I'm not a dad, but several of my friends who are new fathers are scheming about the new gear they're hoping for on Fathers Day.  I've heard dreams of down filled bags, fantasies about titanium mugs, and soft-shell reveries.  Are you fantasizing about some gear? What kind?

As long as its given with love the item is irrelevant. 

Trying to buy gear for some one else's specialized hobby is a difficult task.  However someone likes to show their love (see Rick Warren's famous book) I try to accept it in the spirit that it was given.

i'm happy with a card for father's day.  Marmot's polartec neoshell Zion softshell would be great, though.

Hammock to veg out in on FD, and perhaps an Ipod loaded with tunes to veg out to...

No gear fantasies, but would gladly accept a "get out of here and go hike somewhere" ultimatum.

Valandre Bloody Mary. However, I won't complain if I can't get one because I just got this: http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-us/bikes/model/anthem.x.29er.2/9029/48892/

 Lol, there are a few other Hille models out there I could classify as needs. The Saitaris is quite a load for my solo trips. 

I suppose I could need a new Suunto Ambit to replace my Core, maybe a few more packs, sleeping bags...

...and a lobotomy. :p
