    Procrastinators

    Am I the only one ? Had all hot blistering summer to work on the rig and here I am trying to get everything done in the last few days before our hang next weekend. New Fronkey bugnet today to replace the TED, had picked up 5 yds 28" of thulle which was too short. Exchanged for 7 yds and got $6.20 back in change! Made the Fronkey and probably dropped a few oz. Then had to go back to the old PLUG and gained those few oz. back. Still have to load the food bag and need to plan on a birthday cake for Grinder in the Dutch Oven. Envy those that can be satisfied with one rig. Tomorrow invloves voting, lab work at the doctor, finalizing kit, and a trial run on Grinder's cake and tire work on the Sherpa to tote everything. Wednesday rest up for the weekend! I love it, first hang of the season!

    If your looking for a procrastinator, I'm right here. Always wait until the last minute. Can have a trip planned for weeks, and it'll be the last day before I'm running around here packing.

    Not me, way too OCD, I pack, check it off the list, unpack, repack, unpack repack...it's a sickness...this is usually done weeks before the trip...I get too excited about the trips to wait around...

    You can add me to that list. Not only am I a huge procrastanator but I also Have ADD so when I do start working on my gear I am easily distracted.

    I'm too OCD as well. I always pack early and repack the day before I leave...just to make sure I've got everything.

    Now if it's something the wife wants me to take care of....that's a different story. Seems that can always wait until tomorrow

    If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would ever get done.

    I'm usually pretty good when it comes to gearing up. However, for months I've been holding off on joining an organization. No real reason just figured I'd do it later. They were offering a perk for joining that I swear ran into Nov. Of course I was wrong and when I finally went to join the perk was gone. Here I sit kicking myself.
