    Well . . . Both sad and happy.
    Happy that Beth is moving forward with her medical career. Happy that Jason will be advancing in his career. Happy that you and Beth will only be in Pittsburgh and not so far from home as she anticipated. Happy that we will get to see even more of you at hangs.
    Sad for the business and loss of a truly fine hammock line, for now at least. Mostly sad for the heart wrenching decisions.

    Your future is bright with opportunities. Go For It!

    That is correct. However, you will receive severance unpay for 60 days. :P

    Ditto George! We'll stay in touch. See you at MAHHA!

I'm very glad I found you all in time to get one of your hammocks while the getting was good. I've spent about a dozen nights in my Netty (my first real hammock) since getting it just a few months ago. Hammeck was wonderful to work with, and everytime I go for a hang I'm still impressed with the quality of my hammock! Thanks for such a great introduction to hanging, and I wish you all the best

    Thank you Brett! I hope you get a lot of use out of your Netty!

    Thank you squidbilly! Here's hoping I get to meet you at a hang sometime! Beth and I are looking forward to having a little more time for backpacking trips in the near future, but we will likely be contacting you about a couple of tarps.

    Thank you Pappy! Looking forward to seeing you at a NC hang in the near future. We won't make this one, but hopefully the next one!

    Excellent marketing strategy. You've just motivated me to order that stand of yours finally. order placed

    Sorry to lose such an excellent vendor but congratulations, the culmination of so many years of hard work is coming to fruition!
