    Double sided whetstone
    Knife sharpening is something I've wanted to learn and get good at for a Long time.

    Keep me posted, I have been using the ceramic kind you just run the knife through. My dad always had the whetstone and did a good job, seemed better than what I've got.

    Nice, Shawn. I have a triple stone set. And I have a mini dual ceramic sharpener like Jay has. They are great for a quick sharpening on the go.

    Took advantage of the sale and grabbed XL

    I'll keep you in the loop. My dad has been the go to Guy for everyone we hunt with, he can put a razors edge on any knife. He's been having issues lately but I'm hoping he'll be able to give me some pointers.

    Oooh, that looks nice. I also have the crossed ceramic sharpener, works well but I always loved the way a whetstone works. Something about manually Sharpening that's pretty Damn manly lol

    I agree Shawn. I much prefer manually sharpening all of my blades.

    I've been wanting that XL for a while. It went on sale and I pulled the trigger.

    1x11, 1x12 is like 1/2# heavier and I don't need the extra range. I'm going with 30t x 10-42 (sram).

    I have 2x10 on the xc bike, I would like 1x11 on that but really could do 1x10 just need to go lower gear on my front.

    For sharpening, I like to use this: Lansky Deluxe 5-Stone Sharpening System

    It's great for getting the precise sharpening each and every time without having to take off a lot of metal. I score each of my knives that I use it on so that I know exactly where to place the clamp each time. that's on my cheaper knives. For the more expensive knives I will leave some tape or something to remind me where I was placing the clamp. For the kitchen knives I leave a leave a little dimple with a center punch as to the middle of the spine of the blade so that I can find where IO want the clamp each time.

    I keep my blades nearly shaving sharp all the time. I touch them up with a leather strop regularly as well to keep the blades great.

    we save ~$6k/year on after school car now that I'm working third shift (and I make more and health insurance is less). We also will be saving some on summer camps this summer as they're staying in town -vs- YMCA camp also because of my third shift. So we've decided to take that money and put it into family trips and making memories. CO was a "work" trip as the ticket was free and I was paid but it was a solo trip. 2 weeks later we went to FL, my parents picked up the plane tickets as they're down there this winter so we paid for the weekend in Disney. And yeah, now Iceland!!! So we're stretching the money as best we can and having some fun! Next year we're taking the kids skiing in MT!!!!

    I'm terrible at keeping track of my wallet so I figured I'd make it yell at me when I lose it.

    is that their stock image (since you could actually leave your wallet somewhere near that point on the map!)? Neat idea, a co-worker got them after I told him about them. I'm OCD about my keys and wallet/phone all the time so it's not really a problem personally but it's a great product for those that need it. I need something for camera gear for when I'm packing for a trip. Not lenses or bodies but sometimes I'll have to search my desk area for some specific stupid little part..

    Lol yeah that's their stock image but I did laugh that's it's basically our NYC office.

    I rarely misplace **** when I'm traveling but it's when I get home and just set stuff down that I have problems. I'm on a trip to Boston right now with no wallet, a borrowed credit card, and my passport as ID because I had my wallet in my running pants while on an errand after a workout and then put the pants and wallet in the laundry that night and couldn't find it the next morning while frantically tearing the apartment apart before my train left. I'm less worried about spotting it on a map and more interested in the loud noises.

    I hereby declare "bought bile" to be a new phrase. We can use it to explain when you do something to screw with somebody else. "Ah, I bought bile for Tim by telling his wife he was out at the bar."

    tbot must be broken...

    It was a bit more money than I'd hoped to spend but the kid lives on his bike, probably rides it every day and he loves it (like most kids). My other two love theirs too. I just wanted to make sure we got him something decent because with as much use as it gets I want durability and also I think a lighter and better equipped bike is just so much better.

    The first bike we got him was like $60 brand new and it weighs so damn much. It's also falling apart after 2 kids so I have to piece it together for Evan to learn on. After that one I decided to only get higher end bikes since they will see a lot of hard use and get passed down kid to kid for the most part.

    It's a wise investment IMHO. Anything that will keep your child wanting to be outside and not sitting in front of a TV or Tablet is a good thing and priceless.

    Once my first two grew up enough that they likely not grow too much further, we ended up with Trek MTB for each of them.
    My third one is still growing, and he ended up with a Roadmaster from WalMart - until he grows up some more.
    For the fourth one, once he outgrew his second hand Trek Mountain Lion, I found a 24" Diamondback on local Craigslist, so he is rocking that.
