That is a beeyootifull quilt, Johntp!
Neebee your kitty is adorable :) thanks for the welcome home. It is nice to be back, so I can go skiing and enjoy the snow that fell while I was away.
I am still fondling my gift. Thin is in, thin is in.....

No worries, Bluering.
Shite happens.
Going to Rubidoo today. A bit cold, but I need to climb on the last day of the year. I don't have a New Years resolution, but I do have a New Years wish: I don't want to bury any friends this coming year. I buried enough this year.
Cheers to all and Happy New Year!

Charles AKA Social Climber,
I received a cotton tee with a climbing gym logo and a locking biner. If that was you, I got it thanks. Have a great new year,

Been too busy to snap an "opened" pic, but I ended up with quite a nice (and useful) haul:

Petzl headlamp (!!)
Magnetic climbing people
Cashmere (!!) gloves
Space blanket
A big double-ended 'biner for hanging bikes in the garage
A keychain
And even a nice card.

My wife was impressed. (She took the headlamp claiming I already had one.)

Thanks SS!

Man, I wish Christmas came every month...

Don't know who my secret santa was, but "Enduring Patagonia" was a beautiful read. Thanks for a great gift.

This swap thing is awesome.

IHATEPLASTIC,

sounds like you scored pretty good.

too bad your SS didn't include a Santa hat, and freeze dried dessert.

that would have made it real special.

Nice catch Zip! Yes, there was a SANTA HAT and some FREEZE DRIED DESSERT. Whoopsee on me for forgetting that!

There was just too many cool things in there and you know me, I don't like brag...

Thanks so VERY MUCH!!!!!!

Wow, so many great gifts were exchanged this year!

A HUGE thanks to everyone who participated this year. It seems we pulled it off again this year. Thanks again to everyone for being such a great community that we can trust each other with a game of this sort (where money and private/personal information is at stake). Well Done.

If ANYONE has NOT received their gift (and has not heard from their Santa as to why) PLEASE let me know. In a few weeks (to allow enough time to make sure everything has come out right) I am going to be deleting my spreadsheets with everyone's name, address and Santa matches. So if you don't speak up now...then I won't be able to do anything for you...

And I personally need to give a few thanks out...

Zander - Thank you so much for the 'Taco tshirt. When you mentioned a Supertopo t-shirt to send to me I thought it might be the weird-multi-colored-climber shirt (which I think is HORRID) but instead it was the AWESOME taco-stuffed-with-climbing-gear shirt. Perfect!

neebee - Thank you for the lovely Christmas card. My family was curious and then surprised when I told them where it came from (more or less a complete stranger). It touched us all on Christmas day and I thank you.

Pocoloco - Thank you for the super tasty salsa! All three jars are already gone (and have been for a few weeks!)! Everyone (friends and family) thought it tasted great. When are you going to start distributing?!? =)

Good luck to everyone in the New Year and Santa will see you again next November for sign-ups!!!

BTW: I am no longer checking the supertoposanta@ email address so if you wish to contact me privately, please send me a message through Supertopo and I will be happy to respond through my normal email address.

and a book on relationships, that will definitely get read, but not sure it will help.

It is very obvious that my SS put a lot of time, energy, care, and thought in to these wonderful gifts.
I am touched.
Thank you Phyllis.

Thanks Jaybro! My gift subscription finally arrived! I've never read it before but there's a story about skiing naked in this one so I'm pretty sure I'll be entertained. :-)

hey there strider... say, i think part of the joy, was for us all to come up with neat things to do, make, or hunt for to buy, that would be treasures, to someone... etc, for all year round...

thank you for doing this...

i am still enjoying my treasured gift...
:)



say, lolli, did you ever learn if your gift arrived safe?

hope so... :)

say, how is winter, out your way?
god bless...

Here is the home made bag that my marbles came in. My santa knew that since I've lost my previous marbles I needed something to keep my new ones in so I do knott lose them again. Thanks again SS and hope you are well!

Hoping this will help me keep my new marbles...
