Christmas Gear! on 12/25/2008 13:10:06 MST Print View

What gear did Santa put under your tree this year?

I got a Marmot Pounder sleeping bag and an REI giftcard!

Not sure about the pounder, may exchange it for down as I'm a cold sleeper, but all in all, a great Christmas.

Well, I was hoping for a lot more with the 40% off sale. Everything I "need" is out of stock. Anybody else having this problem?

Re: Christmas Gear - Want a 2008 ULA Circuit? on 12/25/2008 15:07:38 MST Print View

I got the SPOT...which I immediately returned for a set of Gossamer Gear Light Trek 4 poles (on order at this point). I also got the 2009 ULA Circuit.

With that said, anyone want to buy my 2008 ULA Circuit purchased in roughly Aug/Sep 2008 and used ONCE over a weekend. I can be VERY flexible on the price. It looks new and has nothing wrong with it. Size Large with XL belt...and I'd be happy to knock $20 off the agreed price if someone wants to get a smaller belt from ULA. This was new for $200ish just a couple months ago.

A pair of Smith Hudson sun glasses which I promptly lost in the Pacific Ocean trying to stay up after a hard hit from a wave. Forgot I had them on!

Ha...postal scales! on 12/25/2008 19:43:34 MST Print View

I asked for this and was told it would just lead to me buying more stuff! But nice to see other people are "out" to their families as ounce-obsessed.

Lightweight Fish Rod/Reel on 12/25/2008 21:14:27 MST Print View

Brand name on the box is Coleman. Site the manual references is "http://www.telebrands.com/FishPen.html".

My wife picked it up at the local Bed, Bath and Beyond store.

Using my nifty new digital scale it comes out at 5.8 oz for the pole and reel. It does warn that it is only intended for fish up to 2 lbs.

I'll be giving it a try at Isle Royale this year ...

Not much on 12/25/2008 22:25:38 MST Print View

Small keychain thermometer and an eyeglasses strap. All other gear I wanted that anyone knew about was out of price ranges or I bought it myself.
