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 #1814268Matthew ZionMember

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 #1814359David UreMember
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 #1814377
For me it is a pair of Feathered Friends Down Booties.Dec 20, 2011 at 10:12 pm #1814517Eric LundquistBPL Member

I'm thinking of hanging a stuff sack instead of the traditional stocking in hopes of some gear!Dec 20, 2011 at 10:38 pm #1814525Travis LeannaBPL Member

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?
