    Happy Holidays: Thanks to you, $1,769 to Adopt-A-Minefield

    Many of you know that each year we do something special to thank our customers and the members of the TOM BIHN Forums. This year, we're proud to donate $1 on behalf of each forum member (there are 1,769 forum members) to Adopt-A-Minefield. Adopt-A-Minefield's campaign is to solve the global land mine crisis. All around the world, innocent civilians, often children, are injured or killed by these left-overs of armed conflict. If that wasn't bad enough, both domestic and wild animals are killed by land mines as well. Adopt-A-Minefield is working to remedy this unacceptable state of affairs.

    You, our customers and TOM BIHN Forum members, have made this possible. Thank you!

    We're now off to spend the evening with friends and family. We hope all of you have an amazing holiday!
    Current Carry: Skookum Dog Citizen Canine, Founder's Briefcase, Synapse 19 (day hikes), Guide's Pack (longer day hikes), Yeoman Duffel (winter/emergency stuff for the car), Aeronaut 30 (travel), Night Flight Travel Duffel (camera bag), Moveable Feast + Shop Bags (food)

    You guys are lovely, working as hard as you are doing, and especially during the holidays season. You still find time to honor us, the forum members, by helping a worthy non-profit which in turn helps humans and animals.

    It warms up the heart and soul, thank you again.
