It looks like a hanger and it pushes together so you can get it inside the camelbak bladder. It then expands to dry out the bladder.

I'll try to post a link or get a picture for ya. My wife got it a REI

I didn't get anything hiking related. But I did get a real cute cotton camisole from my daughter that I wouldn't dare wear at the moment. :oops: Guess it'll push me to work on those New Years resolutions. Oh, and a gift certificate to the Runner's Den, suppose that will help get me going!

He was very good to me.

An Arc'Teryx Bora 40. It holds 2900 cu" and has a nice set of straps on the side for quick access to my tripod.

Awesome suspension!

One of the coolest thing I recieved from a friend in NY was a Custom made, solid Hickory Hiking Stick. He makes and sells them out of his workshop in his garage It was He asked me to measure the the distance from my elbow to the floor and on Tuesday I got it in the mail.

I dont think I would take it outside for fear of getting scratched up 8)

I love Arc'Teryx gear. Really excellent stuff. Wish I had one.

I got diddly-squat in the way of camping/hiking gear. Just lawn care stuff since we got a new house with a yard. yippee (heavy, HEAVY sarcasm there).

Cindy,

I just did a quick search online for Runner's Den and couldn't find anything about them. I'm looking for a shop that can intelligently help me find new running shoes (Santa didn't come through). It sounds like you would recommend them. If so, where are they located?

Thanks...

The Runner's Den is at 16th Street and Maryland. As far as I know, that's the only location.

As far as I know Mike's right, that's the only one. In Tempe there is Performance Footwear on Rural and University. Nice folks. Happy running!
