    Default Where has your STP fleece been?

    This weekend I wore my STP fleece to and from England. On Friday it went to Blenheim Palace NW of London. On Sunday it was seen all along the eastern coast of Devon in SW England.

    Cold, windy almost rainy days and I was warm and toastie. Where have you been with your fleece?

    Free advertising all over the world is legal for a STP fleece.

    Sadly I don't have a fleece since I was too much of a slacker at fundraising this year. I have however been wearing my STP shirt and displaying my pack tag when I hike. This weekend I met a couple of people on the trail (in NH) that pointed to my shirt and asked me about the event. One said that he had heard of it and thought about it but not done it before. I hopefully talked him into it for next year. Advertise at every opportunity! My current philosophy is - if you can't be a better fundraiser recruit others that are perhaps better...

    Mine made the trip from VA back up to NH for the Flag on the 48 hike. Though it did make it to the summits, it wasn't actually cold enough to have to break it out.

    I did wear my STP8 shirt on the hike up and changed into the STP07 on at the first flag. Saw a guy on the way down that looked at me kinda puzzled, pointed at the shirt and said, "didn't you have the same shirt on earlier, but it was gray?"

    Keep them thinking - and display your shirts and fleece and spread the word about STP.

    I have started planning for STP09 since I now want a 2nd fleece. That way I can have one large and one medium depending on how many layers I have underneath. We are going to have 2009 STP fleeces aren't we?

    My STP fleece has been to Martha's Vineyard for Columbus Day weekend, and to the valley office of the Obs daily for work. There WILL be an incentive for STP 09 topfundraisers but we've not yet decided on what. I do love hiker feedback...

    Lets stick with the fleece again for one more year. I have a large so I can wear bulky things under it. Now I need a medium for warmer weather.

    My fleece got to a hot air balloon festival last weekend but had to wait in the car. It was not cold enough for it to venture out - was low 30's - and I was in shorts - so, I would have looked funny - and would not want to do that.

    This weekend it will get to a Renaissance Faire outside Charlotte, NC but the forecast is for the mid-60's and too warm again.

    At the end of next week it has told me we are heading north so it can go out to play.

    Finally saw my fathers a few weeks ago. I was very jealous of it and will definitely be working on getting one of my own this year. Not sure where his has gone but I know it was at my condo!

    My fleece went to take pictures at Duke Chapel this morning in Durham, NC before sunrise.



    Then went to Chapel Hill for sunrise. It is a very educated fleece.

    Default Beautiful shots!

    Great pictures. The sky in the second one is incredible. I'm clearly going to have to work on getting a fleece this year so that it can help me take pictures like this...
