I have been surfing the "Pics of your loaded rigs" thread for a while now and it never ceases to impress or amaze me how talented some of the participants in this Forum really are. With that said, I'd like to open this thread to anyone who makes their own touring gear (panniers, tents, clothing, etc.) so we have sort of a one stop "clearinghouse" for such things. It seems like some of those designs I've seen in the Pics thread are scattered all about and having them all in one place would be nice.
I also think it'd be appropriate for this to be a place where those that do such things can either offer the designs for copy or post assistance directions or even "hang thier shingle out there", so to speak, so that those of us who lack talent or time or resources might be able to enlist that talent for for trade, barter or cashola so long as the transactions take place in a different venue. It may be just the thing to get a maker over the top and become a bonafide advertizer on the Forum.
So, let the posting begin!...just not with me. I have a hard enough time making ends meet let alone cool touring gear.
