REI garage sale baby!

Several times a year REI has an epic garage sale where all the returned items brought back to the store up till then are offered to REI members at ridiculous prices. That and the items usually have little to nothing wrong with them thanks to the REI return policy. This year I braved the cold and stood in line for 2hours to snatch this bob stroller. Actually funny story, I had to wrench the thing away from a line cutter who thought that it would be easier to just hop the fence and take whatever despite the threat of my frozen fist. Not one of my better moments but gosh darn it, there has to be some justice in this world. The stroller came home with us for only $60 and the reason it was returned... a "stain" on the fabric. Can't find it yet, the boys seem to like it.

Way to fight for it. Serves the butter right.

P.S. Is "butting" a term found only in Utah?
