Russ,

While I haven't known you forever, I have indeed known you long enough, and camped with you plenty enough times, to know full well that you never sleep in a tent. You and that Claytor hammock are out in every form of Adirondack weather known to man and beast.

Nice score on the tent, though! ;)

Ordin, you are indeed correct. For $5 I couldn't pass it up.

I am not a tent hoarder. I hoard all types of gear. Stoves, tents, packs, ... I loan most of it out to people who are just starting out and donate much to the BSA troop I work with when a boy is in need.

... And on top of that you donate your time, sweat, and cartilage, to that other band of characters making mayhem in the Adirondacks.

Yeah, those guys (and gals) are freaks. We fit right in. :D

I have been looking again at the BRWF 50 mile loop we talked about awhile ago. We should make a go of it sometime in the near future.

In the meantime, I am doing something T-giving weekend. Not sure what yet though.
