Re: EDIT: Granite Gear Ruff Rider Dog Pack, Initial Report
- Hi Jim! Sorry it's taken me so long to respond to this; I had an
unexpected (and scary) hospital visit this week. Not to worry, I'm
amazing well now, considering!
I really appreciate this edit--great job, thank you. In fact, I used
one of your suggestions word for word. I considered all of them and
used most, but humbly beg to differ on your suggestions re: High
Sierra and Sierra Nevada, both of which refer to the mountain range
(singular) I live in (on?) and both of which were the subject of
debate here quite a while back.
Again, thanks for the edit, most helpful. I'll now upload...
