That's just not fair, is it? I'd like to see what a VO2 sold for, and maybe an Ultra 20.

I seem to be starting some trouble, oh boy.

I see that they're doing 30%-70% off. What will it be? Will the Rush pack be $56 or $24?

Is there anyone out there who has been to this event in the past who can give us an idea of what prices to expect? (COUGH - Jason Klass?)

it really varies. Stuff they're blowing out because it's changing is cheap, stuff that's mostly sticking around isn't that cheap. Usually they come out with a price list at some point.

I may be able to go buy things for people but no promises yet. I'm headed down to the Arizona trail and can check back in when I'm back. I should be back for the sale but who knows.

The sale is awesome and a great way to get good deals. Sometimes I feel like a walking Golite advertisement but, its a good sale and gotta stretch that dollar.

They hand out a price list while you are in line. Basically, if you want sleeping bags, down gear and any of the 70% off stuff, like base layers, go first day and sizes in Large and Medium are the first to go.

If you can't find your size or item, ask one of the EE's and they sometimes have more in boxes some where.

I'll be there for sure, need a windshirt and I'm sure something else I'll convince myself I need.

Do either of you know if the tents are usually at the 30% off mark or otherwise?

It totally depends. Old stuff is usually bigger discount, new hotness is less.

Someone should post some of the prices on the important/best gear that they see.

I am for sure going on Friday. PM me at petersustr at gmail.com if you are interested in anything special. I am limiting this to 5 reliable members and will scan a copy of the price sheet, not trying to make a dollar, just spread the joy to the members. You pay postage and everything through paypal.

Denver branch is here for BPL!

Decisions on 04/14/2009 13:11:43 MDT Print View

Oh, this sucks. I'm drawn in to the sale so bad that it's clouding my thought process. There are things that I want, but not that I necessarily need.

My wife's trying to tell me that I don't need any of it, and to save some money. But then I tell her that I am saving - 30 to 70% !!!

Joe:

There's nothing in the gear world that any of us really "need". It's all about "want". Saving means not buying at all, and putting the money in the bank instead.

So let's just acknowledge that we are NOT saving anything -- but are spending -- maybe just spending less. But even for "wanting" -- we still want gear that will truly be a good fit with our requirements and with the rest of our 'system'. Otherwise, buying something mainly because of its low price is actually wasting -- and a foolish way to spend our money. My two cents (or maybe just one and a half cent).

Ben, There is a word for it.

"Spaving" (spay'- ving), verb Spending unnecessarily, though actually saving some money because the goods were on sale.

GoLite Sale on 04/14/2009 14:06:04 MDT Print View

I am the King of Spavers. Although I've bought so much lately, I can't even thing of anything to buy. I bought a GoLite VO2 last month, maybe I should have waited. Also picked up an Ultra 20. I sure wasn't expecting anyone in that area to offer to help, that is pretty cool. Oh well.....maybe a down sweater.........

Re: GoLite Sale on 04/14/2009 14:10:12 MDT Print View

The recent posts about the Patagonia R1 sale have me thinking about a Melanzana hoody. So I have to get the allocation for that purchase. I really don't need that, and most of the things I want from GoLite are "spares" to have on hand JIC. Knowing that they're on sale makes them hard to pass up. The thing with having things as spares, and holding it for "someday" is that most times, "someday" never comes, and you're stuck with it.

Hey guys,

So far I have 3 request for gear and 2 more spots open. What i've done with the other guys is that I will email you when i have it in hand and note the price. Get back to me quick and if you want it, cool, if not, thats cool too, I just won't buy it.

As far as 'need' vs. 'want' its a fine line, I try to limit myself like a recovering alcoholic in a liquor store. Grab what I want, then par it down to what I need or would be a very nice upgrade (lighter, new model, etc)
