If you want to carry all those new fangled gadgets that is fine with me. Just remember that after by the time you get all that "modern lite weight gear", you end up carrying nearly ONE HUNDRED POUNDS of "lite weight gear". So be careful of all that NEAT stuff. (Big Grin) As the leader of the "hike" I will not be able to follow and refuse to suck up anyones "errant molecules of comfort" for I shall be in me own form of 18th century comfort. That`s good enough for me. I will still take it easy on those of you who are "air conditioner dependant" (Very Big Grin)
: : Gadget Girl Here! (that's me, Diana, who has always loved any kind of gadget, why if Hawkeye had been an inventor AND a frontiersman, I'd be hopelessly lost) and along with my partner in crime and travel, Gear Girl (that would be Cecelia, one of the true living clones of "Martha" - Stewart that is) have decided to graciously share our secret Gathering weapon with all of yous in advance, since there is NO WAY you're borrowing ours!
: : *Clabert, this may be too hard for you to take, so read further only at your own risk*
: : Our new *secret* Chimney Rock Cliff Trail hiking, Linville Gorge trekking, waterfall visiting, Table Rock scaling, Biltmore House walking ANTI-GLISTENNING weapon is the ....*drumroll here* ...URBAN SURVIVAL DAY PAK (hence known as USDP) complete with hydromister cannister!. There you have it, our secret is out. Being the benevolent, queenly, cliff hikers that we are (a Doc Mary snort here*), and the fact that we couldn't bear the thought of enduring all the pitiful, covetous, sweaty faces of our cherished friends and MohicanLand neighbors, we have outed our hydration miracle (aka Hot Cliffs Air Conditioner) to give all desirous of said hydration miracle the chance to acquire one.
: : This USDP is complete with dual insulation holsters for prefrozen water bottles, several small middle compartments for storage of items of your choice, and finally *another drumroll please* the manual compression super-duper hydration cannister which is neatly attached to the bottom of the USDP. From this cannister extends a plastic tube which straps to one's forefinger and emits a cloud of cooled air (up to 30 degrees cooler) out in front of you for you to walk (climb, run, etc.)through. BEE's KNEES, HUH???
: : Well, if any of you find this hard to believe, we may allow you to briefly walk behind us to partake of any unused particles of *cooled air*. These mystery misters may be found at our VERY EXCLUSIVE, very quaint, little shopping nook...TARGET, and sure to outpace the technologically inferior spritzer fans that were sighted along the cliffs last year (that's right, you know who you are, you can keep your little gnome-sized spritzer fans ALL to yourself this year while we "frolic" along the cliffs with our HAWKEYE HYDRATION HONEYS...hehehe). There will be a special preview of the USPD/HHH being held for a private viewing by the Sweetsers Four in California next week. Perhaps one of them will provide further reviews!
: : Until the next "gadget" comes along, this concludes my report,
: : Gadget Girl - TTFN (Ta Ta For Now)
: O' Exalted and Benevolent Gadget Girl,
: I bow to your phenominal perspicacity and capacious cleverness in finding this ultimate of cooling devices! Just the description of it fairly boggles my mind (not that my mind is ever UN-boggled, doncha know, boggledness being its more-or-less natural state)! Color me impressed, amazed, and greedily envious! Target will be my next stop today, you can rest assured. Between us, we should be able to lower the annual mean temperature of western North Carolina by a significant amount, I should think, as we go traipsing merrily along, misting and singing, tra-la, tra-la! Imagine hot, old sweaty Clabert & crew, following in our Footsteps of Coolness, trying in vain to suck up a few of those errant molecules of comfort! heheee Please say you'll allow me to be a Charter Member of the HHH Club!
: Once again, I salute you, Gadget Girl, and Cecelia, the Gear Gal, and tender you my utmost respect for this revolutionary discovery!
: She-Who-Fervently-Hopes-That-This-Makes-Persona-#21!! (*me, sticking my fingers in my ears, and making a loudly rude noise in the General DI-rection of Lainey's Edict!!!)....
: *my work here is done...I...AM...OUTTAHERE!!
