If you have been following my Pedalling for Mental Health adventures or if you saw the Wild in my Garden post, you will know that my amazing older sis made me a bivy sack! It is really the most marvelous thing and I got a bunch of requests for more info on how one might make such a creation. Well, the master herself has shared her secrets.

If you are looking to get into the wonderful (and somewhat addictive) world of ‘make your own gear’ (MYOG), a bivy is a great place to start. People will be impressed, and you can adapt it to suit you. Plus the tarp/bivy combo is an excellent light way to camp.

It’s on the to-do list! Though if I wait to go on a micro adventure till I’ve made my own bivy, I might be waiting a long time….
It is a great thing to add to the to-do list, but you can definitely micro adventure without one! If you think the weather is going to be good, you can even just take a sleeping bag to a hill and sleep under the stars! No fancy equipment necessary!
