Jon's 2009 Christmas List

As a guy, I'm stereotypically hard to shop for. As such, I've put together this list (which I'll update as more things come to mind) for the convenience of those who would like to get me a gift. I did my research and found what I thought to be the best value/fit for me of each of the gift types - that Arcan Jack looks like it will outlast the car I'd like to use it on. All in all, I appreciate time with family and friends more than anything during the Christmas season - but gifts are always welcome distractions :)
