Nightmares of Christmas Trees

A rendition of last year's tree.  Seriously.
For the second year in a row, I am going deep into the woods with my girlfriend's family to hunt for (and chop down) a Christmas tree.

Why?  Because in Idaho, you're not allowed to go to Target or a Christmas Tree Farm to buy a tree.  You need to go into the forest and earn it.

Thanks to last year, I'm dreading the trip.


Read this post about last year's experience.

I am thankful for the lack of snow on the ground this year.  For that reason alone, I don't think this trip will be nearly as bad.  But you can rest assured that I'm not only preparing for this odyssey, I'm probably over-preparing.

I refuse to die this year, like I almost did before.

If you don't hear from me tomorrow, mourn for me, mmmk?

I remember! I couldn't forget :D

Grab some empty "lemonade" bottles. Don't go with beer, someone might drink it.

And you've been working out still right? It's time to show off your burly man-ness! I believe in you! Now go, bring in a nice twig with leaves on it. Make us proud.

Here in Indiana, we have access to x-mas trees on every street corner. I have opted to go with the fake version, taking the easy way out! It took me a whole 3 minutes to open the box and set up the tree.

It reminds me of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Make sure you shake the tree to ensure there are no wild animals you're smuggling into your home. Be strong, brave hunter.

And now I have the intro to National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation in my head. :)
