    WooHooo!!!

    Just when we were starting to give up hope...

    Take your time, Opie, and remember, family comes first.

    Thanks again for doing this!

    Allright... I got through 2 rolls tonight. 1 orange and 1 green.

    First batch of orders goes out tomorrow. If yours is shipping out, you will receive shipping confirmation via email.

    For those that paid instant or marked it as a gift, there will be no shipping confirmation, so I will place those notifications here.

    Bonsaihiker, sir_nothing and Animal Control, yours are going out in the first batch.

    Whimper..... That means I get mine last.



    It's my fault. I waited too long to jump on the Whoopie bandwagon, and seeing how awesome that rope is, needing 200' of the stuff.
    I ride a recumbent.
    I like to HAM it up on the CW.
    I use Linux.
    I play go.
    Of course I sleep in a hammock!

    Rug.

    Hang On!

    Dont feel bad Rug, I wont be far in front of you. I had to get a message from "the Sparrow" that I had not paid yet... .

    No problem though. I suspect the people at "the bottom of the list" will only have to wait a day or so more. I know Opie is on top of it (I can just see him feverishly waking back in forth between his 50'-100' measuring stakes.)

    Hmm now lets see, I think he said there was 12,000 feet. Divide that by 100 and you get a minimum of 120 trips back and forth across the yard.

    Hope you got your good shoes on for your 2.27 miles of rope walkin! Dude, get some video of that, too funny. I say give the end of that rope to one of the kids and make them earn those christmas presents.

    Its worse than that. When I came up with that system, it was nice outside.

    Now its raining, cold, snowing. We have a small house....

    So its 10' at a time.

    But my home made winder is working out sweet. I know thats saving me time.

    opie, when your line does 'finally' come in, see if you could use your local gym basketball court, for running out your measurements. You'll be indoors, and the floor already has measurements. Typical court dimensions. Double check the measurements on the floor, just to be sure. 2cents.
    Or a nice long school hallway would be convenient, too.

    Thats not a bad idea. Im already through 2 spools, only 3 to go and most of those are 200' or less.

    Probably just stick to it here.
