""Maybe. Why? You got winter clothing or gear to give away??"

In the event this is some sort of strange give away, I would like to throw my name in.

Does being 5'8" and getting really cold whenever I backpack count? I was acknowledged as the most heavily dressed at the recent GGG around the campfire in ~30 deg F temps (and still felt very cold).

No, I was the gal on Saturday night wearing, um, 5 layers not counting underwear: baselayer, nano puff,thermawrap vest bought on the spot from Mark Verber, Costco down jacket, and windshirt. Windpro fleece hat plus hood from Costco jacket on my head. Softshell pants plus army surplus insulation pants. Wool socks, plastic bag VBL, and finally some chemical handwarmers in my shoes (thank you John Abela!!!). And yes, I was still cold. Sad but true.
