    Hammock deals (share them if you find them)?

    I have found on other camping/gear related forums that a thread for sales and deals that members find for equipment and want to share to be of great value...literally. Times are hard and finding a nice price spreads itself pretty far in its effect, specially when it is considered a "hobby" by family members, lol. And if anyone is even remotely like me, I still screw up OFTEN even after doing my "research" and have to do upgrades just as OFTEN.


    I was wondering if it was within the rules and in the interest of other forum members (and of course the mods) to possibly put a sticky thread in the "for sale" section for sweet deals/coupons/sales they find when gear hunting? Not only will it help us save money it would also help keep this type of info centralized on the forum-less work for the mods during spring cleanings.

    And if this already exist and I'm missing it then could some kind soul point me in the general direction.

    Hmmm...i did find the "other vendors" section and that is sort of like it but it looks like its more of a place for vendors to post deals and to say thanks for the awesome work they do, not a place for us to share sales and such. I'll keep looking.

    Although I'm not sure if it is actually allowed by the rules people do at times post deals they find in the for sale forum.

    It would be nice if there was a sub section in the for sale forum for things like that.

    +1 on this. I've gotten a lot of great deals, steals, and coupons off of our forum, but usually by accidentally running into it. I've missed a bunch too. It would be handy to have the sales, coupons and such in one area.

    I like this idea a lot, I found out about the golite 50% off sale through this site and was able to get a new pack and some clothes but I'm suprized I didn't miss the thread. I think it would be a great idea!

    For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision; And today well-lived, makes yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day; Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!

    I agree. It is a very useful feature on other forums. Can somebody add this?

    I think it is an awesome idea. I have loved getting good deals on items I heard about on this forum. Noob's can definitely use a thread like that to get them started at a lower cost when possible.

    I have seen and posted notices in the "For Sale" section on great deals on other sites I have found on the web.

    I am interested to see a Mod comment on this as these posts are FYI notices only and have no monetary gain for the poster (hopefully).

    I hope this is not deemed inappropriate as this is a great community builder.

    Mods- comments??

    I think a FYI-SALE! sticky would be a good idea as well.

    My 2 cents.
