    Always makes me sad when it is time to launder and pack away the wool for the year.

    Same here,

    Our wool, at least most of it, never gets put away. The winter shells do get a break though.

    Ditto. We usually only really get about 4-6 weeks of hot weather here, and even then the wool never gets put away. Man, I hate the summer! We're not there yet, so my favourite merino wool hoodie stays in my pack. :)

    Better prepare for the winter, it's down to 30 F during the night and between 60 and 70 F during the day in the Southern Finland right now. From FMI.fi

    Yesterday, it was 85 degrees at 8:30 in the morning here...and high humidity. I don't camp anymore until late September. And we won't talk about the bugs! The town of Clute, Texas, just down the road, has a Mosquito Festival each year.
