I Miss My GPS

I used to have a Magellan GPS that I used for Geocaching. The wife and I absolutely loved going Geocaching. We used to make a weekend out of it. Then came the time when we lost our handheld GPS.

Were not sure if we left it at a Geocache, or if someone swiped it out of the car. My name, address, and phone number was on the startup screen, but if it was stolen, I guess that doesn’t do much good. A thief is a thief. That has put an end to our Geocaching. We haven’t splurged and bought a new GPS yet.

I have been slowly and methodically putting together my Christmas list that I will have to turn in to my wife soon. I found a few nice GPS that I am fond of. I am still debating on whether or not I want another Magellan, or if I would like to try out one of the Garmin units. Both manufacturers seem to have their own die-hard fanboys, a lot like the video game industry does.

I would also like to have a navigation unit for the car, but maybe I shouldn’t press my luck too much…. 🙂

Hunting Season In West Virginia

I am a hunter. That’s right. I walk around in the woods with my big bad bazooka and shoot little Bambi. Over and over again. There is just something about that great tasting Bambi meat that gets me all excited. For those of you that have never tried venison (deer) meat, you really have no idea what you are missing. Especially if it is prepared right. The taste is very unique, and very….well…. tasty!

The wife and I were having a discussion about Christmas yesterday, and she wanted me to tell her what I wanted. I need some new Hunting Boots (hiking boots would also work), but there is a problem with that. When Christmas rolls around, hunting season is over, and I need the boots for this year. Our Anniversary is on the 15th of December, so that doesn’t work either. Maybe I can talk her into getting me an early gift. That way my feet don’t freeze while I am out getting her some fresh meat. 🙂

Rootin Tootin Gun Shootin

If you have ever lived here in West Virginia, pr maybe even if you have came to visit, you have probably realized that we love our guns. Pistols, shotguns, rifles, BB Guns, dart guns, blow guns, if it has “gun” in the name, we are quite fond of it.

I own a few guns, and consider myself a semi-avid hunter. I have been very successful in my hunting adventures and plan to keep it that way. I have NOT ever kept a loaded gun under my bed. Except for that one time… but we won’t talk about that right now.

This “commercial” has me intrigued. Have a look:

Now I know that some people are overly paranoid, and this would be a good Christmas gift for them. I also know from taking concealed weapons permit classes that it is perfectly legal to shoot someone that makes their way into your home under the cover of darkness. But please, don’t take my word for it and murder someone.

Is there really a need for this device? Is a shotgun under your bed not enough? What happens if your a lucid dreamer like I am, and I roll out of bed onto the gun in the holder? The round may go off, hit me right in the chest, and I will lay there and bleed to death, murdered suicided accidentally shot by myself the gun in the holder.

If anyone reading this is planning on buying me one of these for Christmas, please don’t. If needed, I will just put the shotgun back under the bed. 🙂
