Thank you Andre' - Re: Owner Review: Asics Gel Cumulus running shoes
- PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL IN FULL. IT IS MOST IMPORTANT!
Thanks for your Owner's Review. It has been added to the Owner
Review Queue and will be picked up by an Edit Moderator soon. Do
not worry if nothing happens with it for several days. All our
Editors are volunteers and your report will be subject to an
official edit within fourteen days. If you have not had a response
from an Edit Moderator via the Yahoo Groups list within this
timeframe, please let me know directly at jdeben@....
To assist in this process, if this is your first Owner Review we ask
that you post only ONE Owner Review for edit at a time. Our
experience is that it is more efficient for both the Editors and
yourself, if you post your first review, have it edited, approved
and uploaded before you post your second and subsequent reviews.
This way we can work with you on addressing any standard BGT policy
edits which you can incorporate into your second and subsequent
reviews before submission.
If you are new to BackpackGearTest.org, welcome to the community!
The Editors will work with you, within their own time constraints,
to get your first two Owner Reviews approved and upload in a timely
manner. Once these first two Owner Reviews have been approved and
you have submitted your Tester Agreement you will be eligible to
start applying for Tests. If you'd like more assistance or guidance
with the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to
Jenn K., the mentor coordinator, at (mentor (at)
You may receive edits or comments from other members of the group.
These edits and comments, while not official, should be considered
carefully, and if you find them substantial, revise and re-post your
review. Incorporating member edits and re-submitting to the list
will usually result in a better review, as well as making things
easier for the official Editor. Please put REVISED in the subject
line of your re-submitted review if you take this route or make any
changes to your review BEFORE the review has been taken by an Edit
Additionally, it is important for you to monitor the Yahoo Groups
list to keep track of the progress of your Owner Review. Once an
Editor has taken your OR and made the necessary edits they will post
their comments to the list with EDIT in the subject line. Once you
have incorporated these edits into your review please use REPOST in
the subject line. When your OR has been approved by the Editor they
will use APPROVED in the subject line.
If you'd like to keep track of the progress of your OR, the entire
Owner Review Queue is posted to this yahoo group list on Fridays.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask via
the list or contact me directly.

- Hi André,
Thanks for the review in answer of the call, nice job. Here are your
edits after which it can go here;
***My longest trail experience with these was one week spent on the
Rheinsteig (Rhine Trail) in Germany, during which time I walked
roughly 210 km (130 mi) in them, with about 8000 m (26000 ft) of
Comment: sweet. Let's go hiking sometime
***I have other shoes that I sometimes hike in. I have a pair of low
cut waterproof/breathable shoes and a pair of high cut (just above
the ankle) waterproof/breathable shoes. They are both heavier, but of
course waterproof. They are nearly as comfortable as my running
shoes. I tend to choose them when I know or expect that I will be
encountering a lot of rain or very muddy terrain. I tend to go for
the high cut shoes when I plan to carry a lot of weight (like my
daughter in her child carrier). These are the reasons I choose shoes
other than my running shoes, which is to say that unless there are
particular reasons to choose other shoes, I wear the Asics Gel
Cumulus running shoes to hike in.
Comment: I do not understand all the info about your other shoes.
Wouldn't it suffice to say that "While I have other shoes, unless
forced to by conditions I wear the Asics Gel Cumulus running shoes to
***I truly feel like I'm walking on clouds - the thick, heaped
eponymous ones, too.
Comment: I think I stepped in a thick, heaped eponymous once ;-)
***I've put about 1500+ km (1000 mi) on these shoes.
Comment: Wow! I am impressed.
***and other shoes I have show much more signifcant damage
***They do comparatively okay on muddy ground - better than I had
***Excellent runing and hiking shoes.

That may be your kind of elevation change, but not your kind of
elevation. All of it *well* below treeline. Not the kind of views you
get in your neck of the woods. But lots of castles instead (I think I
posted on BackpackingTalk - http://tinyurl.com/3599qf ). But I'll be
sure to ring you up when I get to CA.
P.S.: Sorry about the slew of typos towards the end.
