Drysuit - $1M OBO

I have an older drysuit that I would like to part with. ;) It is an OS Systems non-breathable suit with latex feet, and a high quality dive relief zipper. Size large, or XL, I forget. It fit me well at 6'1". No drysuit is dry. The non-breathable fabric was never a problem for winter paddling. :...

Re: Spring social/Pot Luck Thursday April 27 at 6:30 pm

I am going to pre-announce what I made for the party tonight, so no one is frightened when they see it.

1. Toothpick mini-towers of BBQ chicken thighs, pepper jack cheese and a black olive garnish
2. Roasted red pepper stuffed with gorgonzola. They are ugly, sushi-like things, but delish!

Hi Bea - Kate and I would like to come. We will bring a non-dessert dish, TBD.

Yes, to the gear swap. Great idea. Chip, Johnnysmoke and I were just talking about this the other day.

(Please message me your address - I forget.)

Thanks for hosting!
