Oh, What A Tangled Web We Weave

When first we start kidding ourselves.

I wouldn't be caught dead in polyester. Only natural fabrics for me, you dig?

Now, my kiddo, Extreme Wilderness Girl, introduced me to some high-tech backpacking pants made with a new technology fabric that is all things to everybody.

Light-weight. Tough. Resilient. Water-Proof. Sun-Resistant. Walk 30 miles and have the stove lit before you can unbuckle your belt.

Well, I loved my high-tech backpacking pants so much, I bought more than one pair.

They are light-weight. One remains cool while covered. They have extra material at the knees because, apparently, we, Extreme Wilderness Types, squat down a lot.

I may look like I just tumbled out of the laundry bag, but I am hip because I am HIGH TECH.

But it occurred to me the other day, as I was hanging up my lovely, high tech pants, you know what these feel like ... ?
