    Ed, Best wishes and much success, and more time to hike. Sounds like a plan.

    I sometimes go to the frig to look for a snack, get annoyed because I can't see what I was looking for because there is so much food in the frig. Then I realize , I shouldn't be annoyed , I should feel blessed that I have food. Some folks look in the frig for a snack and can't find what they want because there is little or nothing in there.

    So you betcha - Being swamped for orders is a good thing and the opposite of what was imagined was going on. Anyway, I mostly tried to imagine you had gone the ULA Brian F. route - cutting back to do other perhaps more relaxing things.
    Ed - Hope to see ya at Trail Days.

    Excellent news! You had us all worried there for a bit. Good luck finding some quality stitchers in the US!

    Keep it up, Ed. It may be just an underquilt and one of millions of things made each day, but for me, it keeps me warm, I like it, I'm happy to have it and I'm glad someone made it just for me.

    Thanks to everyone for the supportive comments. The past few days have been very incouraging and hopefully soon we'll be back on track again. In the meantime, it's SPRING--get out & go camping! Happy Hammocking....Ed

    Glad everything is o.k. I made my first hammock after reading your book and I've always received top-notch quality from my gear orders.
