    Sure it does, I draw the zipper down a bit from the waist a few inches and keep the balance of the legs closed up. I don't have much if any precipitation entry and warm, moist air can vent out the...

    Of course there was probably not a lot of forest around these hulks when they arrived where they lay. The lack of resources or interest in removing them are probable reasons for their being where...
