I feel for the gap in your life without your gear! I too have waited what seemed months was only weeks for new ( toys ) gear to arrive! Like a kid at Christmas I would race home from work to see if it had arrived ! But like manny others have said these cottage vendors are great at what they do ! If you want slapped together mass produced overnighted junk go online that stuff is everywhere! I know I have to wait for custom made cottage gear! So hang in there your wait will most likely pay off !
High ground is dry ground!
