5 more days of waiting…Maybe I can sneak a look when she is at work? Na…
But, it has MY name on it…I can open it.!? Na…
But, gee, it is mine…Maybe she won't notice if I carfully repack it? Na…
But the tape is not that stuck…Maybe, I put it back after peeking? Na…
I am not THAT interested! …Maybe if I carefully slit the packing with a razor blade? Na…
I don't want to get caught, I'll get grounded! I HATE my wife!!!

@hereLocale: Right there
I was bad and could not wait. Took the new Hilleberg out over the weekend. Now I won't have anything to unwrap at Christmas.
There is still the food…Dec 20, 2011 at 6:12 am #1814201

…and hang in there. Remember, Santa is watching to see if you've been good!
It could be worse. My new shelter hasn't even been purchased yet! :-(
Our two sons split the cost of Dad's new Houdini which which technically isn't under the tree either. It will however arrive in time for Christmas with them. ;-)
FWIW anyone who is size 2XL can have one for $36.99 on 6:pm.com.

My new gear is being kept hostage until Christmas as well but I need to use it NOW! Some of it has been used before I had to "surrender" it though.Dec 20, 2011 at 9:19 am #1814268

I just pretend that finding the gear I like is complicated so no one even attempts and I can pick up as necessary.Dec 20, 2011 at 1:20 pm #1814359
My Tarptent Notch was just received at the office. It will stay in the box until Christmas Morning. In the meantime, I'll be in the bar.Dec 20, 2011 at 2:28 pm #1814377Dec 20, 2011 at 10:12 pm #1814517

Ha, ha… Travis, take the coal. Grind it up and use it as FUEL! Lots, better than wood. But, my question is, what "naughty" did you do to get a lump of coal?
