    Sorry to hear of your downward spiral, Hooch. Snap out of it, before you end up like me! Maybe a 12 step program?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    12 stpes from one end of the stored gear collection to the other end would make sense. Anything beyond 12 steps from end to end and you need to pile in more than one layer.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Do not despair, there are many gear junkies among us who share your affliction. But you won't find any cures around here - we're just a bunch of enablers.

    You don't have a problem Hooch. I have a problem. You should see my gear closet. Yikes.

    I hear good things about them. But I'm too busy buying & sorting hanging & camping gear to join.

    Also: I would stop buying gear but I'm no quitter!!
