Gift idea? Try a Gift certificate, the ideal way to avoid stress. Let them choose what they want! So EZ.
Our two headed schizophrenic sales pitch. If you decide to purchase your books, DVDs, exercise or other outdoor equipment through our store, you support our journey AND KEEP WAYWARD ASTEROIDS FROM CRASHING INTO EARTH...(no they don't stop that) Your purchase will help us launch Al Gore into space to rescue us all! (That's not true either, cut it out) Lots of people believe in Al Gore, so we shouldn't make fun. Maybe.

Anyway, thanks very much!

Adventure doesn't have to mean being homeless or destitute, but IT CAN, so please USE MY STORE, stop alien abductions, keep us from "Air Americas" fate. (You're hopeless)

I don't want to have to run for Congress after this gig is done ala Al Franken, but I will if I have to and only your support can stop it! (That's true. Believe him, he'll do it)
