    Encountering a Kilt Prospect

    So I'm out and about on 9/11 Weekend sporting my USA Kilt's Casual in the Firefighter Memorial tartan with my old Phoenix Fire Department Crisis pack for a sporran.

    I'm at Lonely Dell at Lees Ferry on the Colorado River. Met a young man in his 40s and his lady. When he saw me he erupted, "Hey a kilt! I've been wanting to get a kilt and here you are. It must be a sign!"

    So we talked kilts and told him about X Marks and USA kilts - figured keep it simple since neither of us had anything to write on.

    Always nice to met a prospect with his mind already made up.

    Antelope Pass.

    Yes it was a HOT day in Arizona...perfect for a lightweight kilt and sandals.....

    I can't tell you how many times I've gotten comments like that, and how many people I've pointed to this forum. Never seem to see any of them in the Newbie board, though.
