    1' webbing from REI or comparable. 3 decent weight carabiners.
    youtube for how to set it up using just those simple items.

    open season. set mine up using 6' sections of construction webbing with carabiner like clips on the ends. connected these clips figure 8 style till i had a long slackline. one end goes around a small wall inside and the other goes around the deck railing. hat and vodka optional.



    its not always this neat at my slum.

    Just go with 3/8 inch rope. And key word is SLACK. You definitely don't want to take in the sack with this set up.

    speechless?

    This is a coping strategy for the skier's version of post orgasmic regret - "oh fuck, the snow has melted and I live in Utah."

    ok. the purse is full of old locks and keys. i owned a computer store for 16 years and have old junk left over. the duck is ceramic. the stuffed animal is a large mouth bass. look at my pics for mr. duck bass. i never imagined that my slum would be so fascinating to others. well here are a few more pics to round out the slum tour.
