    The Perfect Trees by Stormcrow

    Hello Fellow hammock forum members!

    It is time once again for the unveiling of another small business venture. I recently decided dip my toe into the world of DIY projects related to hammocks, more specifically, goose down insulated gear. Anyway, apparently something clicked. I made all of my own gear first, then the my wife’s, then the brother’s, a friend’s, ...etc, you get the picture. The hours I put into the work did not seem like work at all to me. So, it was suggested by a number of HF members and family that I should offer some of my creations to other likeminded enthusiasts. I did, and the response was pretty good.

    So, I am officially announcing my website to the forum. The site is obviously still a work in progress. I will be posting more pictures and adding more features and products to the site very soon. Sewing is taking priority right now.

    I would like to especially thank a few people. First, I would like to thank fellow forum member Fin for his help in getting this company started. Without his help it would probably not have happened. He is a good person and I am proud to call him my friend. I would also like to thank Dejoha. This web designing machine, who is also an active forum member here, knows how to build and market a website! (Is the music cuing me off stage yet?) I also need to thank me wife for being the goose down handling specialist of this operation. That job kind of sucks at times! She is quite the patient spouse!

    Also a big thanks to you members out there that pushed me in this direction. You are all like a big family to me (but you are NOT all getting Christmas presents from me...)

    That is pretty much it it! Visit my site at:

    Thank everyone,
    Stormcrow

    Woot! Nice Stormcrow! Don't forget to add a "customer testimonials" section to the site so I can spout my love of the Winter Ptarmigan.
    Best of luck in this venture bro!
