[at-l] Why I don't reply to the list

[ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ]

  Either way G.O.  I love to hear what you have to say ... you have some
pretty good insight... by the way... what kind of sleeping bag do you have?
I am having a heck of a time looking for one that is comfortable... I have a
sandman now but at 4 lbs I am looking for something lighter and possibly down.
