Jared and I rode to Aerostich's Open House Saturday. Rain and temps in the lower 50's to lower 40's provided ample opportunity to try out my Darian Jacket and AD1 pants. I won a MSR titanium two pot set set, and purchased a back protector and a t-shirt.
Sunday morning we had round two of gear testing. Despite being wet on the outside, I stayed warm and dry inside my jacket and pants. It was cold enough at home to turn on my furnace to warm the house and help dry out my gear.
Here's some info on the pot I won as a door prize. It's a sweet titan titanium two pot set from MSR sans handle pliers.

Pipestone National Monument at about 4:30 pm. Toured the inside exhibits and went for a 30 minute walk around the ancient grounds.
Split Rock Creek State Park. It was nothing fancy, but sites were available near the lake.
Pipestone Chamber of Commerce. "This area of Minnesota, called Buffalo Ridge... is a glacier-deposited ridge that runs diagonally accross the state. Because of its higher eleveation of 1950 feet, the area experiences continual wind speeds of 18 mph. This and the plentiful open farm and pasture land make it an ideal place for wind turbines."
We arrived back at Jared's for a special late lunch of foie gras, brie, french bread and other charcuterie.
