The package arrived at my brother's place today.  I guess the boys have seen the bags and are excited.  All of the other stuff is wrapped and placed inside the bags, so they don't know what's coming.

I'm looking forward to hearing their reaction when they open them.  :D

I still have stuff from when I was a kid that someone else had this mindset to get me as well :cheers: I always loved gadgets and different types of sharps and shinys but some of that took a back seat as I grew up only for me to find it later on as a younger adult and then I came to appreciate it even more :tu: They will like it but it just may not be as much now as it is later :cheers:
That was basicaly the clue behind my story xD

Buy now or regret later

Weird Uncle Grant.......and you got them whistles?  :rofl:

Their parents are sure to hate you  :rofl:

I was just going through some of my more memorable xmas presents, and I figured if the boys are our kind people the kits will rank pretty high for them, as it would've for me back then!  :tu:

Well their grandmother beat me to getting them a drum set so I had to come up with something else!   :ahhh

I doubt that it will lure the older one away from the video games, and I worry that it might empower the younger one to wander off even more and get into more trouble....  :ahhh

On the average, they are a great kid!

Seriously, I love those kids, and I hope this gift helps them get out more and enjoy their time outside more.  If not I'll go back to buying Lego and Nerf guns.

Well, if the grandmother already got them drums, you could always get them some Bagpipes.

An accordion might also make a nice gift. Or harmonica's if the shipping costs for the accordion is too much.

Being an uncle is so much fun!

I EDC'd a SAK before MacGyver did...

Being an uncle who lives far away and is never going to be asked to babysit is so much fun!

Fixed.... :D

I was talking to my brother a little while ago, and the younger one is actually pretty excited about the kit.  He is really looking forward to using it on outdoor adventures this year.  He is by far the one more likely to use it or go adventuring.

Of course, monkey see, monkey do, so when the older one saw the younger one getting excited about it, he also started to get excited about the stuff as well.

I think this summer I am going to try to arrange for a short adventure with them- maybe a short hike (very short, for my sake as much as theirs!) or maybe a little kayak trip.  There are lots of islands we can paddle to, set up one of my stoves and make lunch then play a little before paddling home.

Good to hear to boys are excited.  I guess thats the first step.  Opportunity and someone to show them how to use the kit is another step.  I hope you can get over there and show them how to use it and how much fun it can be.

Absolutely. It's too bad I won't see them until the spring at the earliest.  It's a bit of a haul from getting stuff to being able to use it.
