Thanks for your input. It has been called to my attention that Backpacker
has changed ownership at least once in the past year and a half. But in my
opinion it does not justify ignoring correspondence and backing up their
commitments. I predict that we will be seeing and smelling those disgusting
cologne samples in the near future. Happy Trails !!!
