    GT UL Arrived

    I'm so freakin' excited that my GT Ultralight arrived today (Thanks Caveman!!!). I immediately did a whoopie mod and then went outside to hang it in some trees in front of our condo. Actually, right in front of my neighbor's condo (the two trees in front of their condo were the only ones suitable to hang it up).

    It was a little awkward when my neighbors looked out their window and saw what I was doing. They got up and closed their window blinds.

    To top things off, I embarrassed my wife when I made her come outside to take my picture in it around 5:30ish...when everyone else in our condo is getting home from work.

    Well, I only got to hang in it for about 10-15 minutes before I had to go in for dinner. I'm hoping to hang over night in it in my in-laws back yard this Thursday after Thanksgiving dinner.

    LOL

    Congratulations, Tuck.

    Of course, your namesake didn't care what people thought, either!

    But maybe your in-laws will not draw the curtains on you!
