    Most excellent! You are indeed fortunate to be working for a good outfit.
    If you can fairly reliably throw to 50 60 ' you are doing well, I rely on my bigshot, hand throwing is not my strong suit

    A good trick when the weather gets cold is to wear a pair of surgical gloves (nitrile from harbour freight work great) under your normal gloves. It adds a very small layer, but will keep you hands much much warmer.

    Thin cotton liners worked for me. You wouldn't think it, but that that extra thin layer really works.

    A hot thermos or 3 helps, depending on the cold.

    A single-burner propane camp stove heats soup and water quickly at lunch.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.
