    Already?

    Seems like last week you were in high school & just starting making tarps.

    I for one am grateful for all you have done for us, & wish you well in whatever you do!

    I especially want to thank you (& I hope I did so before!) again, for my custom tarp you did for me a few years ago, I love every inch of it!!!!

    Loved my Deluxe enough to to upgrade to one in Spinn. You do fine work. I have no doubt that it shows in other areas as well.

    Full steam and best of times while moving ahead.

    Yeah Brian, feel like I've known you a long long time. Very proud to have used your tarps. I still remember the first McCat-how long ago was that! And my cuben stealth-cat is now a collectors item
    So go out there in the 'real' work world and do wonders.

    Congrats on the job Brian. My Sil Maccat Deluxe is my official go-to tarp and a true work of art. Thank you for the fine work that I know will keep me dry for years to come, and when you do venture back into tarp making I will be one of the first in line to add another OES to my collection, but for now, get out, hike, hang, and enjoy life to the fullest, because it passes too quickly and we should savor every moment.

    Congrats Brian. My OES tarp is still my favorite. Good luck in Boston.

    I bought my first tarp from you about 5-6 yrs ago, and my most recent one this past Fall. Now I need to go to your site and see what is in stock.

    I worked in downtown Boston for a few years, back before you were born, probably. If you need any ideas for places to visit, let me know. I still have friends in the area. Good luck in the new job!

    Congratulations. I know a few engineers and never met one that didn't love doing what he was doing, so you will be happy with whatever it is this company does.

    My big (15-footer) OES tarp is still going strong and they will probably wheel me into a nursing home before I wear it out. Thanks for your effort to make that thing.

    Congrats on the job Brian! I have to say that I saw this day coming when you announced you were going to graduate school in ME. There's employment in that direction. But the way you were able to make and sell tarps while in grad school....well, you could well be back.

    For the time being anyway I can view my trove of OES tarps not only as gear, but as an investment

    good luck

    Brian, enjoy the new trail your hiking down. I really hope its full of life's enjoyment and gives you new horizons to explore as I know it will. I know I will keep my OES tarp forever and appreciate your work that went into it for me. Good luck and enjoy life where ever it takes you.
