Since all of the gifts have been open there has to be some new gear out there. So what did you get?

My new gear is a pair of gaitors. A must-have for this winter. The other standout gift is a date with my hubby to Monday night's Tran Siberian Orchestra concert. Can't wait!

A pair of kayaks and two paddles to match. I guess they were actually a combined Christmas-birthday-fathers day-valentines-veterans day present.

WORTH EVERY PENNY. Except now with all the snow, they need to invent Super Gaiters, like chaps, to account for all of the snow being up to my waist.

I got a week with my kids before I go back to Iraq. Best holiday gift ever.

I got my Fenix LD 20. Well, I was actually given the money to order it and told that they wouldn't have been able to get it here before Christmas, so they thought that I should order it.

Should be here by January 6th!

My wife gave me the Legend of Viking Twareg geocoin comeplete with stand and decoder. She must've bought this at the Twin Cities GEOCOINFEST. This type of geocoin is new to me and all that. I have to do some reading up on it. Anyone want to join me on this feel free to let me know. Sounds like a new kind of geocaching adventure.
