    Thumbs up Incoming ..... Winter Palace ....

    Hi there list,

    I feel like a kid waiting on a very early or belated christmas or birthday present. Or worse a father's day present, although, as far as I know, I don't have any kids (only really adventurous DNA).

    Anyway, monday I finally got my tax refund and pulled the trigger.

    Yesterday (tuesday) I emailed Adam & Jenny directly since I wasn't sure about international sales and the website software and everything and had some questions too.

    Almost before I hit the send button, I got a reply from Jenny.

    They had just finished a black 12' cuben winter palace that they could ship directly. WOW!

    I had some more questions and the time difference between the States and Europe made me go to bed before being able to answer their last mail. Got up this morning and instead of checking HF first, I checked my mail, a man has got to know his priorities

    Yep all questions taken care of, invoice in my inbox ready to be paid which of course I did with lightning speed and now, being wednesday, Jenny & Adam are going to ship my new cuben tarp! Whooooo buddy!

    Just wanted to share .... will keep you updated. Thanks again Adam & Jenny! Or Stormcrow and Thorwren ....

    Grtz Johan

    You'll really enjoy it, so many variations on how you can pitch. But a 12' ridgeline, man that thing will have an echo.

    Enjoy.

    Sounds wonderful! I like 12' ridgelines. My long hammocks fit nicely under them

    koots to you B2R, there is no finer tarp on the market today. HG has raised the bar to the stratosphere in the Winter Palace.....but do go ahead and get some of that clear duct tape and wrap it around your finger for just in case. I got roched into one by Shug, who roched you?

    Primarily the Ginger one too ;-)

    Been eyeballing it for a while and finally decided to treat myself. Will have a looksee around my neck of the woods for the clear duct tape, or else 'tinternet'.

    Maybe, one day a Dirigible too ;-) but I like to be able to look to both sides ...

    Thanks for all the replies!

    WHAT boy ooohhh boy am I jealous. Your getting yourself a great piece of gear. Enjoy the Palace in the outdoors and all that it covers.
    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.
