During the Christmas season, I can remember many times when I would check out the gifts under the Christmas tree that had my name on it. Often, I would judge a gift merely on it's weight. If it was heavy, it must be good. Lightweight, it was questionable. Although not always the case, to this day, I still find heavier presents more exciting, more mysterious.
Today, my new shelter "The Spinn Twin" from Gossamer Gear arrived on my doorstep. When I lifted the box, my first instinctual reaction was, "This is it?" It was like picking up a box with nothing in it. Then it quickly occurred to me, "Yes, this IS it!!! Light as a feather!!!" It's made of "high thread count spinnaker cloth" and is unlike anything I've ever felt before. I hope to practice setting it up this weekend. In this case light is good, very good.
