    I'm so ashamed.......

    I was so proud of myself. I've been hammocking for about 3 years now and took great pride in not accumulating a great deal of excess hammock gear. Today, I ordered a Speer 8x10 tarp, eventhough I already have a perfectly good tarp. I fear the beginning of a long downward spiral........

    There's a stepped process that can help... or so I'm told.

    Additional gear can always be justified on the grounds of benevalence. If one is to have friends, he must have lodging for those friends when they come to visit. Therefore, there is a valid reason to have a "guest room", or two, or three, or four, etc. You know...Peace, Love, Brotherhood, Betterment of Mankind, More Hammocks.....

    Well it's about time!
    This economy needs help and we've got citizens like you sitting around not buying extra, or spare gear. Your friends and family are left to fend for themselves as you have no 'loaner' gear. Shame on you sir!

    So, what's next?

    He went beyond that. He earned a Speer Underquilt for working the Speer booth at Trail Daze and gave that one away too.

    Now that's LOVE!

    Hooch, you are the MAN, even if you have a gear problem!

    Hootch,

    You are not alone,
    I am not alone,
    We are not alone...!



    For everything I buy I either have an excuse or I make one up

    Buying a tarp can be forgiven, but giving a way a Speer Winter Tarp...I just don't know if I have it in my heart.

    There are many people here in our community that are generous beyond reason. It does me proud to say that I rub elbows with them here!

    To mimic one of my favorite beer commercials: Here's to you...Mr. hammock accessory giving away man!
    Brian
    ...and there came to be a day, all too soon, that I became aware that I could travel no more on my long journey. Though I did not arrive where I had planned, I believe that here is exactly where I am supposed to be...

    Wow, I wasn't at TD, and hadn't heard about that. But, knowing Hooch I can honestly say I am not surprised.
