    100' 20 amp extension cord for the generator, Lumbermart on Wright has 50% electrical accessories, unfortunately it is due to their receivership sale.

    Got myself a birthday present for my 35th the other day.
    Nice little gun for strapping to the backpack when I'm out quading. Savage 17HMR with a shortened, heavy barrel.

    Is it just me, or does that scope make it look like an assault weapon?



    I kid, I kid! :P

    Tacx Flow smart trainer. trying out the Zwift life for the first week and i don't think its for me. too much money really with the hardware and monthly subscription cost, so i ordered a Cyclops Fluid 2, so i can just watch you tube videos and the like, rather than be in a video game

    The most success I've had with a trainer was getting together with friends and doing it in someone's basement or wherever makes sense. We'd put on a SufferFest video or something and just go.

    Ring for my wife. We got married young and I've never really spent any money on jewelry for her. She's been hinting pretty hard for a few years that she'd like something so while we were in Dawson City this summer, I commissioned something for her to be custom made - just saw the pictures and paid the balance to get it here before Christmas.

    Should be fun - we only do stockings at Christmas and I'll put it in there along with everything else.

    Yea no one actually eats those things but whacking it is a highlight of xmas.

    Or just eat one of the good Carmels in the box of Pot of Gold and leave the ring in its spot.

    *yes, I am aware "whacking it is a highlight" is not just reserved for xmas.

    They've been on fire since I arrived in Seattle which definitely helps. Going to the final vs. Toronto sealed the deal on pulling the trigger. It's also relatively cheap - I'm sure when I see the price for the NHL team when they arrive, I'll balk at the price and pull out (I have 2 seats reserved for purchase).

    Depending on your seat level I would guess between $4-6k a ticket.

    Unless you are an extreme baller and got the Loge Seats, those are like $15k a year, and you need to buy 4 and commit to 5 years.

    We'll likely end up splitting with friends on some tickets to make it work for the NHL. It's not like we would be able to attend all 41 home games. On the flip side, re-sale value, especially in the first season is bound to be near 100% so if I can get the season ticket discount and only make it to 1/2 the games, I would not be out anything. Seattle is home to so many people with disposable income looking for events to spend it on, it's crazy.

    Yea and being that Vancouver was an option for a lot of ExPats, I think the arena should be pretty charged up with hockey fans, who are new Seattle fans.

    I have only been to Seattle once, but it was a good time.
