Default One more treestand & I may get my walkin' papers, help a brother out!

Ok, so I overstated it a tad! My wife knows very little about hunting and thinks I am friggin' crazy for owning more than one treestand and always needing 'just one more'. Her logic, if you want to call it that, is that I can only hunt from one location at a time, so why would I need more than one? This would be the place I would normally take a jab at women, but knowing there are several wonderful women in this forum, I will mind my p's and q's!

PLEASE, PLEASE, straighten out the ol' ball and chain for me!!!

How many do treestands do each of you currently own and regularly use?

I currently have 6 lock on style stands, and about 5 climbers I think (last years count). I use my lock ons every time I hunt, but I only use 3 of my climbers regularly. 2 of the climbers I have are home made and uncomfortable and heavy as heck. So I only use them if I have to. I have recently purchased 1 more lock on stand and have 3 more on layaway. Hunters and stands are like women and clothes/shoes, you can never have too many.

Since I use only hangon stands, during the course of the season I may have as many as 8-10 different stand sights. I personally have 8 different stands at this time and usually pick 1 or 2 up if on sale somewhere. Looking to get 2 more.

I always have a funny debate with my girlfriend over stuff like that. We are always joking whether the hunting stuff I buy is a tool or a toy. I say they are tools. She says that they are toys.

Have flowers and baloons sent to her at her work so that she gets them in front of the people that she works with, they love that, with a note that says ( Just Because ) There is no logic in that, but it works every time.
