..so this weekend my wife told me we should go to REI "just to browse around". We've been working pretty hard lately on remodeling our house, and I thought it'd be nice to get a morning off, so.. off we went.
I'd been eyeballing the Exped Downmat 7 for use in our bridge hammocks for a trip on the John Muir trail this summer that we've been planning.. well, she decided to surprise me with one :)
So we get to REI and she goes to the counter and picks up a box that she'd had shipped there. Needless to say, that was a nice surprise. She's away this week on business, so I'm going to be sleeping in the back yard testing it out :)
That's all - no useful information; I'm just excited :)
