    Default RE: What are you hoping for?

    It's a slow day at work so I've been doing a lot of thinking.

    This year my wife said she didn't want to go crazy in terms of Christmas shopping which is alright by me since (as she mentioned) we've had several good Christmases in the past few years and more importantly we've spent quite a bit of money on remodeling the house in the past few months.

    In any case, this got me to wondering if folks are planning on spending more, less or the same this Christmas (note I did not use the word "holidays" so I apologize in advance to any of our Jewish, Muslim, African-American, Wiccan or other -ish, -ims or -ans that celebrate another holiday besides Christmas).

    In the same vein of thought, is there anything in particular folks are really hoping that they find under the tree in a little less than 25 days -- geocaching stuff or even non-geocaching stuff?

    Boy, I can think of a few things that I would like to see under the tree but I think that the little woman would frown on it.

    I have hinted about for a Garmin 60CXs (or CSx, can't even keep it straight, how am I going to learn to use it if I get it!)

    I've sort of run out of GPS related stuff to buy,so this year it's going to be gear to get to the cache items. A pair of MSR Lightning Ascent Snowshoes and an Osprey Atmos 35 Pack are the main items. BTW I retired six weeks ago and moved to the NY/VT border where my new home is surrounded by mountains and great trails.

    I am hoping for a Garmin 60CXs also but I know something came from gpsonsale.com by UPS yesterday. So, can I wait until Christmas. The kids think I don't know what was in the box.
