Hot springs in winter are the best……
If I had a life’s goal, a passion, that has gone unrealized; it would be the search and intake of the worlds best Hot-springs. I love em. Here’s a picture of a long lost spring with Doug getting blasted by the heat on this past Monday. The 20 km of hiking and river crossings make it all the more pleasurable!
Like this one from Patrick in Belgum; he sends me some shots and a note:
All in Japanese but some great pictures and Videos!
Ose San organized the Japan west owners meet and got everyone together for an awesome shot! I think this needs to happen more often.
Re: Hatch tunnels and nylon gear delaminating.
Unfortunately, when this coating goes, there isn’t anything much to be done.
You could try flaking off what you can; and then try a nylon recoat product
used for coating nylon tents. Do a test on a small piece first.
The seams on the tunnel would also need to be sealed.
A further suggestion would be to upgrade the hatch covers to the double coated
nylon covers. The old covers have also lost waterproofing – so that way you’d
be stopping some of the seepage.
Just in case sbdy else asks this question. I seem to have found a solution to this problem.
Using a liquid naphta product for waterproofing awnings (from a camping supply) and soaking the nylon fabric from the uncoated side, I was able to makes this pretty waterproof. Seems like this is not hurting the othe hull fabrics either.
