      Didnt send to the list, and I had one other item.

      The text on my laptop shows to be pretty large. It also came across
      the list as very large text. Might want to check it out.

      > > In November I hope to climb the super gully to Lost River Mountain (elevation 12,078 ft/3,681 m) but will take the Bear Creek loop which includes a stop at a natural hot spring/hot tub. I love getting into the mountains during the winter. There is an indescribable feeling of quiet and solitude when the pines are ladened with snow and the untracked white powder stretches out as far as one can see. It is a glorious time to be in the mountains. In December, I plan to snowshoe into Lower Palisades Lake (elevation 6,131 ft/1,869 m). I also plan to spend one night in a snow cave in Island Park in December. In January, I plan to cross-country ski into a Yurt in Harriman State Park (elevation of 6,128 ft/1,868 m) for one night and spend the next day skiing around the Park and in February, I plan to spend one night at Crater's of the Moon National Park (elevation 5,325 ft/1,623 m) where one can take a 7 mile trek through the Park on snowshoes or cross country skis. I usually spend one night near Warm River (elevation 5,260 ft/1,603 m) during March. In April, my family and I traditionally do an overnight bike trip into Teton National Park.

It will get extensive use in cool to very cold conditions at extremely different elevations. I will use the Flurry as both a layer of clothing during activities and for colder evenings in a sleeping bag.
