    I just purchased a zero gravity chair for my Darling Fiancee! I am hoping I get a fold up kitchen for cooking on!

    I bought [PU] a Sandisk Sansa Clip+ MP3 player and an X-Mini II capsule speaker.
    I'm also shopping around for a small travel alarm clock with a thermometer.

    I bought my DW a NTU camper, a couple of dutch oven books, hoping for a BAL leveler and a few other goodies.

    Our ntu pup is our Christmas present to each other along with a new porta potty and 2 zero gravity chairs. DH bought me the book Popping UP Across America to go on my Nook. I couldn't wait til Christmas to start reading it. We also ordered a Pop Up ornament. We are looking to buy shelves to go inside. As soon as the weather warms up a bit, after Christmas, we hope to be able to take "her" out again for the second time.

    DH & I agreed that our Christmas Present this year would be our (non-camping) trip this February to our "Happy Place" on Treasure Island, FL. Well, on Thanksgiving Day, K-Mart had a 10 x 10 screen tent for $29.99 (regularly $74.99). I told DH that that was the only thing that I wanted, and he said go for it. So at 8 a.m. Thanksgiving a.m. I was at K-Mart and got the only one on the shelf. One day I was at Walmart, and in their "as seen on TV shelf" they had the Old Brooklyn Lantern. I bought 2, with the idea of keeping one for us and giving the other to our camping friends as a hostess gift when we attend their Christmas Open House. The last time we camped, they were having trouble with their lantern, and borrowed one of ours. When I told DH that I had bought 2, he said we should have 2, (His & Her's), so we're getting 2 lanterns.

    Battery isolator since I carry 2 golf cart batteries in the TV. Extension cable for Peak wireless camera to bring the transmitter closer to TV. Better reception I hope.

    That's an excellent deal on a screen tent! My FIL gave us one of those lanterns prior to our first trip out, this fall. I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. We got plenty of use out of it, and it puts out a nice bright adjustable-level light. The battery life is very good, too.

    She's getting a Coleman Hot Water On Demand with shower and hose attachments. After one of our Apache friends pulled one out of their camper, CJ decided that was what she wanted. Okay, dear!

    We have stayed at a few state camp grounds that had wi-fi last year. Sadly, we struggled with reception from the laptop alone. Well, what we need is a good external antenna and repeater. So I'll run this antenna up with my mast for the T.V. and pull in that sucka well. I dropped the link to this on the DW a while back, hope she got the hint!

    I got each of my nephews, age 10 and 11, their own pie iron and a ladder ball game to share. I also got my DH a new sleeping bag for when he has to sleep in the tent with the scouts.

    Everyone got Kamik Pearsons cold weather boots. They (Pearsons only) are made in Canada, and much better quality than Sorels, which are now all made in China....
