It is hard to believe it is already December! As the weather gets colder and snow begins to fall (for some of you!), it can be challenging to prioritize spending time outside, especially as we get wrapped up in the busyness of the holidays. Whether it’s solo, with your family, or friends in the community, it is our sincere hope that you’re able to find spend some time outside this season.

What's new in Conversations?

This month, we were excited to launch the Co-op Living Archive group in the community. This group is intended to be an active resource of information and inspiration for co-op members. It celebrates the past, creates context for the present, and guides the future. If you’re curious about interesting figures in Co-op history, have an old piece of REI Co-op Gear that you have questions about (or just want to show off!), or just need an excuse to share a photo of your REI Co-op Gear out in the field, this is the place to do it!

Topic highlights for the month.

If not now, when? (@Bonfire

OK, I got bored, so I organized a bit. What’s your gear storage system? (@SILHiker)

- Thoughts on wool vs merino wool? (@Dustin001)
In case you missed it:

For the seventh year in a row, REI celebrated #OptOutside on Black Friday. We really enjoyed reading about all the different ways you commemorated the occasion in @John's post, What was your 2021 Opt Outside Activity? See how your fellow members enjoyed their time outdoors, or add yours today!

Lastly, if you are looking for ideas for holiday shopping, there is still time to fill out your wish lists. If you need some help, check out our Holiday Gift Guide before heading over to @Philreedshikes's post, Dear Santa…This year I would like…, and let everyone know what you’re hoping for this holiday!

As always, we appreciate all your contributions that help make this community such a fun, engaging, and helpful place. We can't wait to see what you do outside this month!
