    Hah... I hear that!

    I'm practically foaming at the mouth in anticipation... but, work is totally nuts busy right now and I'd be really screwing myself by taking the day off.
    Must...be...patient...

    Thanks for that offer!

    I got home tonight, walked in the door and the wife says "a package came for you!"
    Within 1.5 minutes I had it unboxed and strung up across the living room.
    She just rolled her eyes and went about her business.

    Initial examination: Top notch quality! It's a thing of beauty. Can't wait to get it out in the woods!!! It's also lighter than I was expecting. I got the 1.1 dbl with webbing suspension and for whatever reason I was expecting it to weigh more. Pleasant surprise! I'll weigh it tomorrow, in the stuff sack and including two 'biners (one CAMP Nano and one Metolious mini)
