Updating the GTP Gift Guide

It’s that time of year, and I’ve gotten an email or two about posting something to give everyone a chance to add to the list here.  So let’s do it!

I’ll kick this year’s post off with three suggestions:

  1. A reader recommendation (thanks, Randy) are these custom made cornhole boards, sure to be a hit at your next tailgate.  They don’t have NCAA logos available, but they can be custom designed, so go wild.
  2. Your mancave, office or dorm is “between the hedges” with our replica Sanford Stadium.”  Say no more. (h/t)
  3. Some of you already have it, but Seth Emerson’s Attack the Day would make an obviously splendid holiday gift for that certain Dawg in your life.

All righty then.  Throw out your suggestions in the comments.  I’ll amend the Gift Guide accordingly.

    Jittery Joe’s Attack the Day coffee: https://jitteryjoes.com/collections/coffee

    I’m not a coffee snob, so I don’t know it’s any good or not, but the tin itself is pretty cool.

    If they ever come up with a version of Sanford Stadium that has a “Light Up Sanford” feature, I will buy it no questions asked.

    I got worn down by these guys ads on Instagram a few months ago and bought a t-shirt 3 pack. Have ordered two more times since including a very comfortable hoodie. Anyway, simple, really comfortable, good quality, and not ridiculously expensive. https://trueclassictees.com/ And, no, I have no affiliation to them, just a customer.

    Wright Thompson’s new book – Pappyland:A STORY OF FAMILY, FINE BOURBON, AND THE THINGS THAT LAST – for the bourbon fan in your life. Wright spent a TON of time with Julian van Winkle, learning about the history of the distillery, and the family, and how they operate.

        There’s a story around here that there was a time when PVW wasn’t as renowned and one of the family members just gave it away as Christmas gifts to people here. That was before my time, so I never got any, but I don’t think my palette is sophisticated enough to appreciate it anyway.


  5. Another good bourbon book:

      Per this site a couple years ago I’ve been rockn those on all my vehicles. I don’t have anything else that identifies my loyalties and those are very subtle. Have an extra set in each console in anticipation of them being snaked.
      Wife got new tires a few months ago from a reputable dealer in Athens. Immediately noticed the caps were standard black. Owner got them back most rikki tik.

    For the US military history buff on your list, I recommend Rick Atkinson’s Pulitzer-winning Revolution Trilogy–https://revolutiontrilogy.com–or his Liberation Trilogy–http://liberationtrilogy.com.

    For the fan of classic American crime fiction, any of Library of America’s Elmore Leonard books–https://www.loa.org/books/writer/206-elmore-leonard.

    For the fan of classic sci-fi/fantasy: the Penguin Galaxy editions of “Dune,” “Neuromancer,” “The Left Hand of Darkness,” “Stranger in a Strange Land,” “2001: A Space Odyssey,” and my favorite, “The Once and Future King.”

      I recently finished the first Atkinson book and can definitely recommend the Trilogy! He’s also got a book on the Revolutionary War that I’d love to read.

        Who else reads books about submarines?

        Consider “The War Below,” by James Scott. Great story of three subs in the Pacific during WW2. Also: Admiral James Stavridis’ “Sea Power” (not exclusively about subs) and Iain Ballantyne’s “Deadly Deep.”

        Good submarine genre fiction: “Run Silent, Run Deep” and “The Hunt for Red October.”

        Also consider C.S. Forester’s “Good Shepherd,” about an American/English/Canadian convoy of merchant ships being hunted by Nazi subs. Recently made into a movie of the same name, starring Tom Hanks. The book is far better than the movie. Forester wrote the great Horatio Hornblower books.

        Great maritime literary fiction: “In Hazard,” by Richard Hughes, and Melville’s “Omoo,” “Typee,” and of course “Moby-Dick.”


  7. I recently started wearing the new long sleeve performance fishing shirts that Columbia and Huk make. They keep the sun off and can be worn on hot or cool days. They are also comfy as hell. Columbia makes UGA versions and I have seen them in red and white. Great for the lake, beach, or tailgate. https://www.columbia.com/p/mens-collegiate-pfg-terminal-tackle-long-sleeve-shirt—georgia-1892211_UGA.html?dwvar_1892211__UGA_color=690&dwvar_1892211__UGA_size=S&ef_id=Cj0KCQiA2uH-BRCCARIsAEeef3kLz-rtakPN8f-EQZ4IzSmR5T4qeB7rPczEOlc7EZrvsEi2xrFFhfEaAlGzEALw_wcB:G:s&mid=paidsearch&eid=Google+PLA+US&s_kwcid=AL!3937!3!295605960843!!!g!865021140449!&gclid=Cj0KCQiA2uH-BRCCARIsAEeef3kLz-rtakPN8f-EQZ4IzSmR5T4qeB7rPczEOlc7EZrvsEi2xrFFhfEaAlGzEALw_wcB

    I have been looking for UGA Dart flights for at least six months with no luck. I can’t even find full darts that I could take the fights off (except as part of a board combo). Does anyone know of anywhere that might these?

    I know i am late to the party here but if anyone is a beef jerky nut, Mingua. My sister went to the University of the South up there in the mountains. Married a good dude from LEX, and they have a family there now. He is a “four roses” guy, which isnt my favorite, but, this Mingua jerky is the bomb. Check it out. She (my sis) sends it to me because its only available locally or online. The original and the Cajun are both out of this world we live in.
