    Glacier National Park is one of the most breathtaking places I've ever been. The mountains still blow me away every time. Where were you? We're staying in East Glacier and will be spending most of our time in the park, but plan on hitting Kalispell and Whitefish too.

    I have a RAT II that I really enjoy, what's the size difference between the model I and II?

    Blade length is a bit longer and a bit more robust.
    The handle is also a bit wider.
    They are mirror images of each other aside from size.

    ouirdouird summed it up pretty well... the only other difference I can think of is $5, the price difference between them.

    Got one of these today at Home Depot. Interesting side note: since the box was too big for me to fit in my car I paid for delivery ($50), and the guy there said they'll put it together for free (normally $40). He gave me the order sheet to take to the cash to pay with the additional $90 in charges, but when they scanned the cupon it gave an $80 credit. So for $10 bucks you get delivery and assembly; not too shabby.

    We set out to go there a couple of years ago and ended up spending the most of our trip in the hospital as my wife's grandmother took ill (and soon after passed away). This time we were hell-bent we are making it there and opted to take a few extra days to visit family in Edinburgh etc. I know October isn't the most ideal time to visit but the majority of our trip was booked on points (did you know some hotels offer dinner as well as breakfast ?! I had no idea) and also #farmlife gets in the way for timing. Should be a good time regardless I hope.

    2 x FitBits for the kids. They’ve both elected to take French in the Fall which doesn’t leave room for Phys Ed. Looking to find ways to motivate them to stay active. Could potentially add a trigger that doesn’t allow the WiFi to turn on until they’ve hit 10,000 steps.

    Normally I would agree, but thankfully they delivered it assembled so the appearance of my manliness is still intact. Plus for me since I have an absolute lack of free/personal time so I'd gladly pay the $10 to be able to do something else I wanted.

    You wouldn't believe how much that extra 1% would have set me back.

    Euro OEM Honda mats for the S2K. They are much nicer than the North American mats as they cover the crossmember

    Picked up a new desk to go with my larger than life screen. I went for the manual adjust standing desk from IKEA. I was looking at the electric operated one, but it was twice the price.

    So many. Mostly in prison.

    The wife and I buy and sell antiques, and I've been selling some of the paper/ephemera stuff that we end up with online. Relatively small, low-dollar stuff, so a stamp and an envelope is the cheapest in most cases.
