A Study: Wishlist 2013

wishlist2013Here are a few things I wouldn’t mind finding under the tree on Christmas morning.

1. Best Made Light Waxed Cruiser – My wonderful wife surprised me with this early. It will arrive soon and I can’t wait.

2. Moleskine 2014 Weekly Calendar – My soon to be back pocket companion.

3. Montbell Compact Travel Shoes – I need some new house shoes, and these can pull camp shoe duty also.

4. Pointer Brand Woodland Tote – Made in East Tennesse and Woodland Camo. That’s enough for me.

5. Topo Designs Accessory Bags – For keeping my bag a little more organized.

6. Snow Peak Kettle No. 1 – I plan on camping every month next year, and this will make the cooking a bit nicer.

7. Kaufman Mercantile Wood Handled Screwdrivers – My Dad has these, and they really class up a weekend project.
