    What happened to the Speer Winter Tarp

    Big Al called me today.. they no longer offer finished tarps. The world will miss them. Sure glad I have one.

    hmmm, interesting that Ed would stop making them. I wonder if the guy who designed it had something to do with that?

    I think Ed has also stopped offering any kind of finished tarp, and the kit he does offer is his original non-cat cut 10x8 rectangular.

    There is also only one weight/size hammock (18.6 oz/22.8 with net). Not sure how long that has been in effect.

    Wonder what is going on?
    Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.

    I hope Ed is OK. I am hoping he is just slowing down to enjoy himself. He will probably be thinking about retirement in only 20 or 30 years. So many trails, so little time.

    Man, didn't see that coming! Glad I ordered myself one of those pretty "brown" (mine is totally olive green) SWT's when I did.

    wish I had ordered another one when his sale first hit. You could have made a killing on reselling it..lol
