    Desperately Seeking DUTCH-POs

    Dutch, you're killing me! Just saw your vid for Clip on Tarp Pull Outs and figured I had to have a pair. And so I went to your site at outdoortrailgear.com . Alas they're not there. Say it ain't so. It seems the only thing faster than Dutch's lightning fast shipping is his cutting edge creative genius.

    I haven't cried so hard since they blinded Laura on Little House on the Prairie. My tarp without a pair of DUTCH-POs now is like being dumped by your girlfriend and not having a Leonard Cohen album to play while you tear apart the cute stuffed animal you were waiting to give her and shave your head preparatory to joining some strict monastery. (Sorry, this has stirred up some very unpleasant memories). I'd gladly go back to that Turkish prison, eat my foul-smelling goulash, give the guards my three kidneys, pay the $20 plus shipping and bring Dutch a shrubbery if it meant I could somehow get my hands on the Holy Grail of hammock accoutrements, the highly coveted and sought after, Dutch Clip on Tarp Pull Outs.

    Or as I like to call them, "DUTCH-PO"s

    (Dutch's Unrivaled Tarp Caressing Heavenly Pull Outs).

    You're amazing, Dutch! And easy on the eyes. And the world's greatest hiker! So please, please, please, put me on your waiting list.

    Look at that - Ask and ye shall receive! Very cool Dutch. Very cool.


    But I have to say - my curiousity is peaked. What is it we are talking about?

    I have new gear coming out and I made videos ahead of time. HangAndy subscribes to my youtube channel so he sees stuff before it gets released.

    Tato has been coming up with some cool stuff and I just have to find the time to get it package up and on my site.

    Here is a vid...but don't tell anybody.

    The O-ring solves the problem with Grip Clips in that they tend to slide on silnylon. The old fix for that has been to pace a rubber balloon in the Grip Clip. Very clever!

    I have a little more testing on the tensioners. Will be ready very soon. You don't need to preorder as I will have enough for everyone.

    I wish it was my idea, but Tato is the genius behind the design.
