Holy crap, Don's on the ball! And a great turnout!

The idea I was trying to make work was this group of hikers comes across a crash site in the woods. There they find skeletons of some sort of animal, deer or elk or something. Nearby, they find a grand, very old and ornate sleigh, broken and overgrown. And a makeshift grave carved with the words "Here Lies Santa Claus".

The suspense was going to come from the thing that's out there, the thing that killed Santa and the reindeer. And if it wasn't for the minimal gore thing, I would have had Santa crash and witnesses come to investigate only to find the carnage, and Krampus or something is behind it.

I think this time around I'll read from the top down. Hopefully there is a good mix of quality throughout. I'm still on phone internet for a few days so I might have to come back to the first few with more detailed notes when I'm back in front of a computer.
