    We almost need a thread devoted to "hunting camp faux pas". Nothing worse than a greasy food fart with a "surprise" in it.

    I understood this entirely and I'm 56 yrs old. Does that mean I'm hip, smart or immature?

    The coats I could not care less about but the ball caps, man you gotta bend the brim.

    Wearing your waders with the zipper in the back is a fashion trend that started in america's prison system. True story!

    Coal indeed.

    Now I just gotta get me a puffy. Those patagucci jackets look nice, but I can't justify spending that kind of money on something that isn't waterproof and might get ripped apart by a cast if it was gusty out.

    Maybe Patagonia will introduce a version for flycasters made from Kevlar?

    Ha! If you ever try to "deadleg" me, then I'll break your thumbs!:rolleyes: I don't take kindly to unwelcomed contact.
    I can always get a window open, one way or another, and get some fresh air, too.

    I have several cheap jackets that I alternate wearing, to keep from getting bored.
    Hats? I'm losing the baseball caps, bent or flat, unless I need one to keep the rain off my glasses when wearing a hooded rain jacket. Lately, I usually wear one of my breezer hats, kayking hats, boonie hats, or a hood over a ball cap. Gotta keep the sun off my big ears.
    I wear wool or fleece knit caps when its cold. Pulled down over my ears.

    Dime -
    Make sure you keep that round, stick-on label on the bill of the cap. You're cool if you wear a flat-brimmed cap, but you are ultra-cool if you leave the sticker on. Oh, and I hope you bought it large enough to tuck your ears in under the edge of the cap when you wear it. Then you are super-ultra-cool! All my homies wear 'em that way.

    puffy jackets are warm as fuck, flat brimmed hats look cool (as long as you take the stickers off).. why do you care?

    I think most of those posts were actually about farts and sexual orientation.

    "The greater part of what my neighbors call good I believe in my soul to be bad, and if I repent of anything, it is very likely to be my good behavior. What demon possessed me that I behaved so well? You may say the wisest thing you can, old man- you who have lived seventy years, not without honor of a kind- I hear an irresistible voice which invites me away from all that. One generation abandons the enterprises of another like stranded vessels." - Thoreau

    I was going to chuck all of this bull shit and go fishing. Hell, it's 64 degrees out. The sun is on my back and it's half way warm outside. I was in my shirt sleeves today. But my heart really wasn't in it as I could barely walk.

    Me and the old lady was moving shit out of one storage and putting it into a shed we bought. We figured it out that I've been throwing money down the storage shit hole for over 5 years now at about 6,000 bucks. We now have a storage shed that it 10x16 feet. Hell it's big enough to live in for me..

    I know nobody wants to hear about me, but this shit hole thread showed up and you all keep adding to it. So I put my $.02 here.

    It doesn't have a flat roof, does it? Cause all hell will break loose if it does.
