Hello to all - I've kept up individually with many of you but it's been far too long since I've been back on HF - so I'm finally back after a prolonged absence. I've been working hard to keep tarps flowing on time and trying to balance the entirety of the rest of my life as well.
As always, thanks again for your kind emails, support and hiking suggestions in the Northeast - I've been able to bag 6 4000'ers in the last 6 weeks in the Whites and was able to get some unbelievable views from my hammock on several occasions.
I'm also pleased to announce that this year we'll be having a Black Friday sale, appropriately titled the 'OES Tarpaganza!' More details to come in the coming day, and anyone on the OES mailing list should be getting details soon!

Glad you're back Brian.
In some mysterious way woods have never
seemed to me to be static things.
In physical terms, I move through them;
yet in metaphysical ones,
they seem to move through me. -

Glad to see you are back. How does one get on your mailing list ?
Last year I was hiking out to a favorite camping spot. It was dark when I got there and I saw another hanger already set up. Got to talking to him and he showed off his gear (he bareley knew he had a ENO, no clue as to the rest of his set up . Even though I have only seen a couple of your tarps I told him that I thought the had a McCat tarp. Sure enough, found the label confirming it was an OES tarp. Blew the guys mind that I could ID the tarp in the dark.
