    By the way, you've just piped up, and you already have a DIY down underquilt! I'm impressed.
    .. truly to enjoy bodily warmth, some small part of you must be cold, for there is no quality in this world that is not what it is merely by contrast. Nothing exists in itself. If you flatter yourself that you are all over comfortable, and have been so a long time, then you cannot be said to be comfortable any more. - Herman Melville

    Welcome neighbor!

    And hellllooo from equally not-quite-as-frosty-as-it should-be Maine. Where about's in NB are you? A couple of us are in the Bangor area. So there's group hanging possibilities there, I think.

    It's supposed to get down to -18C tonight (that's -2F for Celsius-challenged) so, of course I've got my Blackbird up by the stream. A report, maybe with video, will follow.

    That sounds fine. Once we get past "mud season", I think that would work.

    Cheers!

    Welcome to the forum Myles. This is a great place for hangers. On a weather note, we in southern BC have also had a mild winter in fact the mildest i can remember in 30 yrs. Somewhat normal temps except for the beginning of Jan. were it rained for two weeks and we have only about five inches of snow on the ground as opposed to the normal two to three feet. Have fun

    Good Day Eh? I lived in Toronto for 3 years on business. I did plenty of hiking and camping in the Niagara Escarpment. Welcome to the forums. Glad to have you aboard.
