    Gear Trial this Weekend

    I will be taking my No Sniveler and my Snugfit to the Hoosier National tonight through Sunday. Predicting low to mid twenties both nights with 5 to 15 mph wind. I will also be trying out my latest Sock, and two piece sock that may or may not need to have it's cover put on this weekend. I will let you know how they did when I get back. Hey every one, thank for getting me going on making my own gear. I couldn't and wouldn't have gotten into it without you. Mule
