Yup, gotta love those "move when you move" form-fitting cave duds. My suits from Gonzo are acutally a spandex/nylon blend, great for warmer caving like Texas (where GGG is located).

I love that Daleswear suit, especially the virtual absence of explosed seams (the exception being the flap over the zipper, pretty minor). I did seamseal my "hockey kit bag" suit, a lot of the BCCR camp folks bought them and really caved hard in them during the camp with very little wear visible.

Gotta go, noontime 12-step gear meeting. I'm bringing the catalogs.

caverdoc: There's not much room to store gear in a dorm room. Balister was telling me stories about you. :grin: I'm pretty good friends with him.

Scott McCrea: The machine works great. But to make it work, I had to do some modifications. A really nice feature is the free arm. I also think the machine is about 3 times my age.

Wow! I have an identical Sewing Machine. My mother brought it new - in 1955.

It looks like you replace the cords. I still have the originals. Runs great.
