    I'm now broke thanks Dutch

    Just received my order the other day from Dutch, $300 worth B-) Seems a lot but I ordered enough suspension systems for about 5 hammocks for my scout hammock classes I'm doing. Converting all the hammocks to adjustable webbing and dutch clips. Converted my sons Hennessy finally and also got a set of Whoopie Slings for demonstration. Also got 3 sets of dutch flyz and tarp clips plus some misc dyneema. Luckily my wife doesn't know lol

    There is broke and miserable then there is broke and happy as a clam at high tide.

    I have not done business with the one and only Dutch (who I hear if you ain't Dutch, you ain't much), but I can tell from all who have that he is the kind of guy that will leave you smiling as you apply for that 2nd or 3rd job. Dutch has a spotless reputation and is one awesome dude!
    Happy Trails to one and all.
    Enjoy the outdoors wisely and elevate your perspective.

    Hey, charge for the classes, something like 2 dollars a head. Then you should make it back little by little. OR, at least make them make you some smores.

    Yes, I can see how this could happen. I resisted buying any of that fancy schmancy UL stuff for a long time. Just couldn't see any real advantage to it. But then...I happened to pick up a pair of 'tarpflyz' from a forum member. Rats...those things are so much lighter, smaller, and just plain work better than what I was using. Now I need to replace the carabiners with Dutch clips, the mitten hooks with those tiny little 'biners', and maybe if I can sell some other stuff I can afford to try those cinch buckles. And I thought my setup was complete

    Mine is never complete, always a work in progress if you ask me.
