    What do ya'll think about a gift exchange for Christmas? We can see who is interested and I will come up with who is giving to who. We can maybe put a price limit on it so we can keep them close to equal value. Used items are fine, I know I don't care if my gear, knives, etc are used as long as they aren't abused. Nothing expensive and you can't go out and buy something for it. It has to be something you currently own or make yourself. What ya think? Im thinking we should keep it gear, knife, gun, outdoors related but we can do other things as well if you want. If anyone wants to do it just post it and lets try to set a date of December 1st for name swapping so there will be enough time to ship out with the Holidays. I already know what I will be giving!

    Ok, specifics. Its kind of hard to set price points on used items but lets figure something around 50.00. Does that sound good? Gear items only like packs, knives, flashlights, etc. I know the thing Ill be giving is worth a little more than that but who cares. If you have something up to 100.00 and want to gift it than by all means do so. Once we get closer I will ask for everyones address and than will let you know where to send your item. Ill assign everyone a number and let my kids draw. Hopefully we can get about 20 people in on it and if it comes out an odd number than Ill throw in an extra item.

    Chris, great idea. Why not take everyone's "I'm in" post and use that number ??? Already selected & I bet the rug rats would love to be included with "dad's secret project" . . . :)
    No computer generated random number selector this time, old school tupperware bowl, numbers on paper, & one little itty bitty hand drawing them out with some pics posted to boot . . . . And I have first dibs on post #3, owe that guy a "favor" for calling my wife a "Gorilla" last year, long story . . . . . :D :D :D
    Be safe.

    Mykel - coal would be an awesome gift, but pricey to ship... :(
    back when I had a forge my mom threatened me with coal for the holidaze one year -- and got MAD at me when I thought that was a wonderful idea. :)

    Bill -- if by some chance you end up with my "number" I'll gladly take whatever you dish out. :D

    I've got a few items in mind I could gift that fit those categories.
    Would offering our giftee a choice be out of line?
    Spoils the surprise,but the anticipation would still be there.
    I just hate the idea if someone not liking my gift ya know.:eek:
    What do y'all think?

    Less than a month left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I already have gotten some emails with what some are giving away. There are some really great things that are worth way more than 50.00. Anyone else want in?

    I'm in. I think I have a pretty good idea of what I will be gifting. I havent been hanging around here very long, but it seems like a pretty good group that hangs out here, so I think it would be great to join in on this
