OK,.......Switchback is out,.........Tortoise is out.........I will do it
I  will be the next  ''BILL  GATES''  of outdoor recreation.
Backpackers still have first choice to come in on the ground floor and reap
huge rewards.

Minimum investment $10,000......this offer expires 5-31- 07.
Send your check or money order to JMT Reinhold.

We need a good eye catching marketing strategy that will capture the nations
attention......this is how we will do it............we  will sponsor
''CATRA''  and donate a ''CUPIDS  COT'' made for two for her upcoming  PCT
women's record attempt and I will give one to ''SCOTT & MICHELLE'' as a
wedding present.

I can see the headlines already.....''CATRA CORBET'', foxy middle age
endurance runner and her young,handsome french companion set new PCT record
utilizing the revolutionary ''CUPID'S COT'' made for two sleeping
system........''SCOTT  WILLIAMSON (king of the PCT)  and his lovely bride
''MICHELLE'',  for their honeymoon, will be hiking the 2650 mile PCT from
Canada to Mexico carrying a ''CUPID'S COT'' made for two.

This is dynamite.....we must move forward swiftly.
Lets see now,....the ''CUPID'S  COT'' for two must be ultra light (I will
try to keep the weight below 2 lb).....fold up small,..... have a canopy for
sun and rain protection and a build in quilt.
This will be an all-inclusive sleeping system for two, replacing the need
for a tent, sleeping bag, ground cloth and pad......all this for two and
under 2 lb.

This will sell like hat cakes.

Ooohhh yes,....a lightning rod.....it must be equipped with a lightning rod
to insure our romance minded customers have the ease of mind and do not have
to worry about being struck by lightning while doing what comes naturally in
the wilderness.
