Why is it that I have so much gear (camping, edc, BOB, car kit etc. probably well over $1200) but I still need (want) more. I keep seeing things that I have to have. I am woefully unprepared. I think I have a problem. I'm addicted, a common gear junky. I need help. Please help? A Doug Ritter RSK MK1 might help…darn it there I go again. eek

Is there a Doctor in the house? crazy

Yeah, but I made $3.99 per minute while we talked. Man, that thing you wanted with the two chickens and pickle? That was seriously weird. Luckily I was prepared for such a request.

You promised you wouldn't tell!

$3.99 a minute?? That’s almost enough for the MK1. Enjoy it my friend.

Embarrassedly Yours,

Blitz

It's like you're reading my mind.

I'm pretty sure it was you that said:

OK, I'm actually recalculating the total and it is much higher than I initially stated. BTW, this doesn't include firearms and ammo, new FJ (BOV), as well as Blast's new phoneline. Man, I'm in up the creek, damn, I didn't buy a paddle... need to get a paddle... tired

In need of some serious help,

and an MK1,

Blitz
