I won't be selling them as that would deminish the meaning and I remember a story of people selling wares at a synagogue a long time ago and it made someone mad. I don't want to make anyone mad.

    I do hope this time of year is good to everyone out there. HF people are some of the best people I know, and it just feels like family here.

    Peace on earth, Dutch
    Although I would love to aquire one of these, I was fairly sure that a man who would send these out unsolicited would give an answer like that,

    Blessings on you and your Mission. The Spirit led you in a fantastic direction with this one.

    As long as you accept any currency, you are probably ok.

    A perfect Christmas gift the Dutch gave you Gunner.

    I've got one similar to this...well the center part anyway. It weighs nothing and does not need anything to be suspended. If you look real close you can see it at times (although not enough times I must admit) in my life. It cannot be displayed on any vehicles or even suspended from a pack because it is invisible unless worn in the heart.

    Thanks Gunner/Dutch...this post made my day!

    At this point I'm thinking, Oh Boy I got a new Dutch prototype and it must be because I am a member of the LODGU ( Loyal Order of Dutch Gear Users ).

    Opened the card and it had a small metal part 1.5 inches long and .5 inches wide with a cross cut out and a small loop. It weights in at a massive 3 grams. No sure if its Aluminum or Ti. Trying to figure out how to use it with my hammock

    Thanks for the great gift.
    Neither- It's Stainless Steel. I got 1 also, and sent a TY PM to Dutch. He then told me that they were stainless. I don't wear a necklace and since it is stainless, mine is on my keyring. And once again, TY Dutch.

    This post made my day. It's been a particularly bad week for me and I haven't smiled in a couple days...until now. Tonight I'm sitting here and I really needed to see a reminder of God's work in us, and this post did it. It's something so simple, that can give so much peace.

    Just before I deployed for Desert Storm, my girlfriend gave me a simple silver pendant for my dog tags that said "Come home safe. I love you." I looked at that pendant many times, or just touched it where it laid on my chest and knew someone was thinking of me. I did just what that pendant said to do, then married her. 21 years later it is still on my dog tags and I wear it every time I go to the woods.

    Thanks for posting this, gunner. Dutch, keep being real. You are quite a guy. I hope to see you again next month.

    "I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful... because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...." --Robert Traver
