building a business is fraught with many hazards and has it's own challenges and I have to rise up to meet them. I guess life is just like that.
Zombie sewing pins, anyone?
There data loggers are slated for the 2012 Pacific Crest Trail.
We've added iButton data loggers to our arsenal for recording temperatures during our sleeping bag tests. Weighing in at about 1/10 of an ounce and a about 1/4 inch thick by 5/8 inch in diameter, these temperature sensors will make testing sleeping bags much easier.
By placing one sensor inside a sleeping bag, another inside a tent or under a tarp and a third outside the tent or tarp, nighttime temperatures can be monitored.
Couple this information with a profile of the tester and his or her gear, the temperature information can be put into context during a series of tests to test the efficacy of a sleeping bag.
More information on our new way of testing sleeping bags can me found on our sleeping bag testing pages.
