Christmas Gear Score!

         Life has been busy to say the least.  Christmas was no different.  Before the sun came up i found myself scanning in at work.  Working Christmas day is not my idea of fun but i was going home at 3 so i just had to tough it out for 8 hours.  My work day started out good.  I made my rounds to insure the process was in good order.  On my walk i noticed the smell of smoke in the air, but thought nothing of it.  When I got back to the office I went on the computer and found that a house fire down the road from work claimed the lives of five people.  The whole event is very tragic and as the story continues to unfold it gets sadder.  My best wishes go out to that family.  The rest of my day went by quickly, and soon 3pm came and i was scanning out! 
      I got home and was greeted by my wife.  I presented her with her gift of Sapphire earrings, and off to my mom's house we went.  We had a wonderful dinner with a Crown Roast, Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, and all the usual side dishes.  I really want to thank Savage Ed's wife for making the roast.   After we all ate we opened gifts.  My wife got me some really cool camping and hiking stuff.  Among the items were utensils from GSI, Techwick shirts from EMS, a Mess Kit, Starbucks Via, and a bunch of Backpacker Pantry meals for our hikes.  My mom got me a Streamlight flash light, and i have to tell you this light is Bright!  My brother, got me a Kodak PlaySport video camera to do Youtube.  Jan D. got me a few assorted saltwater plugs. 
    The Rest of the night was spent hanging out with Savage Ed and his family.  We had so much fun eating and laughing.  It was a real treat to spend the evening with good friends.  Stay tuned for the YouTube Channel.
