Iron Cloth was developed as portable landing pad for Viet Nam. Just unroll it and lay it on the ground and the Helicopters could land on it and not sink into the softer ground. It is a much heavier fabric than even the Cordura fabrics.
I have several of Davis Tent saddle panniers and one of the 14x16 tents.. They make good stuff.
Dbhrsmn, Invite me down to join you for the Robbers Roost. I've been wanting to ride into that side for years. I've ridden a lot on the west side of hiway 24. Chute Canyon, Wild Horse, Ernie, Lone Man, and Straight wash. I also had a Desert Big Horn tag for the South Swell and hunted most of that unit looking for my ram. So I spent a lot of time up in Eagle Canyon, Justinson Flats and over west by Moroni Slopes, Chimney Canyon, Segers Hole, Ireland Mesa, Poor Canyon and the Dike.
I've also ridden a lot around Bryce, But would like to explore a little more of the Paunsaugunt. I have hunted the top of Boulders a lot for elk, so I'm familiar with that area. But I'm sure there is a lot to see dropping down off the side and over into Capital Reef.
It wouldn't take much arm twisting to get me to load up and head down. Well, maybe when I get the trailer un-frozen.
