Got about $240, primarily from using REI Visa for business travel. Picked up a ThermaRest EvoLite (L) sleeping pad. Decided I was old enough that a pad thicker than 1inch was a necessity, not a luxury.
Even remembered to click the REI link on HST to make my purchase.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

La Sportiva Wildcats size 13.5 and Luci Lux lantern. Total final bill was $27.00 after applying a refund for the failed Brooks Cascades, a $17.00 dividend, and the 20% discount. Next on the list, either an Exos 38 or the Kelty Trekker external frame.

I just saved about $300 by NOT using my REI coupons. I picked out what I though I needed, then let it go a few days, and decided that way over-priced stuff, even if 50% off (outlet), buying "nice to have" vs "really need" and what I really wanted, was no deal. The only thing I really needed were more butane canisters and the car gas used to go to REI to get the 20% off was more than the 20% off. Sigh. Unfortunately, much of the stuff in the outlet did not interest me in the least. I am now waiting to see what will show up on the big annual sale.

Decided to save the money on a GPS unit and use maps instead, and bit the bullet on the new mtnglo Big Agnes Copper Spur UL3 tents. Weighs a good 4lbs less than my old tent packaged vs. packaged so that's nice. Even lighter if I go quick pitch.

Don't think the woman will be letting me buy anything else anytime soon, but I did save nearly $200 on it with the 20% and dividend. Felt that was worth it.

Why is it that women will eventually say "fine!" when they really mean "eat dirt and die?" ;)
