    Dutch in Wikipedia

    I have been spending a little time at Wikipedia updating the article there on hammock camping. I even managed to give a mention to Dutch's Tarp Flyz, along with Triangle Thingies, Whoopie Slings, 2QZQ mod, Dutch Clips, self-tensioning line and even SnakeSkins. Please feel free to check out and improve the article. If anyone here is a contributor there I tried to get the graphic from Whoopieslings (the cool one showing the basic hammock setup) on there but even with their permission to use Wiki is really hard to work with when dealing with copyright. Could use some help.

    The article is at

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hammock...ng#Suspension_

    And to finally give a little respect to Dutch from all of us, you may want to check out,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thom_Dutch

    Yep, I think Dutch has been such an innovator here he deserves to be immortalized. Personally, I don't want to made immortal through my work, I want to be made immortal through not dying.

    Hangandy,

    Great write up! Just for giggles I went into Wiki and added the picture from our website. Not that I know what I'm doing or anything but it is on there even though it may not be in the format you desire. Reformatting is beyond my current knowledge level of how to work with Wiki. Maybe you can tweak where need be.

    Thanks!

    Should you check with Dutch about this to see if he is okay with it ? Just asking.
    Take care,

    Good Point

    Yikes, I never thought about it. In reality, I know WP would see him as fair game, but us hammockers are a whole lot more courteous so I should have known better. Next thing his designs will be on Wikileaks.

    I just emailed him.

    Another thought. Maybe you should PM him. I thought the hammock article was well done but I know how I feel about internet privacy ( I don't subscribe to Facebook or even like it.). I just think it would be better to talk to Dutch.
    Take care,

    Ummm no mention of how easy Dutch is on the eyes (even though Shug does a better Dutch than Dutch)!?

    I do like the Canadian/European diction. "Downpour", "favour", and "presence of a hammock camping pitch is much harder to detect"

    I think actually adds a bit of validity, if not distinction.

    Tea from the hammock, anyone?

    Serously though, I like it.

    Of course Hawkeye says I ain't right.
