Gear Weenie Paramus updates

I tool one more wistful trip up NJ Route 17 this afternoon to bid a fond 
farewell to the gear stores, my unoficial home away from school.

Deals I saw:  Ramsey Outdoor (201-261-5000) has a handful of salesman 
samples of Sierra Designs sleeping bags really cheap, $50-$100 bucks off 
regular price.  All synthetic, most around 20 degrees, some colder 
(actually they were all room temp at the time ;-)

Campmor retail store (1-800-CAMPMOR for the catalog, they can connect you 
to the retail store and save you the cost of the call!) has a bunch of 
great deals on boots!  I picked up a pair of One Sport lightweight 
leather hikers for $40, Sundowners pretty cheap too, as well as some very 
heavy ones by Vasque and Merril and many more.

your gear weenie,
(BTW, does anybody know about gear stores in Chicago, or climbing gyms 
also, thanks)
