Default I've made the leap.

Well, it's official - I now have a good 24" of shelf-space dedicated
to Capilene and all the other Wearable -enes out there. For years
I've struggled with where to store my long johns. First it was with
the ski gear, then it was with the biking and camping gear, and then I
broke down and bought some new stuff and now have sets dedicated to
both. Well along comes biking season, which currently happens to
overlap with subsistence living season, so there's no freakin way I'm
buying a whole new set just for that. So I've now got a dedicated
long undewear slot - instant access, 24/ 7 and 365 days a year.

You're a very sensible person. Traditional closets and dressers just
aren't made for people who dress in -ene all year round.

Good move. If I had separate sets for skating and skiing, I'd go
nuts, raiding the ski stash for a skate when it's 15 degrees out, and
borrowing from the skating pile for an April ski trip, then trying to
remember which goes where after it's washed....makes my head hurt just
thinking about it.

And what about...SHOW TUNES???

Hey, moneymaking idea! We could make a sorta reality tee vee thing,
call it something like, "Queer Bee for the Straight Ski". All about how
gay men should discard all worthwhile endeavors to help people who have
way, WAY too much gear and clothing -- not all of it very well washed --
organize their storage space. I'll be executive producer. Or
something. What does an executive producer do, anyway?

Yes on track lighting (w/standard disclaimers), and I stand on my AT
Skis far too infrequently to claim I'm a diehard proponent. Hell, for
free room and board plus access to the beer fridge I'd even take up
telemarketing.
