Here's what else I got today...Eddie Bauer..real clean but has that nylon smell... I'm airring it out...has a pocket for a pillow,pocket for a thermarest,totally waterproof underneath..How come they only used uncoated ripstop nylon for the top??? :o ..pretty cool though!It's laying over the rail.The pocket for the thermarest is 24" wide so it's wider than that..roomy.. :mrgreen:

okay..now I'm really getting spoiled...Today..luxury 2"thickx 24x72 thermorest wrapped in a "thermarest easy chair"....at about 10% of retail. :mrgreen: ..Ah..no Ucos.. :cry:

I hadn't found anything at that thrift store for quite awhile(since I was finding all the boots) and almost passed them up today..but I hit the St. Vincent's next store (yyk zippers 38" long,12 for 25cents each..kindof big ones,oh well)and figured..what the heck..I'll check them out since I was there.I had a coupon also for "buy something over $10,get something up to $10 for free..and picked up a flyweight nylon vest($8) for having front pockets while hiking..for my freebie...I think it'll pack down to one of the pocket sizes.. :DB: :DB:

Another nice find. I always wanted to try the thermarest conversion chair but have save $$ by just opting for a 1" closed cell foam Heat Seat and just use my backpack or a tree for a back rest plus I use it to set things on under my hammock, such as my pack, so they don't get wet.

Welcome back,Daren!..I'm assuming you had a nice trip with the weather we've been having around here. ;) You haven't missed much.. :lol:

Brass one!Only one I've ever seen,why I'm keeping that one.It's got some spots and tarnish(and needs inside cleaning and candles) but I can live with that.I'm keeping the other tealite one also..since I've got a bag of about 40 tealites the right size..

In the long run you'll regret keeping it. It'll take up too much room and continue to tarnish. It would be best you sell it here to one us :D
