If you like to go chop down your Christmas tree each year like we do, you probably know how difficult in a field of Christmas trees it can be to find just the right tree. Especially if you go as a family, one person might find one good tree over here that he/she wants everyone to look at, and someone else might find a tree over there for everyone to consider...but then how in the world will you find that first tree again, after you go look at the second tree and you decide you want the first tree after all? I mean, after 5 minutes at the Christmas tree farm, all the trees start to look the same.
In years past we've tried a few different methods - we've used the "find-a-stick-and-stick-it-in-the-top-of-the-tree" to mark it way, we've also used the "you-stand-here-and-wait-while-I-go-look-at-the-other-tree" method as well. But THIS year, I think you can guess from the photo what we did!
DH had the brilliant idea to waymark the trees we liked using his GPS. (Waymarking is basically just using the GPS to "mark" and save the coordinates of a location.) I believe in this photo he is marking "Tree 2". We eventually ended up getting "Tree 1". (In case you're wondering, we only ended up waymarking two trees - don't be thinking I dragged DH all over the farm making him waymark every other tree - I didn't!)
Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
