Re: Gauley

Best vid of the year in this forum, IMHO. Was that higher than the "normal" release?

Re: Learning "Best Practices" for using Sit-On-Tops

Re: Meat Allergies and Ticks

Thanks, Sig. I went looking for that post right after I asked the question. I never med Stan but had talked to him on the phone.

This whole tick-meat connection is a news flash for me. Glad that slice of pepperoni went down just now w/o any trouble.

Re: Meat Allergies and Ticks

As a peanut target myself (and they're hidden in a lot of things), I would not have guessed that an allergy to meat would come about that way. Glad you figured it out.

Re: Gulf coast kayaking

Immersion Research Royale Skirt MW LC $149

I have a brand new I.R. Royale Skirt that doesn't fit. This skirt retails for $235. Medium waist, large cockpit. The "Large" cockpit size is too small for many kayaks. Check the IR web site to see if it fits your boat. Last year's model.
