Welcome to my hopefully soon-to-be used blog!

Welcome all DIY fans! So far, nothing has happened here yet, but hopefully I will start to use this soon. If I don't have time to make a video, maybe I'll post something here instead.

So what is Good Enough Stuff? This refers to my personal philosophy of resource-light homemade equipment for photography, backpacking, and miscellaneous situations. What are these resources? They would include-
  • Time
  • Money
  • Tools
  • Skill
  • Materials
Can you make a hammock at home? Absolutely. But if it takes 10 days, requires a $500 sewing machine, expensive high-tech fabric, or a PhD in sewing, then to me, it's not worth it. So instead, I build a hammock in an hour or two for less than $20. Will it be as good as the $800 hammock? Probably not. But, it's "good enough."

Anyway, I hope you check back over time as I get more of my projects up here. And if you want to see what I've already built, try my YouTube account (search for PacoWarabi). Have a great time building stuff!



  1. Hey, Paco, I love your YouTube videos. You've got some great ideas. Thanks for sharing. I hope to see more on your blog as you go . . .


  2. Practical recycling has always been one of my favorite things. I have a large section of Tyvek for a camping tarp and some old curtains for a hammock. They both work very well and I tend to stay dry. If you can't post new items regularly, post occasionally to let us know you are still doing ok. Peace. (0takop on YouTube)
