Vests, part II

So I got a vest, a Patagonia Micropuff. No, I did not pay anywhere near the list price, or even that sale price. It may not be the lightest, ,maybe not the warmest - but hey, I'll take it.

It layers well under my Thermawrap parka, and is warm as all get-out. I intend to take this layer with me to Bozeman for WT3, just in case.

Dear Matt,

My name is Taylor Marshall-Green, I’m the content manager and editor for a new and exciting website, and we want you to write for us. After following your blog “Thru-Hiker in the Making,” we feel you’d be a perfect fit as an exclusive contributor and team member of Marble Play. Your style, passion, expertise and voice would be a welcome addition to a website that will reinvent how people get active and stay active.

We expect to launch this Fall, but Marble Play will focus on sports, recreation, fitness and lifestyle. It’s all about getting out to play. Go find a new buddy for tennis, go trade scuba gear, go read about how walking to rehabilitate one’s hip also rehabilitates one’s mood. From little league to bar league to senior league, Marble Play will help people discover new ways to sweat, socialize and play. Here are some of Marble Play’s exciting new features.


• Fit Living (Articles, Nutrition, Go Play, EZ Tips)
• Facility Finder (Indoor, Outdoor, Public, Private)
• Experts (Sports, Nutrition, Men, Women)
• Rules & Etiquette (Definitions, Rules, Etiquette, Gear)
• Entertainment (Movies, Music, Videos, Documentaries)
• Print & Web (Books, Mags, Blogs, Websites)
• Media Casting (Webcast, Broadcast, Radio, Podcast)
• Quotes (Popular, Marble Play, Celebrity, Motivational)

NEWS (National, Local, Events, Forums)

Not to mention so much more available at Marble Play: our exclusive buddy-up feature, classifieds, shopping and our unique My Marbles page, where Marble Play users can fashion their own page to include only what interests them from the world of sports, recreation, fitness and lifestyle.

I would love to talk further with you about this writing opportunity and the incentives we can offer you and/or your business or product: local and national exposure, attention from sporting clubs and unique advertising possibilities.

I look forward to hearing from you – and hope you’re ready to play.

Many Thanks,

Taylor Marshall-Green
