First trip to Bellingham will look at buying a new GPS or a Spot Personal Tracker for my solo hikes in back country.

I used my dividend to buy a Marmot Arete 40+ sleeping bag and a Marmot Limelight 2 tent. The sleeping bag kept me nice and warm, even though the ground was covered with frost my first night out.

I will spend it on new boots.  I need new hiking and climbing boots every year.  My dividend allows me to painless pick out a new pair every year without shelling out the hard earned cash!!

I got my first Osprey backpack. Going to hit part of the Appalachian trail.

I used the 20% member coupon and my dividend to get my first pair of Chacos, the Z/2 in edgy green. BUT they are backordered so I probably won't get them for another 3 weeks.

i spent my dividend on a Marmot soft shell, REI hiking pants and a pair of hikers made by Keen.  they all performed amazingly well for me when i went snowshoeing in the high country of the Colorado Rockies last week. all the advice i got in the store proved correct and made my experience on the mountain great. thanks for your help and products, REI, they make all the difference.

Just used my 20% coupon, dividend, and free shipping membership perk to order a pair of Merrell Pace Glove shoes at a fab price!  They should be here later today... can't wait to get my feet in 'em!  :)

It's springtime!!  Time for another Grand Canyon Hike which requires some new hiking boots!  Asolo or Zamberlan.....can't decide.

I will head down to Bellingham from Canada and spend my dividend on a bike rack for my car so that I can plan more trips down to Galbraith Mountain near the store in Bellingham with my bike in tow. This bike rack will be cheap so that I can spend more money on my bikes in the future.

I bought some Merrill hiking boots.  I am currently on a work trip in LA and breaking in the boots on the beach.  Can't wait to hit the trails back home.

I used my dividend & 20% off coupon on a new tent. I ordered the REI Arete 3 ASL Tent and I cannot wait to try it out this summer!!

I bought Merrill hiking boots last year and hiked all over Alaska. My daughter tried on my boots and loved them too so I used my dividend to buy my daughter her own Merrills!

I'd like to think that i'm gonna save it and combine it with next years + that 20% coupon for a new down sleeping bag... only thing is, i planned to do that this time around and haven't been able to find an Ultralight 3 Season Down Bag for big guys.. i even tried losing weight :-(
