10469See ya' all in Hot Springs
- Sep 18, 2005Well, I am totally excited about this coming weekend!
Really looking forward to meeting some of you. Hopefully, there will
be time to ask my zillion questions....<g>....
Just for fun & giggles, I am contemplating bringing my LARGE
grocery-store-produce-scale. Maybe we could have a contest for
lighest and heaviest packs? ...hehehe! The winner/loser gets to
carry the extra food next time out.
Bought a used Bliss Silk a few months ago. Hung it in the back yard
yesterday and then a HUGE DOWNPOUR hit - buckets & buckets of rain.
No tarp... Left it hanging out there and about 10:30 AM today I went
to check it. Dry! Bone Dry! Amazing stuff that silk... No wind,
just a nice Sunday morning with temps 75-80 F and even the
straps/folds/knots were all dry. I have never packed the Bliss - just
got it to play around with... I will bring it to Hot Springs for
those who may have an interest.
