    We will get a good blast of winter come Tuesday. If it makes you feel any better, winter has arrived a few hours to the north of us at the likely destination of the official EGL/Ontario winter hang.

    Great job on the underquilt. Is there a matching top quilt in the works?

    Man oh man, that is sooo pretty. I wish I could find 1.1 desert marpat for less than an arm and a leg down here. What's the upper limit of that beast? 15F?

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Impressive work. That will probably warm you up just wrestling it into place under your hammock! That one might need an extra suspension cord to hold it up against the hammock with all of that down pulling ...well er pulling down.

    Snow, what's that? It's nearly January here in Michigan and we haven't seen a bit of the white stuff. Awesome UQ you have there. Love the digital camo!!!
