I ain't missing this one over a job.
That's probably true, but figured I'd get it done while it was fresh on my mind. I tend to get busy and push stuff like that out until it's a scramble to find lodging.

Regardless, it's done.

Honestly, I only snore when I drink! You can ask my wife!
Seriously, if someone wants to share a room for the GS Trophy, PM me soon. Those photos make me drool, smile, and wince all at once.

EDIT: Booked a room at the Holiday Inn. PM if you want in.

Well the guy who runs the S500 doesn't return emails, and neither does Klim apparently.

It isn't like the people running the s500 do this as their day job. Given last weeks was a holiday week for most before the kids went back to school, they might not of been on top of their email.

I don't have an answer for Klim other than looks for alternate contact info.

Klim responds to me every time I contact them. It was a holiday weekend too so you have to account for that. They are a great company with awesome products. They passed with flying colors on my last crash test.

You should call Klim. They answer the phone and can take care of your issue then and there. I would not ask for a refund. Their products are great, not yours in this case, and they deserve the chance to make things right with you. I do not think it is too much to ask for a replacement rather than a repair. You may even want to consider a different style as perhaps there are issues with the ones you picked.Give them a call and kill them with kindness.I find it is better to start that way.

Got them on the phone. They won't do a replace. I've got to ship them back. Hopefully it won't cost too much.
