      Thanks for the edits, Kathy! I don't know HOW you and John do it... You two are incredible. Changes made, uploaded and cleared out the test folder. Now on to writing apps...

      Totally apologized for the delay in editing. I'm still trying to catch up

      from ORWM. Any way, it sounds like you have been having so good Colorado

      winter fun in your jacket!

      Just a few minor edits and you are good to delete the test file and upload.

      See you in the next couple of months.

      I experienced strong winds, some good snowfall of 6 in (15, cm) and

      temperatures between 10 and 40 F (-12 and 4 C).

      EDIT: Delete the comma after "15" and before "cm".

      Under a heavy pack, this jacket is as comfortable as any other than I have

      worn. The fabric is soft and smooth and there are no odd seams to cause any

      chaffing under the straps.

      EDIT: While spelled correctly, wrong meaning - should be "chafing".

      While hiking, I find that a midweight or expedition-weight base layer and a

      fleece vest is just about the perfect combination with this jacket.

      EDIT: Should change "Is" to "are".

      Taking the jood on and off is really easy.

      EDIT: Change to "hood".

      Because the summer trail disappears and reappears, it is easy to get off

      track and have to bushwack through all sorts of shrubs

      EDIT: Change to "bushwhack"

      Hope you are having a great winter! I have my FR ready for you to edit.

      Too bad the snow is falling right now... 48 inches in Silverton? I know

      where I want to go! You can find the HTML at http://tinyurl.com/a8tzyre.

      Hopefully I have made the edits easy for you...
