    According to research, spending money on experiences is more gratifying long term than spending it on material items. So if I were you, I'd put it towards that overnight stay with the lady.

    Buy your own book then frame the screen shot of your sales or somethan.

    Tbh, you shouldn't have told her. Invest it in crypto. Anyone who says it's unstable isnt lying, but that's later on. Verge, Stellar, Tron, Cardano, etc. Nerds try to base their decisions on trust which they hope to gain from studying the business all the while buying prices are surging. Don't. It's easy money in the short term. Buy low, let it build, then pull it in a couple months. Binance.

    Handle it bro.

    yea it's also twice as costly, twice as bulky, and would take five times the amount to set up. And the sami are the indigenous people of Norway. They look white, not that I give a damn so far as functionality is concerned.

    Oh it'll be an experience. The lady, dog, and I cozied up in that thing. A canoe on the shore. The snow softly falling and a warm meal over the fire.

    I'm with Maker's on this one as far as the experiential value of a primitive camping trip vs. a hotel room in a city. Once you make the initial equipment investment, you can keep having experiences without spending much money at all.

    Re: Ice fishing: why not just by an ice house? They have some that are like sleds that you can toe out on the ice with a 4 wheeler (or truck I suppose if the ice is strong enough). You can put a heater in there as well to keep it warm. Plus these things are a cinch to set up, would take like 2 min.

    and what you now ardently desire will one day become the object of abhorrence.

    I don't have money for both and tipi serves more functions, including, maybe being an ice house.

    They are pretty light. you could prolly drag it behind you.

    OK, sorry, I know that's not what you want to hear, I'll shut up now.
