    I’ve been known to carry up to 6 McDoubles at one time, they’re so processed they can last longer than that. I have a friend that’s carried 10+ at once. Don’t try that with a real hamburger.

    Enjoyed the report. I saw you on Bryan Delay’s video a couple weeks ago, that was cool. They make a wider version of the NeoAir Ex-lite you might check out.
