I came home from my last field op in August 1991,it was a miserable 3 day survelliance of a pot field on the side of a ridge.Between the rain at night and the 95 degree days,I was beat.When I got home,I emptied all of my mag pouches and other pouches[compass,first aid,canteen]and hung the harness in the garage to dry out.That was the last time I used it.Yesterday,I was fooling around in the garage and found my old web gear.After cleaning it up,I tried it on.The damn belt must've shrunk or something,there's about a 3 inch gap between the buckle!

I think that could be from all the humidity and such that we get on thanksgiving. [;)] Just kidding. I've noticed my pistol belt kinda' does the same thing when I hang it up to dry after it gets all wet from snow and rain.

I've slowed down alot in the last couple years.My son will be 2 in December,since he came into the world I stay home.Its been a big adjustment for me,I turned 40 back in July.I never even thought about having a kid,but,I spend all of my off time with him.I've also gone from a 30" waist to a 32" in the past 2 years.[beer]

I still wear the same size pants I did ten years ago, I just wear them a lot lower now.

Maybe all the food you've been eating has been diffusing into the belt through the time space continuum. [;)]
