Recessive Packing Gene

We've rented a camper for the weekend. A nice chance to get out from behind the keyboard and spend some time outdoors with my wife and two kids. I used to go camping with one backpack, now it takes a quad-cab pickup with the bed fully loaded and a 14 utility trailer to haul all the crap for a 2 night rental. You want funding for mapping the human genome? Just promise you'll find out what it is about a Y chromosome that requires 5 pair of socks, per person, for a two day trip! Case in point, Gilligan, the Skipper and the Professor, they wore the same clothes every episode for 3 seasons. Mr. Howell was married, he had 14 smoking jackets for a three hour tour.
