    ME Too! It is kind of hard to estimate what the shipping is going to cost when somebody may buy 2 or 3 or 5 things it can add up or it might not be much at all. Just depends on what all it is, how much it weighs, and how bulky. But I am trying to keep the cost on shipping as low as possible, (for the most part after envelopes, ink, paper, and tape, I am just trying to break even with the post office. But with shipping from only one place most orders should come out well ahead of ordering from here there and everywhere to get some of the basic parts and pieces for a suspension or what not.

    Hope to make it all work better for all.

    great idea

    Good idea to be able to get all yer toys from one place. Have you considered flat rate priority postal boxes. Boxes are free, and postage reasonable.

    I have, and for lots of stuff, just by the light weight nature of a lot of the gear I have, I can beat the price, but I am very flexible. I have shipped fedex 2 day, priority, Priority international. Hey I will do whatever it takes to get you the gear you need as quick as I can. I have though had a couple packages make it First Class across country in 2 days, leave here in idaho on monday and be delivered east coast on Wednesday.

    I have a PO box, so USPS is my overwhelming preference.

    I think I mentioned this to you already, but paracord in as many variations as possible - especially glow and reflective. I'd like to make a bunch of reflective/glow lanyards to put on gear, but I'd have to get stuff shipped from four or five different places to get all the colors / variations I want.

    Not to get this thread too off topic. This seller on ebay offers paracord in 27 different colours. $3.95 for 50 foot lengths.

    If you're not particular on colour, the best price I've seen on paracord is at www.cheaperthandirt.com 4 cents a foot when buying 1000'.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the links Brian, but neither of them carries reflective or glow paracord, as far as I can tell.

    Does this make us "sub-forumers"?

    Paul, great to know there is another hammock-oriented gear outfitter run by a fellow hammocker. I now have the Arrowhead site bookmarked. -Bad (er, good) sign, very bad sign...

    Paul:
    Congratualtions on your aquisition of KAQ. I am very pleased with the New River that I got from MrPrez and it fits my NX-200 nicely, I hope you keep up the good work.

    I would like to see the specs on the Bushmaster Hammock chair.

    Also, the whole one stop shopping thing I am really liking. Like others have stated, shipping is killing my spending and gear addiction, I mean aquisition.

    I have not seen anybody bring up small Figure 9's so I will. I like how I have them on my tarp corner guylines with some bungie STL's

    That is a good one, I keep meaning to call Nitize and see what I can work with them. Got to put that on the list. O the list They are good to work with, a few years ago I set up the account with them at the gear shop I worked at. They have some cool stuff, would any body be interested in:
    1: S biners and what sizes? I like the 1's as they are so small,
    2: small 9's
    3: Large 9's
    4: small or large carabiner 9's
    5: Flashflight light up frisbee, I have one some place they are loads of fun
    6: anything else?
    I will have to see what if anything I can work with them but just curious if any body would want some?
