"That better be 800 cubic inch fill or Ken is gonna kick..."

Very nice Sven. Great idea. Perfect follow-through.

Sven, that thing is awesome. I wish I was small enough to use it...

Nice one Sven.

But you forgot to post specs. How much does it weigh, and what temp is it rated for?

Cheers,

Update engagement sleeping bag on 08/26/2010 14:12:06 MDT Print View

Hi guys -
it has been a while but for those of you who have been wondering what ever happened to the engagement sleeping bag (see thread and pics at http://www.pricescope.com/idealbb/view.asp?topicID=105931#1659748) - it all had a very happy ending!
I proposed with the bag (and ring) last year in April in the gardens of Versailles in Paris and she did say yes!
We just got married in Maine a month ago and are going to Corsica for a one-week hike on the GR20, followed by some beach-time.
Cheers,
Sven

That's great! I was wondering how that all panned out. Nice place to propose too. Glad she said yes. Many happy years together.
