Christmas Survey

Recommended Posts

Just out of curiousity....How many of you will open presents Christmas morning, and then race to the ice to escape the "family scene"..? Not that it's a bad thing, but I'd rather be on the ice... wink.gif

I have done that the past few years, but my little guy is 18 months old and this is the first real family Christmas for us, so it will be a whole family day for me. Thinking the 26th will be a full day and night staring at the vex though! Hmmmm.... maybe I should get a second battery from Santa!

Yup, we will go out tommorow morning , come in to open gifts at the parents in the evening. Go out xmas morning, come back to open gifts in the evening and than make a weekend of it Friday, Saturday, Sunday . I just love it that my wife likes to fish as much as I do or there would be problems.

Well, I has to be in town, to work and to be available in case something goes wrong. So...

since SWMBO wants to go to her folks, it does kind of leave me here w/ time on my hands - er - time on the ice. smile.gif

Going to do the present thing tomorrow night, then SWMBO and the kids head N on Christmas morning. I'm on the ice all afternoon/evening for as long as I want, work a half day Fri, then out on the ice. Do some chores Sat morning, then out on the ice, much the same on Sunday. I'd say by the time SWMBO comes home on Sunday, I should be "fished out".

Hope you guys do well.

I am going to have to wait till after dinner.Every one will get a little sleepy after stuffing their faces and when they nod off, I am off! smile.gif
Now that plan will work if I can only refrain from eating 2 or 3 helping of everything and I don't nod off first! smile.gif

My family has a long-standing Christmas tradition. Ever since I can remember we would wake up early, open presents, eat breakfast, and we'd all be out on the ice by about 9 am or so. Catch a few fish, come back and fry them up for a late lunch. This year was no different, and the girlfriend even joined us!!

    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
    • Not unlike most years.....
    • wow.....thats cool......................hmmm idea for da next bear, whenever i get drawn and get one !!!!!!!!!
    • Well no reason to come back out of the woods or off the lake ice fishing this year at noon on Sundays!  😕
    • I don't get the concept that we won't get anything in return for him.  If you are using that theory look at Kawai Leonard...San Antonio seemed to get something for a guy that everyone knew was not gonna work with San Antonio and everyone said they would only get something from the Lakers but Toronto stepped up made a play and the word is that they may be the front runner on resigning him!  Look at Paul George...he was in the same boat that he was not gonna resign with anyone and the Thunder took a chance and now they have him on the books for years to come cuz he changed his mind.  Players in the NBA seem to change every month as to what they want to do.  Get rid of Butler, get some good assets, and move on.
    • I have about 100 left.  Hoping to use them up before the ice season.  The commercial flats do not have a cover and we slip them into a Menard shopping bag.  I have a 1/3 flat (or so) with a cover that is keeping them inside.
