I just can not afford $435 or $575 for a new one.  If someone want s to sell their old tatered and worn case, well I can use it

rim Manufactures give a tension recomendation.  find yours, then use a
Spoke Tension Meter
to loose is better than to tight.
with the correct tension your wheel will last a long time
wrong tension    short wheel life

read the forrest service advise about rough camping.  always camp more than 200 feet of the trail.  no food in the tent. I've seen bears many times near my camp.  build a small or tiny fire.=, animals will stay away from fire
