Re: [BackpackGearTest] Statistic; Long; OT?; Boring?
- It was not meant as a dig at Andrew. The statement was to give people a
starting guide to the information. I just thought some people might find
the statistics interesting. To bad it is so damn hard to format information
in a text email message.

- As keeper of the TEST CALL SCHEDULE, I thought I would just write a casual
email and accidentally let it slip that there are 39 items in the queue at
the moment and I haven't finished processing everything that Jerry, Dave,
and Bex have put up for scheduling...
I would imagine that if people knew this they might start paying close
attention, get their reports filed on time, and polish up their
- I need all SealSkinz testers to test their SealSkinz chillblockers for
leaks, and report via private email to me if you have not already done so.
- Is that 39 tests, or 6-10 tests with 3-5 items each?
39 tests would have me building an ark :)

That is 39 test series . . . . that Shane knows about.
I have about 10 e-mails out, and I still have a stack of cards to go
With this sort of gear traffic coming through, a lot more of the tests
are going to be three items from here on out unless they are "really cool".
It is also REALLY important that everyone answer Stephanie's survey (I
still have to do that myself). We need to know how much gear we can test
at a time. We are getting to the point where we are going to have to
start telling manufacturers that "no we can't test your entire product
line" because we are getting that sort of offer. We need to be able to
spread the wealth among them, and we need to know how many packs we can
handle, and which models to choose.
The same goes for shelters, footwear, socks, underwear, sharps, brights,
