The sort of Bush Repair thing (without the heat gun) that could just save the day when you really need it!

Nice.  You never know when knowing this would be handy.  Might not have a heat gun when deep in the woods, but sometimes you still need a bush fix where ever you are.

I'm amazed at how inventive some people are. I mean, I'd have never thought of that (using old soft drink/pop bottles for shrink-wrap-like repairs, but what a great idea, truly.

The older I get the more I realize there is to learn/the more I realize I don't know . . .

All the best, and Joe, thanks for posting the link,

Lanny

Lanny - For your amusement - something I posted here earlier this year:

""We all know what we know, you know,
but we don't know what we don't know, you know.
The only way to learn what you don't know is to ask someone whom you do know
what you know you don't know"."
