    My initial thought too. A factory tour of Hammock Gear and not one single picture.

    For sure, I talked to Luke about how close I live to Kettering today. GMO HANGER lives in Miamisburg, he is my buddy that went with me. I am going to try and get out this weekend. Hopefully you will be able to make it to the Frozen Butt Hang the gear shop is putting on

    As for pics, I did not even ask to take any. As for a factory tour they are a small company that does it right, not a large factory or anything. More like a shop. They had a stuffing room a sewing shop and an area for cutting and construction and of course the office area. Cool shop!

    Happy hangin!

    What a great visit!

    I am glad I got to meet both of you! I wish I could have spoken with you a bit longer. I fell asleep in my home office at around 6:30am and when I woke up at 11:30 to fly to the office I discovered a lack of car keys (They were in Thorwren's car, which was already at the office...lol...oops)

    Anyway, like I said, it was great meeting you two. I am going to try to make it down to your 'frozen butt hang'.

    Whew, it was a good thing you did not bring that camera in, I would have definitely confiscated it.... But seriously, we didn't even get one picture. Sorry about that, guys. Believe me everyone, they were here, honest!

    Cool beans! I didn't know Luke had joined HG. Growth is good, especially with a bunch of little mouths to feed!!

    Nice purchase, I'll bet you can't wait for the cold weather.

    Let us know how it works out, I just took delivery of a Mt Washington 4 and can't wait to get out in the woods this weekend.

    That makes two of us waiting for cold weather
