REI rocks.

I could have gone a lifetime without ever seeing that wedding picture.

Gotcha. Yeah, but don't you have to pay a fee to become a member of REI? I thought you at least used to.

I also went to a local store and spent an entirely ridiculous amount for really just little things (water bottle with steel cup, smartwool socks, maps, a few other little things) Holy crap I can spend a LOT of money in that place!

Friend just picked up some fancy emergency stove with USB charger from REI. It uses the heat waves to not just cook, but drive a fan to increase ventilation and combustion, and the fan also powers the USB which can be used to charge your phone. Pretty sweet.

No fee when I signed up a very long time ago.

I know what you're talking about. From what I've heard about it, though, it's not very efficient.

I must be getting it mixed up with somewhere else, then.

ETA: I just checked. Membership is $20.

Oops, guess things change. Still $20 isn't bad.

No, but I'll just get most everything from Moosejaw because I don't have to pay a membership fee. That is a lifetime membership, though, so maybe sometime.

Yeah, the REI membership is a one time lifetime fee of $20. I think there is a restriction that you have to buy something every year though. I'd have to check. But since I buy stuff, I'm all good to go.

Yeah, I've purchased from there before (a backpacking mess kit that I cannot locate right now; I think it may be at my parents' house mixed in with their camping stuff), but a membership where I HAVE to purchase something every year could be dangerous, lol.

REI membership payment is once in a lifetime. It cost me $10 years ago and I made back that money several times over in the first year. The dividend needs to be redeemed within the following year, but I always find something I need or can use.

They aren't as hardcore as they used to be - ice axes and figure-eights have been relegated to a small display and trendy fashion has taken their place, but at least they haven't become Abercrombie & Fitch.

But if you check out their online store, they have a ton more stuff. I asked them about it because the boots I wanted to try weren't on the shelf. They pretty much just said that it's based on sales. They usually sell up to a certain dollar line and have a hard time selling the more expensive boots in that store so they don't stock them and just sell them online. Same thing with the various backpacks, etc.

I think that's most any outdoor store anymore. I've come to like a local store now, too. It's a chain, but it's a small, local chain (three stores).

Face it, you weren't cut out for hair gel, elastic banded sleeves on short sleeved shirts, and 5.11 clothing.

Be happy that you aren't on call 24/7!

Can't use hair gel at all. It runs into my eyes. The foam stuff is much better.

As for being on call, too late.

I just learned the other day that I can order any Glock direct through my department with our patch and department name engraved on the slide. (just like our issued pistols) Me thinks there might be a G30s in my future!
