Ergodyne Introduces Throwback N-Ferno Classic Bomber Hat, release, deep thoughts by Larry Eder

Besides a longbow, and an old wagon, this hat reminds me of my wayward youth. Fond memories, of hunting rabbits with Andy Wurm outside of St. Louis, Missouri in the late sixties and early seventies (that was mostly with long bow though). 

Next time I saw them, twenty-five years later, was in Northern California at Junior College Xc meets, where some of my favorite coaches would have duck boots and Bomber Hats. With flannel shirts, they could have been in Wisconsin, but alas, we were looking for our runners through the Tule fog. 

And with the winter we should have this year, the Ergodyne Throwback N-Ferno Classic Bomber Hat will be part of my winter Wisconsin look for walks in the snow, ice fishing, heading to a local watering hole, observing a road race, all of the above. Thanks to observant reader, Chuck Bartlett, Running Network's web director, who sent me the link with a note, " while this might make me laugh, you probably have four of these...." I can only wish.
