    In our hemisphere, today is the official opening day of Cargo Short Season. It's always the first Sunday after the last eternal equinox in the days of aquarius before Memorial Day. That just happens to land on today!

    This means that I put away my jeans and boots for a few months and switch to cargo shorts and black Converse All Stars. Now I can carry my capo, clip-on tuner, slide, strap, and extra capo with me everywhere I go. In the other pocket I carry a can of BBQ beans and a can opener, in the other pocket I carry a compass and pig sticker, and in the other pocket I carry a tire gauge and a spare can of Fix-a-Flat.

    Also, I get to start mowing my yard now without wearing a shirt. I'm thinking about installing an elevator in our garage, and dare people to enter/exit before I do.

    Man, I love this time of year.

    For all the ridicule that cargo shorts get, I can't wear them because my legs are FUGLY. So hats off to all you guys who can proudly sport those tacky things!

    I just wear Jean's with holes in em, whichever chuck Taylor hi tops are nearest, and some shades. After winter stretching on this long, and days off not landing on good weather, I'm skipping the part where I'm outside a little and going right for sunburn deep enough to make the white in my tattoos "pop"

    I still can't do cargo shorts. But everyone should do as thegoodtexan. He has his capos near him; I'm missing my 2 favorite dunlop ones and am stuck with the other 4 now..........

    I wasn't aware that today was opening day of cargo short season, but somehow when I reached in my drawer to get dressed ... they were there calling my name!

    You need to try a cargo kilt so that you can get a lot of air "down there"...

    Already been wearing them for a couple of weeks now, as well as my Keen sandals.

    Shoes and pants are off the menu until October.

    That's the beauty of the Cargos. Folks say: Dude, nice Cargos!
    They ignore your legs.

    They're about all I see in the stores anyway. Kind of chilly for shorts today though

    Just a couple of hours ago, I was complaining about the heat. I"m still trying to cool off.

    Shorts are my preferred cover and variety is not important. I do wear those track pants...what ever there called. I think I wore jeans once last year in December.
