Congratulations, Bentbrook! Thanks for all of your helpful contributions to the Trailspace community.

I hope you enjoy the AAC membership, but never need those rescue benefits.

Congrats Bentbrook! Great reviews, looking forward for more to come!  I'm an NC native too, way to represent!

Nice reviews, Bentbrook, (or as I've noticed some others call you, Brentbrook or just Brent) ;) I enjoy the range of gear reviewed, from a stove to wallet and everything in between.  

Hope you're okay with me doing this but if ya'll haven't checked out Bentbrook's blog, I'd recommend you do so. He has a link to it on his profile. His recent post titled, "The Bear" is definitely worth a few minutes of your time.

I'd say Bentbrook earned this one, alright!

Enjoy reading your reviews, sir, and especially liked the one on the Ti-Tri System.

Thank you, all! I am honored and thrilled, but it was reading reviews from you all that inspired me to take a stab at my own, so thank you, too. The AAC membership sounds amazing, but yes, Alicia, I hope I can avoid some of the benefits. I think my wife and kids might prefer that, too!
