dirty hiking bootsIf you don’t have your hiking plans finalized for Sunday Saturday yet, you may want to drop by the Santa Monica REI for the first Used Gear Sale of 2009.

The REI Used Gear Sales are a great way to replace some of your not-so-gently used items with upgrades, without spending all of your holiday cash. Sign up for a membership if you haven’t already, then brew some coffee and head over for 7AM. We hikers’ love bargains only slightly more than we like getting up early on the weekends.

Update: sale is on Saturday, not Sunday. I blame that mistake on jetlag.
