Even though I've never shopped one of their stores, I thought REI's idea of closing up shop on Black Friday and getting outside was something I could go along with. The weather was warmer than normal, perfect for being outside, and I made a few trips over to the local nature preserve this holiday weekend. I managed to time it well enough to see an airplane from the nearby airport drop some skydivers. I could actually hear them yelling, "woo hoo" from where I was. What hotdogs! Some of them were turning somersaults. I was content to watch from the ground.
Hope you had a chance to get outside this weekend.
