    Here comes my MacCat deluxe!

    After seeing Brian's announcement that he would be closing down shop at least for awhile, I couldn't resist the urge to jump on board and grab a MacCat before it was too late. I mulled it over a few days, and after talking to Brian and him being so helpful, I decided today to pull the trigger on a forest green deluxe with 4 side pullouts. Now I'm all excited and can't wait for it to get here!! I'll be stalking the mailman everyday! Thanks for everything, Brian, and I sincerely hope the job is everything you hope it to be.

    Actually, it was the other way around for me, I didn't need this tarp to be my deep winter camping tarp or for really bad weather (I'm planning on a superfly in the future for all of that), so I was seriously considering the standard. After talking with Brian though, I felt like it was worth the few extra dollars for the extra space under the deluxe. The ultra was always just bigger/bulkier than my needs.

    From my understanding Brian had offered custom work as well but at this time no customizations are available. At this time he sells only three modifications of MacCat series only. I at his announcement about closing down his shop got not enough $$$ and missed opportunity to snag one of last items in stock but after the some while Brian returned to the tarp business and pulled that big trigger on MacCat ultra. If communications are somewhat hit or miss, but he done nice work, should I call it artristy on the tarp itself.
