Got it taped or Tivo'd or something. We always have to travel right when it comes on. Hopefully we can watch it in a couple of days when we get home.

You could always make an Igloo hotel!

Hope everyone has had a great holiday so far!

Well, we had a good Christmas. First one since I can remember that we didn't have a big family gathering. Due to conflicting schedules with several family members, we pushed our gathering off until next weekend. So we had all day on Saturday to open gifts, fight with the packaging and play with our new toys. DD and I never took off our pajamas.
And I've got the rarest of Christmas presents coming up - a one day work week.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas. I am one of the suckers who ran out of vacation so have to work this week. Ughhh.

On a positive note, central PA was spared from the snowfall in the Northeast.

I know it's a little late but we just got back from doing the family Christmas circuit.

Merry Christmas to all!

I hope you had a very merry holiday.

Hey guys!

I didn't get a chance to post anything on Christmas day but I did want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday, or for all the Phillies Phans Merry Cliffmas and Happy Halladay's!

I have a question that I am hoping that someone can help me out with. I have wanted a handheld GPS for a while now for Geocaching, hiking, fishing etc. My parents bought me one for christmas and I am not sure it is the right one. I did not do a lot of research prior to christmas and just mentioned it in passing one day to my parents. They bought me a Garmin Dakota 20. I have now done a lot of research over the last two days and still can't figure out if I should keep it or take it back for another. It seems like a good unit but I was wondering if maybe one of you guys had any experience with this unit? Anyone?

I absolutely love that watch. That is worth more than having a Rolex on your wrist. Very, very cool.

I've got an old Garmin (GPSMAP 60CS) and really like it. The Dakota looks like a nice unit and perfect for what you are using it for. If you want to upgrade, they have one called the Oregon that looks awesome. If it's of any help, the Garmin website has a tool that can help you pick the product that would best suit your needs.

Nice gift!
I Googled it and it looks like a very nice unit. We use a Magellan Explorist 210 for Geocaching and that works well for us. We've been caching for about 6 or 7 years, I guess. Have fun! If you are ever in the Easton area, look up Team SAR-Dogs' caches.

prattpack, that is an awesome gift!

I am trying to decide if I spend some of my Christmas cash on Rock Band 3 or Red Dead Redemption for my PS3. Any input?
