I've always been curious about that approach. Given that you were fabricating nuts on the cheap, why didn't you rack up with a dozen of them and a bunch of slings? Were carabiners the limiting economic factor, or was it more of a cultural thing to run it out with minimal gear?

Also, did you ever carry a hammer and pins on free climbs, or was that more hassle than it was worth, or ethically unacceptable at the time?
