    Dutch in Wikipedia

    I have been spending a little time at Wikipedia updating the article there on hammock camping. I even managed to give a mention to Dutch's Tarp Flyz, along with Triangle Thingies, Whoopie Slings, 2QZQ mod, Dutch Clips, self-tensioning line and even SnakeSkins. Please feel free to check out and improve the article. If anyone here is a contributor there I tried to get the graphic from Whoopieslings (the cool one showing the basic hammock setup) on there but even with their permission to use Wiki is really hard to work with when dealing with copyright. Could use some help.

    The article is at

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hammock...ng#Suspension_

    And to finally give a little respect to Dutch from all of us, you may want to check out,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thom_Dutch

    Yep, I think Dutch has been such an innovator here he deserves to be immortalized. Personally, I don't want to made immortal through my work, I want to be made immortal through not dying.

    Hangandy,

    Great write up! Just for giggles I went into Wiki and added the picture from our website. Not that I know what I'm doing or anything but it is on there even though it may not be in the format you desire. Reformatting is beyond my current knowledge level of how to work with Wiki. Maybe you can tweak where need be.

    Thanks!

    Should you check with Dutch about this to see if he is okay with it ? Just asking.
    Take care,

    Good Point

    Yikes, I never thought about it. In reality, I know WP would see him as fair game, but us hammockers are a whole lot more courteous so I should have known better. Next thing his designs will be on Wikileaks.

    I just emailed him.

    Another thought. Maybe you should PM him. I thought the hammock article was well done but I know how I feel about internet privacy ( I don't subscribe to Facebook or even like it.). I just think it would be better to talk to Dutch.
    Take care,

    I'm flattered of course. You really don't want me to have a bigger ego though. I would think there is so many people on here more deserving. Don't take it down though I have to link it to my facebook page. Those people thing I'm just normal.
    Peace Dutch

    Hey Dutch,

    Glad you like it. I was just a little concerned about someone else posting that without checking with you. All is good now.
    Take care,

    Glad you like it!

    I knew you would approve, especially since you were quoted as being the world's greatest hiker. What I was worried about was that there was no reference to dark chocolate or 5th Grade Vicky. Kind of like a bio on JFK w/o Marilyn Munroe in there.
