Project Cubbins: Hat 298 - Green Mountain and Other Challenges Edition

Day 298 / Hat 298: Forest green, baseball-style cap with multi-color embroidery on front depicting the sun rising over the Green Mountains along with the words: "Green Mountain Challenge."

Interior tag reads: "Dorfman Pacific Headwear, 100% cotton, made in Sri Lanka, one size fits most."

From the SJTBOH and, while I don't know what particular challenge this hat references, I can tell you that living in the Green Mountain State had its share of them. 

Maybe it's the sun rising over the mountains that makes me feel hopeful that the official arrival of spring heralds a respite from the more dire of our challenges. 


PC 297: Yellow Letter
PC 296: White Sox, Southpaw
PC 295: Shamrock Shaker

Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?

A: One man's homage to Dr. Seuss and his second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins," which is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its publication in 2013, Project Cubbins is an attempt to document the wearing of a different hat or piece of headgear every day for 500 consecutive days. No do-aheads, no banking of hats, no retroactive entries. PC started on May 27, 2013 with Hat 1

Got hats? If you loan 'em, you'll get e'm back safe and sound!
