Gary's main business is making cargo straps and other products not associated with camping and/or hammocking. Apparently, he added the outdoor products to his website selling the non-outdoor products and his bean counters have a problem with that, so he's in the process of converting one bidness to two.
I believe that most cottage guys producing hammock gear are doing so as a side bidness, just as Gary is, and I would guess that most of those work as employees of another business as thier day job. Apparently, its even more complicatged when you own your own business and try to expand outside the scope of that business.
Its your Government at work, making it easy for folks to run businesses and make money.
