    Those would make for a good "fire blanket".  Good score.

Surplus Store called Army Barracks here in Maine. I went back today and bought 3 more.

They have other stores in New England and a website. Check it out and give them a call. They probably have more.

These Blankets are HUUUUUUUUGE!. They are almost too big. I am 6'4" and I can drape it over my head, wrap it around me and it almost touches the ground.

They aslo have a nice feel to them.

Here is the link. They do not have any listed but give them a call.

www.armybarracks.com/shop.asp?CatId=53&SubCatId=534


BTW - The Italian Wool blankest listed for under $20 are also top notch and large. I have a few.

Anyone know of a place that has these blankets and will take paypal?  I have to wait for my new card to show up, and I have money sitting in my paypal account.

Hmmm, I bought two, plus some other stuff totalling $90ish and shipping was $13 to Texas.  Make sure you're not on 2-day shipping or something.

Got my blankets today, they seem very nice and worth the price.  Huge and heavy, and big enough to be doubled over on smaller beds.  No bad surplus smell.
