How To Be a ChilliHead
You guys know that I (Julie) don't do much "advertising" for anybody in the club's website and e-mails, except for news and want ads from individual paddlers and club members. But you need to know about ChilliHeads, a company in Chattanooga that makes fleece outdoor clothing, which you can buy at www.chilliheads.com.

In the past year, I have been on two multi-day paddling excursions with the woman who founded and owns ChilliHeads. I thus have the honor of regarding Susan and her husband as members of my personal paddling tribe, and they are also old friends of other longtime members of the MBCAKC. This weekend, I wore and carried a ChilliHead pullover for two days of hard paddling and hiking (which included a tumble into very cold mountain stream while I was crossing it on foot over slippery rocks), and it made me a devoted ChilliHead. Susan and Darryl are terrific people and athletes. Susan's clothes are sharp-looking, comfortable, imaginative, moderately priced, well made, snuggly, and FUNCTIONAL. And they are ALL made in the U.S.A. by Susan and subcontractors under her supervision. Much of the fleece comes from recycled plastic.

Winter's coming on. I'm going to stockpile some ChilliHead leggings and hats. Check it out: www.chilliheads.com.
