    I got a few gadget type toys but also got a couple of Ray Mears books, a days hind stalking and a messenger style bag for walking.

    Good result all round.

    Default Santa brought me

    A handmade canoe sail and a Ghillie Kettle.
    Now where can I find some suitable poles? I'm looking forward to doing some sailing and a nice hot brew.

    Default I got a Pole but I'm not a Polecat

    Yeah, Santa rocks!
    I am now the proud owner of an Aluminium Canoe Pole

    It's very Cool, and Red! (which of course means it's fast!)

    I will be joining some of the SOTP members on Sunday for a pole up the canal at Bishopbriggs!

    Can't wait!

    Merry Christmas!

    I had a nice and unexpected surprise, a camcorder !!

    For those who want to know, itís a Sony DCR-SR35E. I have no idea what it is but the stuff I recorded this Christmas looked pretty good to me .

    Iíve actually bought myself a little pressie too , a Garmin GPSMap60Cx. (to finally replace my deceased GPS).

    Got some heated handlebar grips for the motorbike and some Sealskin socks, obviously sending me a message to get out of the house a bit more, so why oh why did she get me an Xbox360 and Burnout Paradise as well? For the remainder of the holiday period I was vaguely aware of other people moving about as I huddled in front of the television

    Also got one of those Oregon Scientific action cams, not fantastic quality but convenient for bite size fottage to upload, and waterproof..ish.

    All the best

    I had an i-pod nano also as our lap top has thrown a wobbly a new one was bought.
    With said new lap top I bought myself a pie iron........ great toy oh and a zebra billie pot and one of those nigh on indestructible Samsung mobile phone thingies and a Vivitar water proof camera, then I ran out of money.
