Big Mistake or Smartest Move? It depends on how you look at it. Smartest move because I found a ton of vintage wool fabric I loved. I would look every morning at the newest listing and find colors I loved which would lead to awesome waxed canvas and wool gear.
I know other gear junkies out there completely understand what I am talking about. The part that makes it hard is I used to laugh about it. I would think “how much gear can a person seriously need” and now I know. You can never really have enough gear! Ever!
