    Since I'm pretty much insane, I'm already thinking about another trip. Just days after telling myself "never again". I did the same thing last year.

    Only adding 1oz gives you a lot more width in porch mode. Doesn't sound like much, but watching that rain fall 5.5" further away matters to me.
