    Maccat?

    Anybody heard anything from Brian from OES lately? I put in an order for a tarp a couple weeks ago and haven't heard from him yet.

    I know he is probably busy with school this time of year, and I am in no rush, just thought I would see if anybody knew the scoop on OES's current delivery times.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    He doesn't seem to be answering emails as of late. At least, that is what most have been citing.

    I noticed this was posted under the "What's New" section of his site:

    "4/9/07

    I have completed a large batch of tarps, and am currently taking pre orders for my next large batch. I will be arriving home in Mid May, and at that point I will be able to dedicate much more of my time to getting tarps manufactured and shipped. School is going great (although it is a lot of work), and I want to thank everyone for their patience."

    Just a note to all, I am alive and well, just very, very, very busy. I have been trying to (and will be in the near future) trying to respond to all of your emails in a timely fashion. I have also gotten a lot of emails from people with support for me being in school, those are the greatest and I really appreciate those ones!

    Sounds like you have a lot on your plate. Just remember D stands for diploma.

    Brian,

    Keep your focus on what's right. I bet you've had a lot of fun with all of the snow. I don't miss it!!

    Peace,

    Diplomas are over rated. I have a few and am kind of thinking I should have been hiking instead. But hey that is just me.

    Accomplishments are easy to downplay or dismiss when you've already gone there.

    I wasn't downplaying, I was saying I should have had different priorities.
