My Locale Midwest
About Me My wife and I are originally from MI. Lived in VA for 6 years and really loved the area. But we've just moved back to Michigan, yeah! We couldn't stay away. I'm been an avid backpacker for about 20 years or so. After my first week long trip carrying #60 I started down the lightweight road. I like to make some of my own gear when I can. We love to travel and hike. I've been a designer all my adult life, primarily in the automotive industry but the last 6 years in aerospace.

fun?
I wouldn't say they're fun, but they are enjoyable. I almost always bring a couple cigars, usually Romeo Y' Julieta, and some alcohol. Could be wine, whiskey, or Guiness. They're...

I agree, not a nice thing to do. I think many companies do this though. I'd write an email to REI and see what they say. Let us know if you get any response. I too have been an REI member...
