    Goodbye Give Away

    There really isn't a perfect place to post this, so if this is no good, mods, please feel free to move it.

    I hesitate to put this up, since I only have a few posts here, but really it's all about timing. This community at HF has been good to me over the years and this is an opportunity to say thanks. Some of you may know I founded End2End Trail Supply back in 2007. Well, I finally decided it wasn't worth slogging through a tough economy anymore, so we closed on 3/14/2003. As a thank you I would like to give away some new gear in a contest on Monday, 3/18/2003. I will post here 9PM Monday night(EST), and the contest is going to be fast! I will be giving away three prizes: (1) A Gram Weenie PRO stove package w/ fuel bottle, windscreen, and Evernew Titanium mug, (2) an original Gram Weenie w/ fuel bottle, windscreen, and RARE/discontinued 8cm (10ounce) aluminum mug, and finally (3) a Stanco Grease pot w/ cozy and Vargo pot grabber. I'll be picking up the shipping too, so it's totally free!

    See you on Monday and Good Luck!!

    So Sad.

    I still use my gram weenie pro to this day. I remember when you first came out with it and had a contest on BPL for the naming of it. I still have one of your original (2007) gram weenie's as well. In fact, come to think of itI bought both of them in 2007 right as you were starting up, ....Man has it been that long already...Boy times sure have changed since then..your making me feel old.

    I'll guess I'll have to stop using the stove and just put them on the shelf, so in 20 years I can pull them out and show them to people and say hey remember when these were around....and everybody will go....ooohhh ahhhhh.

    Best wishes in your new endeavors, what ever they may be.

    I hadn't heard about your stove, but seeing this made me check out some reviews. That is a very nice piece of kit, I'll definitely be back here on Monday.

    The economy is tough, but it's good to see that you're still keeping your life moving. Good luck with your future ventures.

    I'm sorry to hear that another vendor of high quality backpacking gear will be gone.
    We wish you all the best in the future.
    I really appreciate your example of how tightly knit this community is between customers and vendors, with a single purpose in mind.

    I hate to hear that you are closing up shop. Good luck to you.
