    Seen At the Ozark Hang

    ...a bunch of kids from Minnesota...groundlings...they arrived with canoes and HUGE Duluth Packs, then set up camp, which resembled a small city.

    Of note, two large tarps hung as group rainflies with.............................................. .................................................. ..
    whoopie slings.

    The word is getting out. I just googled "whoopie sling", and the first hit was Opie's site.

    OG, I spent many hours reading into the best ways to get your website to turn up on the first page of an Internet search. It paid off.

    Also. Sidebar...... I had a company contact me about 2 weeks ago asking if I could make 12 slings from 1/2" Amsteel. I believe the company was Tech Line. Apparently they have a utility company as a client and need the slings for their workers. Unfortunately I had to turn him down since I'm not insured to provide safety or fall arrest equipment
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    We thought the group from Minnesota was going to be loud and crazy all night, but they went to bed before we did and was quite. They told me they were doing a 7 day float.

    And I thought only arborists and hammockers knew the power of the whoopie.
