    That breath bib thing is a really good idea.
    The breath bib worked well .... will help on longer winter trips.

    Shug, maybe one day you could interview your neighbors? Mine would be calling the men in white coats to come get me if I was out in weather like that! Especially with the drum!!! LOL
    Another classic from Shug of the Great White North...
    Thanks ...... they just come and watch.... and shake their heads.

    Go for it ..... upper teens is c-c-c-cold!

    The BVC is gonna be good I think. Making a nice one now that snaps or clips on.

    We are expecting a foot of snow here over the weekend! Perfect for some winter tarp and gear testing!
    Ohhhh ... fun when snow is looming. Get out there!!!

    good thing your given name isn't "Archibald"...gettin up 2x to finish your first name would require an additional layer of clothes!
    maybe you could embroider "Whoo Buddy!" on your TQ bib!
    I like that Whoooo Buddy idea. Now... to learn that skill......

    Thanks for giving me the bug. Getting out will be good mental health therapy.
    Pads will do just fine. I got to -12 with just two pads before.
    Mental Therapy .... good!

    Thanks again. Enthusiasm is contagious
    Merry Christmas to you and your's!
    Thanks on the backwoods effects. I am doing the Drummer at our family Christmas show .... this was a good trial.
    Good luck on the snow .... fun, ain't it?
    Hippy Holi-Daze!

    When do we see the 'camera slide' how-to-video? Your productions are a thing of beauty. I make the family gather 'round the lap top every time theres a new shug production. Popcorn, shug and a crowd
    The camera trick is under wraps for now ...... very covert am I.
    That is too cool that the fam watches...... Anything for popcorn.

    Dress properly, regulate body temperature and be aware of your surroundings.
    60's in Fla...eesh. I go nuts when winter is here and the temps are hovering in the 60-70 mark.
    You are correct sir. Dress right!

If you really want to have some fun...PRINT your name in the snow and make sure that the letters are not connected to each other....that'll give the old muscles a work out!
    Thank you very much for the Christmas card stuff....maybe you should try out for the local marching band....on second thought.....maybe you shouldn't. But that doesn't mean we still don't love you like the frue redheaded child that you are. You continue to grow on us....but so does moss if you move very slowly.
    MERRY CHRISTMAS LADDIE!
    A happy Barefoot Child
    I am a printer!!!!
    Naw ... no marching band. I am on the football team.....
    I tend to grow and spread like untreated jock-itch.

    Winter hanging is really fun .... do it!!!!

    FAN-taaaas-tic!
    I'm doing the same testing now and I know what you mean about the breath vapor icing. I've taken to wearing a fleece lined neoprene face mask. Works well enough, but you wake up with a warm but damp nose. Sorta like a doggie.
    Stay warm!

    Enjoyed this last night on my phone ... and loved it even more on the PC late last night. Ya da man pal. Camera effect is working amazingly well. I like the way you did the out of the tarp slide. Loooooooking good!

    The "little" drummer shug is a riot! Hope it wasn't too late in the neighborhood!

    Great job of showing non-hammockers how things work, Shug!

    I use a balaclava over my mouth. I sometimes get a very dry mouth, but the balaclava keeps my mouth shut so it doesn't dry out. It also limits the frost generated by my breath.

    Thanks again for a great vid!
