      I did use "stuff" a lot in those 2 paragraphs, didn't I?
      See you on the next one.

      > ### In the Long Term Testing phase, I used the Amphibian Pack for a further 6 day hikes or skis in the Rockies, all for distances less than 10 km (6.2 mi), and at temperatures from -15 C (5 F) to 10 C (50 F). There was some light snow falling on one of those hikes. ###
      > Edit: "those" implies a particular item or group, and it's unclear whether you are referring to a hike as opposed to a ski or to something else. A real nitpick, I admit, but I think it would read better if you said "the hikes."

      > Edit: You use the word "stuff" often in the LTR. I consider "stuff" an apt word for the contents of the pack, but somehow it became redundant in reading the LTR; also once in awhile some particularity would help the report. Take a look at the entire LTR and consider a revision or two.
