If you will recall, I did mention that Jason Bacon and Nina Bacon were off with friends of theirs from Great Britain, Lillis and David Lyon.  Brevity is important these days so if you would be so kind as to read the short note sent from Jason Bacon describing the picture which you see on this posting you will be far better informed than I could try to write.  Please consider that those of us who are a tad older than the Bacons and the Lyons are quite envious of their conditioning and high altitude pulmonary system which these two couples exemplify.  Congratulations to you all for your trek to Bhutan and your safe return through troubled regions of our terrestrial planet.

PS.  Happy Summer Solstice to all you other Druids out there.  BH

A patented, intimate blend of synthetic and natural fibers that accelerates the water release rate of wet fabric. It is set apart from other moisture management products because of its faster drying time, the aesthetics imparted by its natural fiber component and its permanently built-in odor eliminator, FreshGuard®.

We've chosen Dri-release for the inside of the shirt because of its multiple comfort and protection features - features that appeal to the extreme sports aficionados targeted by Latitude 15 including skiers, trekkers, climbers, sky jumpers, big game hunters and the like that often find themselves among the elements for hours or days at a time.

"I was so glad to have my Latitude15 shirt with me. It turned out to be the favorite piece of clothing I had with me and so I ended up wearing it for the most of the trip. The level of comfort it provides in an extreme outdoor environment is amazing and its ability to keep your body "climate controlled" is absolutely unmatched by other materials like fleece or cotton. I can only say: Don't leave home without it!"
