My first present to myself came in today.  Winter doesn't stand a chance.

Non-Christmas related, but kinda... The wife and I are going to put her parents on our family talk plan from AT&T and get new phones this Friday. Probably going Galaxy S3 for me and the wife and iPhone 4 for the 'rents. Only problem the wife and I face is that most of our music is itunes. So we'll have to convert everything to .mp3 for the S3 from what I've understood.

I would love an iPad, tools, and an AR but I know I will probably get none of the above. Accept for maybe some cheap tools. Because, I already got my iPhone 5 as a christmas gift and a 75-300 for my rebel to cover my b-day.

Why? 
You're Canadian . . . the government would just take all the money in
taxes and censor your iPad content to the point where it wasn't
enjoyable anyway.   LOL




While I'm definitely a Canuck, I've recently started terking yer jerbs in America, so I can enjoy better prices and streaming content. Freedom.

we sold our nikon d60 and ordered a Pentax k30 with 18-135mm lens for our Christmas.  We were going to buy a go pro for kayaking pics and vids, the  k30 is waterproof, takes videos and is dust and cold proof as well.  I also like the fact that the body of the K30 has the ant-vibration and autofocus motor rather than the lens's like most dslr's.

I went shopping today and found brand new ski boots. Last years for $140-$200. Not even demos. I paid $50 for skis. When I go buy the boots tomorrow I'll get out of this at $200-$250 for boots, skis, and bindings. WIN WIN WIN.

When I get back to Vail(had to come home for some emergency shenanigans) I will have to start taking some of those free lessons yeeeah

Wish granted.
Que pasa?

The only thing I can think of is a low-light lens, like the 50mm f/1.8, but I'd hate for anyone to spend the cash on it just for me. 


So what does she do to bug you?   Big smile

(If only you were a professional writer so you would have thought to phrase that in a way that I couldn't be a smart-butt about it.)

I want people to continue making comments on the forum that allow me to continue responding in a manner that allows me to show how amusing I think I am.

. . . . oh wait . . . wish granted.    Smile

As someone who has a nice set of pins in my back I can tell you from experience that this type of surgery isn't nearly as scary as it used to be.  If they had a praying smiley I'd put it here to show that I'm wishing her a quick recovery.

302's are great engines, I love my daily driver that has one. That being said, a Ford 300 i6 is probably one of the best half ton truck engines ever. Same torque or better than a stock 302, better mpg, and an awesome torque curve.

Good luck to you.

I'd like to amend my answer to go along these lines.

I'd like for my Town to accept my application as a police officer and allow me to work until the academy classes start up.
Or else I have to wait until next September, stuck with a 174 mile commute every day.

Demo equipment is fantastic stuff that can be had for cheap. That's how I always got next-year's skis and bindings this year and for around $300-$500 total

Try a nice thick pair of leather and wool welding gloves... Not the thin ones sears has but a nice pair from a welding supply shop ;) you will never go back...

Edit: my mom is having a plate put in her neck a few weeks before so I honestly just want her to recover.

A good meal with the family wouldn't hurt either. I may try my hand at prime rib this year.


I use Orcas. Silicone textured mitts. You can wash them in the dishwasher if you want, and since they're silicone, they're waterproof.

Boots are the most important thing. You need them to be snug and form fitting to your foot, but still comfortable. You don't want any "slop" in the side-to-side and twisting motion, but make sure you can still wiggle your toes. Wear whatever socks you'll use for skiing when trying them on.

Bindings are second most important. Spend decent money for decent bindings. The good thing here is that unlike boots, used bindings can be a good deal (used boots are usually trashed on the insides). Get the bindings that fit your style of skiing. Be honest with yourself. If you're a lazy schusser who likes making broad turns and just taking it easy, you don't need the latest LOOK race bindings. Bindings transfer the motions you make with your feet and legs to the planks of wood, metal, and plastic on the snow.

Skis are actually the least important part of the equation. Albeit, still important, the difference in modern skis is very slight from brand to brand. Again, get something that fits your style. You don't need super aggressive shape if you don't carve a lot. You also don't need super long skis if you don't plan on going fast all of the time.

Poles: Cheap poles are just as good as expensive carbon fiber or fiberglass ones. Plus, they're less expensive to replace when you break one on the lift or lose it. With you feet flat on the floor and gripping the poles around their handles, your forearms should be bent upward from the elbow at a 10*-15* angle.

I need this. I accidentally purchased a similar shock mount which didn't have the base plate.

I am notorious for the "I don't really want anything" phrase, so my parents will be pleased I am making it so easy for them this year.
