    It's Here!!!

    I went to run to the post office so I could get the mail drop for Dancer and Iin the mail for our hike and handle a couple errands while I was out. When I got back, guess what was sitting on my front doorstep? That's right, a box from Hammock Gear that contains a little bundle of downy, warm love. My 3 Season CrowsNest is here!

    After opening the package, I inspected the UQ just to look at it. Not only does it look good from a strictly aesthetic standpoint, it's incredibly well made. The design and stitching on this quilt is 110% professionally done and I love it! It's now laying out on the hardwood lofting up and standing by to be packed for the trip to Harpers Ferry this weekend. I can't wait to sleep in this thing. I feel like a kid with a new toy! Oh yeah, that's right. I am a kid with a new toy. Almost forgot.

    To come is a review of how well it works. I expect good things from this quilt and can't wait to see how it performs. I'm pretty sure that I won't be disappointed.

    Many thanks to Stormcrow and Thowren both who did a mighty fine job from start to finish, from ordering to shipping. Thanks again, y'all. You've definitely earned my business!

    You've been told before that you can't skip days on those meds.
    See what happens?

    Nice score Hooch. I've had an eye on those quilts for some time now, just always seem to find other things to do with the money. Stupid bills!

    I am only sad that there is not a little green smilie to show of how jealous I am. Try to picture a green Buffalo.

    I want pictures too....

    I've been ready to lighten up on 3 season insulation for a little hile now, so it was time to go with something smaller and lighter. I couldn't have made a better decision, if you ask me.
