Thank You, Santa!

Was Santa good to you this year? He was very good to me, that's for sure. The only thing I specifically asked for was the Garmin Topo U.S. 24K West - California and Nevada - Micro SD Card
for my GPS receiver; and Santa delivered. But Santa was also kind enough to get me some other geocaching-related items that I didn't even tell him I wanted.

For instance, I also scored a fabulous LED headlamp. I've never been a big fan of night-caching, but I tried it last night with my new headlamp, and man did that thing light up the trail. This should also come in handy for those early morning bike rides this time of year.

Santa even found time to have his elves manufacture a GPS screen protector kit for me. Man, I must have been a good boy this year.

And on top of that, all my friends and relatives seemed to get me REI gift cards this year. I guess the word is out - I'm a geocachaholic.

So, were you all good boys and girls this year too? What cool geocaching gear did you find under your tree? Please share your favorites in the comment section below.

Thanks, and happy caching!

He was good. In addition to a box full of cache making materials and swag, I got an LED headlamp. It is great!

The only caching-related stuff is that I received a gift card to purchase a pair of Carhartts. What I received that made the difference, however, was time. My first day was yesterday. I have a few more on the horizon. I love my wife!

Awesome score from the Jolly ol' Elf! I didn't get much by way of caching stuff -- a few TBs to be able to send out and a geocoin I wanted. Also 30 bucks to spend at Groundspeak.

I need to get me one of those headlamps though!

A 'lil HooHaa.

I got my DH a binder with baseball-card-holder-type plastic pages to keep all his unactivated geocoins in. I also got him a cool TB that looks like one of those "Hello My Name Is" nametags and it's got a spot on the front to write his name and magnets on the back so you can wear it to events or wherever and have people discover YOU.
