    Smile Yeh Dutch

    In order to lighten up my DIY tarp setup, I recently purchased a roll of Zing-it from Redden in Bellingham, WA, (with the HF discount, or course).
    I then ordered a pair each of the flyz and hooks from Dutch.
    After 3+ weeks of patiently waiting, I reluctantly e-mailed Dutch to ask if my small order had been sent or delayed (or possibly lost in shipping). He responded quickly to state that the order had been shipped the 3+ weeks before and was immediately re-sending the order priority mail.The priority mail envelope arrived.


    thanks Dutch

    Yeah Dutch. . He makes great gear, a great guy and fun to hike with when you can keep up.
    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.

    My logic proving Dutch can indeed spin straw into Titanium

    Quote Originally Posted by lilricky View Post

    First, while I can not know, a prioiri, that Dutch makes his products out of straw, it makes logical sense that he can. Here's my proof;

    Premise 1
    Straws suck.

    Premise 2
    Dutch sells Titanium products.

    Premise 3
    Dutch's products don't suck.

    Given these three known facts, it follows that:

    If Dutch tried to make something out of straws the final product could not be straw because those suck. Since we also know that everything Dutch makes is Titanium, and that Dutch makes nothing that sucks, it is only logical that Dutch can make Titanium out of straw provided the following:

    1. He is not out hiking.
    2. He can find some way to break free of the lovely ladies.
    3. He wants to do it.

    In fact, the only thing Dutch can't do is fail to impress.

    +1 to the thread.

    Perhaps his greatest accomplishment is his ability to maintain humility while possessing such qualities of kindness, generosity, intelligence and good looks!

    You guys are going to make Dutch's head swell if you keep it up...then he will need to create the Dutch Helmet to reform it to normal size. That, of course, will cause another cycle of well-deserved kudos, which in turn will mean an new, improved Dutch Helmet will be created.
    And so on...


    Seriously, I second or third, or whatever number we are up to on the excellent customer service. He once offered to drive new Dutchware to Carlisle so I could have it in time for the weekend! He's faster than FexEx!
