    Vacationing in Scotland next month....can i visit DD 'headquarters' to buy a tarp???

    Just wondering if one of the DD guys frequents this board.....

    As stated in title......I just so happen to be vacationing in Scotland next month and see that DD appears to be based out of Edinburgh. I'm in the market for a tarp and wonder if i can purchase direct??

    I'm not sure about visiting direct, Id email DD from their site or phone them and find out directly-they are usually very helpful.

    I know of a couple of people who've been to visit Nick in person to collect kit, that was a few years ago now though, before he was famous

    It would be great to see some pics of DD's facilities if you get the opportunity.
    I love my DD Frontline, it would be nice to see where it was made.

    Tell Nick I said "Hi"! He seems like a really great guy and all the emails I've gotten from Penny have been great. I bet they're really good folks.
    Second what wabi said, I'd love to see some pics!

    Well I.didn't realize that its free shipping so I may go ahead and just order a Tarp. I'm still considering attempting a visit though. (limited time in Edinburgh)
