just a reminder, Patagonia still actively supports the efforts of Earth First!, an acknowledged and unrepentant terrorist group who many believe are the finaciers of the ELF much like they themselves are financed by the sierra club. Please consider another manufacturer when you purchase fleece wear. Also, Lowe Pro the company who makes many soft camera bags and other types of soft bags is a very ardent wilderness supporter as is REI and many other major suppliers, know the politics of those you support through your spending (Brad is right on in his GM and Ford condemnations)
So, how can you give an ardent fourwheeler a gift that doesn't covertly undermine his, and your, ability to 'wheel? Make a donation in their name to one of the many fine Land Action Funds out there, UnitedFWDA (currently in litigation), USA-ALL (currently in litigation), SWFWDA (currently in litigation) and BRC are my favorites.
Thanks and a good holiday to all, regardless of which you choose to celebrate.
