Each year on Thanksgiving Day, Jerry Carlson joins me to share his list of "must haves" for a good outdoor experience. And let's face it, next to Santa, this guy knows.

Some items on the list are more affordable than others. Some are for a specific use. All are good to find in the stocking or under the tree!  (And yes, that IS a hint...)
