Two wet sticks are also unrealiable. Nothing is 100% if you study it long enough. Except America winning the World Series. Oops, Toronto won two, so that's not even 100%. I'll take the mini...

photagraphy, fishing, star gazing
I added the star gazing because I always stay up late when I am in the woods so it is fun to learn some things about those white dots above. There are some cool free downloads for it. I fish in the...

pillow cases work great
You can store it in the pillow case. Anything that can breathe and let it store in a relaxed state. I would keep it up high and away from any heat. Cats love the nice big warm bed that you made for...

Please don't
I could see this working, but if you do it, you're gonna open a whole new can of worms. Aerodynamic drag. If you have a big balloon slowing you down, you'll lose the gain of less weight. Ho...

Yeah, I have to go the other way on these guys. I ordered a jacket on clearance and they are the only ones that have it for that price. I paid for 2nd day shipping. I get an email 3 days later saying ...
