    The girlfriend will be out of the country for a week in March. So, I'm thinking I might be able to crank out quite a few videos that I've been wanting to get done. I've just been so dang busy lately.

    Thanks dude!
    I know exactly what you mean. That down likes to stick around forever, it's a lot like an ex-girlfriend. You just can't get rid of it no matter how hard you try.

    I would think they be great in the windy Spring as well.

    I'd love to see a Fronkey (easy on the eyes, smart, and handy around the house) sock DIY video.
    If you do one, I hope you will add some of the mods(pullouts, etc) we discussed.

    thanks for a great video on how to deal with down.

    Are you suggesting a video on how to make one? I actually haven't even thought of that. lol I would probably have to hold off on that one until next year. I am going to mod my current sock so more because I was thinking more about it and I think the side that I put my head would be a great place to add some tie outs.
    I do however plan on doing a good walkthrough of my sock next time I take it out. Which I'm hoping is soon as long as we get some cold weather.

    Thanks for watching!

    No scissors. Use lazers

    The tub has to be exactlly 13 inches deep or it won't work.

    If the wife is in town don't do it. If the girlfriend is in town, then get down.

    Use 3 oz and an armadillo in each baffle. You'll thank me later.

    You can use groundhog pants too. But, do not use Earth day pants!

    If you look like Gene Hackman from "The French Connection" than your good. But, if you look like him as Lex Luthor, don't even attempt this project.

    I have no idea what an under quilt is.

    To get down with down you must go to the SHT and throw in exactly 73 cents into Egge lake.

    Bird feathers will work. But, the best come from dragons.

    haha That's what I thought you were doing.

    I think what I'll do is if anyone has any questions I'll just tell them to PM Grizz.

    Hey Fronkey,

    Great video on stuffing down. It looks pretty mess free the way you did that.
    Take care,
