    DIY Gear Supply / Backwoods Daydreamer Update

    Just wanted to update you all on a few things going on over at DIY Gear Supply.

    First off, thank you for using this little supplier. It's been a lot of fun for me seeing the cool stuff you come up with.

    I've been working on a new website that will hopefully be a little more user friendly, both for you and for me. Right now to change anything at DIY Gear Supply I have to wait for my web guy to get some spare time (which is rare) to tweek whatever I need tweeked (he did it for free for me, so no complaints, I really appreciate all the work). But.. I want to change and add things more often than is practical, so the new site is going to allow for that (since I built it myself, I know how this one works - more or less).

    The new site is up at www.backwoodsdaydreamer.com. It's still somewhat of a work in progress. I need to add a lot more links, fix the look of the guides pages, and whatnot. When I feel the site is ready enough, it will fully take over www.diygearsupply.com.

    Ordering is live and ready - on both sites, but if you run into any issues please let me know (info@diygearsupply.com). International shipping limited on the new site, so for the mean time use the diygearsupply.com site for international orders.

    Also, we've added quite a few more products. Suspension rings, new colors of lots of products, new fabrics, foam, a bit of down, union tape (like omnitape) and more. If there's something you think I should carry, let me know through the contact page on the website.

    Thanks gang. Keep building great gear!

    This is all good news, Scott!
    Down here in Florida, summer (which is already here) is sewing season - too hot to hike.
    So, I was just starting to plan my projects which automatically means putting together my DIYGearSupply order

    Very nice new looking site. Glad to see things are on the up and up for ya. Now the real question is when are you going to start making tarps again . My favorite tarp is still that Back Woods Winter Dream you made for me many moons ago in black sil. Still use it every time I go car camping and it will always be one of my favorite pieces of gear. Thanks for all you do.
    Peace

    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    I like the new site and just placed an order.

    I would like an option for an "All Products" page like the old site. It made it easy for me to scan everything and see what I hadn't even thought of and to scan one last time before checkout to see what I forgot.
