Can you imagine that Tuck might have an epiphany while learning to sew and create a company like this? shesafari.com Which does not exist until 2005. Too bad it would have been fun for Val to run across their website while at Jane's.

The woman wearing the camouflage outfit makes me think about what Valerie looks like. Yeah, Val has lighter hair but the facial expression and general body language kinda match my mental image of Valerie.

The website is shitty IMO - it's possible to design a website that doesn't require a wide screen, or stupid-assed scrolling of an inline frame - and it seems like everything I've looked at is "Out Of Stock".

But, hey, Tuck could do a better website in 2001. And if Debbie could smell money in it...

Edit: And possibly best of all, what would Jane think when they sent her a catalog? *raucous laughter*

*laughs harder* Trying to grab some of the later students to be models for the catalog!

Glad I could entertain you! I just saw the ad for she safari in one of the magazines I see at work and thought about Val and hiking....
Then I imagined Val making something that fitted her for hiking in camo at Jane's (or sending Jane a picture of her in camo) and imagined Jane having yet another migraine because of something that Val had done...

Picture Val in an 1890s ball gown in woodland pattern camo.

After which I immediately see Jane, and possibly Sabrina and Debbie and a few others, with agonized expressions and blood spurting out of their ears as their brains hemorrhage.
*chortles*

Nah. But I could see various camo patterns being used on *corsets*. Wouldn't be any sillier than some of the patterns I've seen used.

Oh lord, woodland pattern camo "corset" that's *body armor*.

Now I'm seeing Tu-Val changing for some reason on the summer camping trip and getting "rude" remarks from Amy or Mike about the "corset".

"Hey, it's not stupid! If I rip my blouse, it won't glare thru. Same reason you guys are wearing OD T-shirts under your tops!"

"Plus it's NIJ Threat Level 2!"

"Dude, really?" Amy punches Mike in his (non-armored) upper arm. "Ow, bitch! Stop!"


Not that Tuck is stupid enough to restrict his breathing when carrying an n-pound backpack.

Well, it *is* useful back support.

Also, shouldn't that be n+(5*days_on_trail) pound backpack? Smile

I've not the brains at the moment to calculate the function. But 'n' is always greater than local weight. I'm not sure if the rest mass increases, but the weight (mass times local gravity) certainly does.

I'm fairly certain it is a geometric function too... Rolling Eyes

Backpacks on trail attract dark matter!
