    Might as well face it....I'm addicted to down

    When I started hammocking I scoffed at expensive underquilts and scoffed even louder at top quilts. I had a pad and a sleeping bag and there was no reason to spend the big money on small packages. Well I broke down and bought a HG Incubator 20 because my pad was uncomfortable in my hammock. I think I ended up ordering a Burrow 20 before I even had 1 night in the UQ. Well those are wintery items and well lets face it....spring is upon us. So now I plan to use my 20 Incubator (loosely slung) and my 40deg Montbell Hugger. But of course now that I am used to all the awesomeness of HG quilts I want to ditch the Montbell (which is very gently used...hint) and pick up a 40deg Incubator. Still planning to use the 20 Incubator slung loose, but really who am I kidding....Ill end up with a warm weather UQ from HG before the cold weather rolls back around. Well they say that admitting you have a problem is the first step.......

    Well, it started with a down quilt, then an under quilt, then, 3 jackets, pants, booties etc. All very packable, warm..........where will it all end?

    LOL yea the only thing better then floating in a pool filled with soft furry kittens is to be covered in down. Got the email earlier Topquilt being shipped can't wait, lol. I think I may have a problem too lol.
    Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
