    I'm not THAT worried about my gear (but will admit I am hoping for a miracle solution to present itself for staying warm). I am trying to keep my mind occupied, because I'm going crazy with this wait. For example, as I was slumbering off to sleep the other night, I came up with this idea for insertable nostril filters a non-smoker could wear in a bar or the home of a smoker. Somehow they'd mold to your particular nostrils and you'd just put them inside, but you'd have to breathe through your nose all of the time for the air to be filtered. Man..a little scary to think of what crap will come out of my head when I finally give it time to catch up!
    Gotya. I have 3 or 4 things to finalize then I am there.

    Ohio just went smoke free this month. I love the smell of fresh air over my beer.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Beer just isn't beer without cigarettes...just ask the thousands of nonsmokers who smoke when they drink

    If a non-smoker smokes when they drink....then they aren't a non-smoker...they're just a closeted smoker! Maybe the beer companies can come out with a beer with cigarette-infused flavor, so the non-smoking policy in bars won't affect your enjoyment, and people like me who are extremely allergic to smoke can also enjoy the bar scene! huh? huh? How's that for a great invention idea!!
    This is my signature.

    I agree with you there. I really hate smoke from cigarettes. I'm really glad of the ban. Mainly because the resturant where I work is smoke free now. I never work the smoking sections, but that really doesn't make a difference. Now I get to laugh at all the smokers huddled up in the cold in front of the building.

    Lol...

    Y'know, one of the best billboards I've ever seen was across I-95 from the Phillip Morris headquarters in Richmond. It read, "Even communists are allowed to smoke."

    For me, its more of a principle than anything else. Could I wait a few minutes or even an hour to have a cig? Sure. Should I have to? Not on your life! And don't even get me started on smoking restrictions outside. OUTSIDE!!!! Might as well get ready for the concentration camps...

    Topic?

    Oh yeah, styrofoam insulation... I think it might be impractical.

    What's the insulation rating of cigarette filters?
