    Exclamation No More Guide Gear 12x12 Tarps??!!

    As you may already know, guidegear.com is sold out of the 12 x 12 tarps. I sent a message asking when they plan to restock them. I received a meassage this morning stating... "I'm sorry, but the 12 x 12 Guide Gear tarp is sold out and is no longer available. Keep an eye on our website though, as our buyers may purchase a similar item in the future".

    Is this just a blanket response? Has anyone received this response before and then have the tarp become available?

    I am kicking myself for putting off picking up one!!!

    That is a blanket response. They pop up again every year around October, November as a preorder. You have to keep checking back. I ordered my first 3 last October as a pre order, and got them in March. I ordered two more in April and got them 2 days later. It's hit and miss, but they will have the pre order again if I had my guess.

    How about a Chinook as an alternative. They only have 5 left.
