    Hammock Birthday

    Being a leap year baby, and this not being a leap year, the family always argues about what day I should celebrate. It actually makes it easier in many ways. I spend time with half the family on the 28th, and the rest on March 1.

    This is definetly the best Birthday I've had in a long time, and the theme for this year was replace Wrongturn's Hammock stuff.

    Hokie was generous enough to send me his MacCat Deluxe in Spinn for me to look at before I buy it from him. A fellow Virginian none the less.

    Just got the go ahead from my CFO to spend the money on a 1.7 Single Layer Blackbird. Which I jumped on before she remembered the curtains she has been wanting. Thanks Brandon.

    Got an Above Tarp ridgeline on the way from Opie with the S-Biners.

    Have some slings coming from Stormcrow. Thanks again buddy. And hopefully by friday I'll have placed my order for one of his crowsnest UQs.

    Now if we can just skip forward to May so I can get a ULA Ohm, Packa, and a new Canoe.

    I thank all of our Cottage Industry guys for making such awesome gear, and supporting the community. It really gives me hope in the world to know that there are people like all of you on HF in the world.

    I hope everyone has a great day, and now I get to go stand by the mailbox and wait for all the goodies to arrive.

    Only problem with Birthdays is that they make you older. But, gifts like that make the pain a little easier to deal with!

    Happy Birthday!

    Happy Birthday! So how old are you just counting Feb 29's? Or is that too personal?

    No not to personal at all. In actual years gone by I'm 22. In terms of actual number of Feb 29s that have gone by, I'm 5 1/2.

    Thanks for all the well wishes. I can't wait to get back out into the woods this spring.

    Always good to get outdoor stuff for your birthday! My wife is amazed at the care I give my gear as compared to all my other crap. As soon as I am done with a trip I take it all back out clean it and sort it for the next trip. I got my sleeping bag for my 26th birthday. Im 34 now. Still in excellent shape. Not a tear on it.

    Happy Birthday!
