I had an AWESOME christmas, quick background, I'm halfway through my 19th year of bein alive, i was born in Florida, lived there for 6 mos. moved to Idaho and lived there for 18.5 years, and then had to move here to Tennesee. So allot of my friends are in Idaho, and my mother finally convinced my dad during Thanksgiving back there to have one last White Idaho Christmas, so that was awesome!
I Got 5/10 Coyote Climbing shoes, a Black Diamond Harness and carabiner, and Metolius Climbing Grips. (All very good quality stuff).
For the Metolius Grips, ya hang them from a wall/celing/some other firm surface, they have 4 types of holds: Jugs, 4-finger, 3-finger, and 2-finger holds; and are used to train your arm/back/ab/etc strength, train your grip strength, help your flexibility (in terms of types of holds and positions, not exactly bodily flexibility) and all around help to make you a better climber.
I also got Solitary and Death Sentence (books 2&3 of the Escape from Furnace book series) books by Alexander Gordon Smith
And the 2 best presents I received this Christmas (and EVER) were:
#1: My brother's Flight Helmet (one like this)
#2: and a Janus: Armor CD (the one you see in the pic is the one i got)
The Armor CD is the second album by Janus, and I have only ever seen 4 available, and I got one!!!!! (VERY rare, but even better? they made 2 covers, ^this^ ^one^ with the beetle, and one with the Chicago cityscape
, and I got the one with the even rarer cover(the beetle)!!!!!!)
And I got to hang out with all my family including my brother, (he's in the Air Force, doesn't get much time off, and he's one of my heroes, and an awesome human being
) and got to hang out with some of my friends, play billiards, go driving and having fun with them for one last time
EDIT, something that i got KIND OF for Christmas, a new Giant Anthem X2 29er 2013
(more really for finally getting a job like i've been trying for, but we (the fam and I) kind of call it a Christmas Present because of when I finally got it) Gonna pick it up and get fitted to it/it fitted to me at the shop this weekend
