    patience

    as I sit now waiting for my gear to arrive ( big thanks to Brandon for the rush) I question my logic . does it really make it get here faster if I refresh the post office page every 5 minutes???? I am finding more and more great info here, with some many ideas and also links. glad to have this distraction while I wait

    Thanks everyone

    No, but it beats staring out the window looking for a delivery truck.

    The best part is handing a package to the delivery guy and saying "This came in the mail for you". The expression on his/her face is priceless.

    I have ordered seven major pieces of gear over the past 2 years. It never gets any easier. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a liar.

    i think its like boiling water, if you watch it its never going to happen. go play outside for a bit and it will be there in no time.

    agreed about the rum, and for sure better than watching from the window

    yes, it is kinda nice to know that some time soon, i'm going to get a sweet package in the mail but anything good is worth waiting for ...
    good advice, a beautiful night for some fishing thanks all
