    After much hemming and hawing

    I decided to upgrade my top quilt. Sure, I've tried a poorly-made DIY thing-a-majig as a top quilt, a sleeping bag as a top quilt and sometimes use a synthetic top quilt but the downy goodness has been calling my name. I did my research and just confirmed I'm order #965 from HammockGear for a 3-season Burrow. Yes, I just ordered it and can't wait for it to arrive. Not sure if it will get here for MAHHA (a man can dream, can't he?) but I'm certain I'll be like a kid on Christmas morning. Let the waiting begin.

    Not sure just yet pellet. There are a few ladies in the house that might want the gear. If not, I'll offer here in some way shape or form.

    Syb, your going to love your new quilt. Hammock Gear folk do some might fine work. It is a long wait but it is all well worth it once your wrapped in the downy goodness of the incubator.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Thanks LRR. Having seen their work I know it will be very well worth it. You were a big factor in me choosing them since you have something like, what, 30 of their quilts now?

    No not 30 I only have like 7 of their quilts with one on the way but I'm in the process of selling them to purchase some new custom burrows and incubator and phoenix and tarp. I'm a hammock gear holic what can I say. With all this 7D and cuben quilts coming out I wanted to see how I could lighten up.

    edit: why do I have a sad face above my post....I think hammock gear I think happy.
