Some of us don't/can't camp all season. Shut up Ranger, yes I'm jealous of the winter camping.
Anyway. What does everyone do to kill time? from late August till early January, my time killer is Christmas lights. This year, I will probably top 30,000 lights. I will start putting them up this weekend, and hopefully finish the day after T-day. Yea, I'm nutz, but how I got my start with the extreme lighting craze is from my dad. Lots of memories helping him hoist Santa and Company to the 3-story roof. I know he would love my display, yet criticize it as much as possible. And I'd appreciate every word.

This Sunday, it will be 6 years since my dad's passing. Yet, I know he is still here. Whatever it is, his stubbornness, or his quiet criticism, I know he is here. And every year, the Christmas decorations are up in his memory/legacy. Some of what goes up, are the exact items he displayed so many years ago. Now, they are displayed in his memory. Cherish the moments and make every second memorable. Love ya dad.

Sorry for the ramble.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE, AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

I am putting our lights up this weekend also. I wont be going as big as I have in the past the biggest I ever did was close to 35,000 lights. But I burnt up my light controller last year so no synchronized light show this year. Just the normal twinkling and flashing


Its all fun and games then crasher gets a site beside you

1 of these years, I will save up money and do a syncronized show. Sort of a dream of mine.

thanx sorefoot, yeah I actually left a 5 pointer walk before I shot that one so hopefully it's around for my son in rifle season,my boy had several opportunities in archery to take buck but for some reason he wouldn't shoot,I think he was afraid of missing but he has one under his belt with the rifle so hopefully he gets a chance then.

I considered a european mount campin but decided to go with the head mount instead, it should look good on the wall next to my other big one I took with the rifle.
