Wow! Thanks everyone for your kind words! I'm thrilled and proud, and now on my way to the Wind Restrictor website to peruse the merchandise!

For what its worth, that picture was taken at Camp Hale, home of the 10th Mountain Division during WWII, in the Eagle River valley near Leadville CO. They fought in the mountains of Italy towards the end of the European campaign.

Best,

Jim
