I'll update when I get some usage on it.

During our house bugin we used the large Mr Heater Buddy which took the chill out of most of the house. Ran it with both...

Sleeping arrangement very important.
Especially a pillow that works for me. When we have a planned stay at a hotel, I usually take several of my bamboo fiber pillow if I want to get a decent sleep.

Re: Headlight recommendations

Thanks again. Yes I like the several Fenix flashlights I have, the only issue is the Fenix headlamp HLR60 doesn't easily double as a hand flashlight.

Friend and I are going to hit tent and trails outdoor store in Manhattan next week to try some hands on with some zebras and armytek.

Enjoying return of the show with Season 3.
Kooky shit with kooky vehicles equals kooky fun.
One criticism, I wish they cut out the whole donkey thing in the one episode..
Not a huge race car fan but I absolutely need me one of those Model X's, in the configuration that Clarkson tested..

Re: Recommendation for lightweight breatheable rainjacket

I just filled out the marmot warranty form on their support page and sent the item back as instructed.
Fyi I've done this for several other clothing products such as slidbelts belt, Brooks sneakers, etc whenevr the item failed and the OEM always seems to be fair with the claim.

Another vote for Marmot precip. FYI I had a zipper malfunction on my first after like 5 years of heavy use. Marmot replaced entire jacket free of charge.

Cool but couple important question. How long does it take to cut chain if you don't have someone putting a bunch of tension on it?

Re: "The Rain" on Netflix

Watched three episodes with my teen daughter. She and I like it so far.
Agree there's predictability and some general plot nonsense. But it has great cinematography and good production/sets.
