    Funny how that happens, isn't it? At least now you will get less grief for any future gear purchases.

    Cheers

    When I brought my first hammock home my wife laughed and said it was like hanging food out for the bears. She laid in it and could care less. She says that if I have to drag her into the woods at least she gets to snuggle, so we tent when wife is going and I hammock when I can.

    The first BB I ordered was for my wife because I knew if she liked it (and she did) I would have no problem ordering more gear....but honey, I was thinking about you and did not want you to get cold on our next hang so I ordered you this nice down UQ,.... what do you mean its too big for you,.... well I will keep it then and order another smaller one for you, do you want yours in pink ?

    Picture is of wife's first time in her BB, After a about 2 minutes she fell asleep in it and when she woke up she said ..this is so soft and comfortable, can we take it on our next camping trip ?. Hook, line and sinker

    Well, obviously your wife knows a good thing when she sees it!

    So be encouraged that that is why she agreed to marry you!

    I had my AHE down booties stolen. Hers won't arrive for another week or so. Sounds like you need to start testing out new gear at the park.
