Julie writes, “I have been wanting to get a hoop for so long and, for some odd reason, felt like it wasn’t necessary or I’d probably never do it or whatever other ridiculous reason I was telling myself. Then I was reading my good friend Kendra’s blog and was totally motivated (plus I knew I would have someone to hoop with too). So I ordered one up. After I ordered it I couldn’t wait to tell Kendra and then she told me she found directions on the internet to make them (of course there’s instructions on the internet). … Since I work for a local home improvement center I have all the supplies at my finger tips. … 3/4″ irrigation tubing at 160psi (I like the weight of this) … 3/4″ connector for the tubing. Tape – the sites I viewed suggested gaffer tape, but we don’t sell it so I just used good old colored vinyl tape found in our electrical dept.” She lives in Northern California.
