Introduction: Combination Ergonomic Frame Pack, PVC Take-down Recurve Bow, and Hammock

I don’t know about you, but when the apocalypse hits I am unlikely to be in a bunker stocked with food, weapons, and entertainment. So I will have to travel to get to that bunker. Probably a very long way. I also don’t want to carry a lot of extra gear. I want all my gear to serve multiple purposes so I can travel light while maintaining versatility. Lastly, I am unlikely to be prepared for this event (hence my absence from the well-stocked bunker), and so I will probably have to find/scavenge all my gear.
To solve many of these problems I give you the VersaBow. This take-down recurve bow can easily be deconstructed and combined with a simple hammock (also a very versatile item) to form an ergonomic frame backpack. It also can be constructed from 100% easily scavengeable materials and tools with or without the aid of electricity. Truly, this is a device that covers all your apocalypse needs.
Before we get started I’d just like to give a shout out to Nick Tomihama, The Backyard Bowyer. This bow is primarily inspired by his work. If this bow isn’t to your style he’s got a lot more on his youtube channel and his books. They’re definitely worth a look.

Cheap DIY PVC Vocal Booth – Part 1
A Cheap DIY PVC Vocal Booth? Is it possible to build your own? Yes! In fact, so many people have contacted us about how to build their own PVC vocal booth that we thought we’d share an in-depth walk-through on how to build one for yourself. We’re going over what tools and materials you will need, and some other tips and tricks on making your vocal booth the best it can be. Our PVC pipe vocal booth example in this video features an 8 pole step-through door design, with no break half-way that utilizes 3-way connectors. We understand that 3-way connectors may be hard to get so we offer an alternative. We go through the assembly and build of the booth and blanket installation. There’s also a sound test which we’ve experimented with so you don’t have to test a single or double-layered booth yourself. ? ? Part 2: Expanding Your Booth ?

Step 11: Cutting the Bow Apart
At this point you should have a beautifully shaped, fully functional bow that you made over the course of an hour or two. You can stop right here and forgo the frame pack and you will still have an excellent, nigh indestructible bow that will undoubtedly serve you well. This is the point of no return. You have been warned.
Now we begin the process of turning this single piece bow into a three piece take-down bow. PVC take-down bows lose very little draw weight (if any) if made properly, but they do develop a creaking sound when drawn which may be a disadvantage if stealth is desired.
First off, measure 8 1/2 inches from the center on each side of the bow and mark it. Make a mark on either side of the line so that after you cut it you know which piece belongs with which. This will save a lot of headache later. Now cut it off as square as possible. Repeat on the other side.
There should now be three pieces of bow where once there was one whole bow. Don’t worry. We’re going to put it back together and the first step in that process is filing down the cut edges. File down the edges at an angle so that the inner edge is taller than the outer edge.
Repeat this process for every edge that you just cut.

Author’s Note: How can a PVC pipe help you survive?
As I was in my underground bunker writing this article, I realized my experiences as a doomsday prepper would finally come in handy. No more waiting for armies of the undead. All joking aside (I really don’t work inside a bunker), researching this article offered an array of fascinating DIY projects — all involving PVC pipe. At this point, I’m fairly confident that if push came to shove, I could fashion a greenhouse, temporary shelter, soccer goal or irrigation system out of PVC pipes. And you never know when that’s going to come in handy.
