Deviant I take back what I said about gear. Family member got me the Homeschool Airbreather base layer. First base layer I've had that isn't a compression fit so I'm kinda weirded out by the fit, but the cocona material is amazing

NWBoarder Merry Christmas and Happy Holidys everyone! I recieved 2 new long sleeve shirts, and a fifth of Cuervo Especial Silver. Gonna ring in the new year right, by forgetting it at the bottom of a bottle!

Anyway, I'm an atheist too but I don't get all twisted about "Christmas". Sure it's based on a religious festival, but the holiday has a huge secular component nowadays. I even sing carols like "Silent Night" because I like them. And because my singing can drive a bagpiper to suicide
I was just being a pain in the ass, it's the little things in life that make me happy.

Noreaster VT is under winter storm warning. As a Christmas present to myself I'm dropping everything and hitting the road.

Exactly! Although still waiting for this great winter the northeast was supposed to have. Saw a bit of snow last night though. Maybe I should just sacrifice someone, today would be a great day me thinks.
