    No shock cords on the pod/sleeping bag really. They may be the ones coming from the UQ inside the pod.

    Hey Shug,

    Great report as always. Although the bag seems a little constricting, it's good to know that it is a viable option in a pinch. Personally, I like to sleep in a figure four or frog leg position so the bag would drive me nuts.

    Nice assortment of 'stuff'

    Great video sir. That's a really cool idea using the fleece as a breath catcher. Epic man cave too. I really liked the cat clock. Reminds me of the one I saw in Honey I shrunk the kids, when I was wearing my ninja turtles pj's and I had a He-Man toy in my hand. Thanks for posting

    Great result, Shug. I'm glad it worked out for you.

    I like the Junkyard Dog action figure, too.

    Good report on the pod/sleeping bag! I did that a couple years ago and I didn't like the restrictiveness of it either.
    Did you feel somewhat bound up inside?

    Love the "man-cave"! It's always cool to see what's in the background of people's videos/pics.
