  1. Where’s the video of you donning and doffing?

    • The video is coming! Takes a long time to edit.
      Doffing? Do you think TWiV is kinky or something 🙂 ?

      • any news about the video? 🙂


        • Video is in the last stages of editing, and we plan to release it by the end of January.

          • You recommend the suit up video often. But you do not say it is not TWIV 200 (the picture for which has the suits that are not apart of 200 video). Please add that the suiting up video is in the show notes of TWIV 200.

  2. Truly, it is amazing the advances in technology today, it is very good and gratifying to know that there are people who engage in this important work. The video I found very good as is explained.
