    Default Christmas toys?

    So, what did you get? I asked my son to make me a hex tarp. Instead he made me a new hammock and bought a Chill Gorilla tarp for me. My Grand Trunk Double is comfy as it is, but the extra width gets in the way sometimes. Plus he made me an 11' hammock, on the same dimensions as the WB Blackbird (aka "The Blackbird of Happiness"), which is something I had mentioned that I would like. So, I've been working every day ever since and haven't had a chance to string it up, but I'll post pics when I do. Sewing machines are marvelous things.

    Nothing major - went to China for 10 days in November instead.

    Did get a pair of led backup lights to replace the one I lost last summer when gps sent me down a trail. Switched out the contact paper on my dinette table (hate the ugly blond fake wood look). And picked up a heated seat cushion for winter camping.

    Got a Google Pixel 2XL smartphone to replace a challenged Droid. It has an outstanding camera.

    Nothing specifically camping-related, per-se, but I am the proud new owner of a heavy duty sewing machine (killed my old one trying to sew heavy duty stuff on a regular machine, oooops!) that I'm sure will be well used on making some camping gear, and a spiffy new pair of Merrell Jungle Mocs that will see some camping/hiking mileage, I'm sure! Also got the ok from Hubby to replace our old, broken cabin tent as a bonus Christmas present, so will be ordering that before too long.

    My Trailer got a new indoor outdoor wireless thermometer. Very exciting! I also got a new Olympus camera body. I can use the lenses I have and I also got a new camera bag. I want time to learn the new camera features. This July my siblings and all our kids are going to Ireland. Twelve adults in 3 cars driving on the wrong side of the road. Should be fun.

    How exciting!!! Stock up on memory cards. These new massive gb cards are convenient but if you lose one you lose everything... And yes, it is very possible to lose one (don't ask).

    I know what you mean. I usually carry several 32GB SD cards just for the reason you mentioned. I had a card crash a few years ago. I even sent it in to see if they could recover the pictures. No Luck. So now I use smaller cards and more of them.

    There are SD card duplicators out there. Even the small ones are a bit pricey yet, but for the serious photographer that could be an option. A cheaper alternative to that could be to transfer everything to a tablet with a USB adapter and a card reader. Just a thought...
