1291Re: Hammock Camping Re: Taco shell length vs. sil-poncho?!?!
- May 5, 2003I was just looking at the Equinox
version (58"x104") during my lunch break at Galyan's. It does indeed
have a fold along the edges, that I think (with a bit of luck and
patience) I could run a cord through.
What about the length? At 8'8" that is only 4" short of the 9'
mentioned on the "official Garlington Taco" site.
