I've hinted at a gear program being in the works and while I'm finishing up the gear section on the site I'd like to make some of the products available to you all now. The program's goal is to make the gear available to those on this site who would like to decide on the river if the product works for them or not, and over a period of time suitable to make a decision, like say a week or more if needed. This program is intended to work with the manufacturers by making their product available for extended demo using additional avenues. At the same time, of course, the programs goal is be a useful option to the members in terms of demo'ing product or when needed as spare equipment. The cost to you is your feedback on how the gear performed for you with your application. For now, the feedback can be via email until I decide on the format. Use of the watermasters will be limited to those having previous experience on the river. Use of all the products will require some solid form of identification, that you're a WA resident, and an agreement that you will return the product at the agreed date. Failure to return products promptly will result in my dog having his way with you. All 170lbs of him. It will be video taped. I'm in North Bend and for those of you within driving distance I would prefer you pick up / drop off the gear from me personally. There are plenty, obviously, that'll need to have items shipped. I'm not yet ready for shipping the gear around but will be soon. Once the mechanism is set, you will be asked to cover the shipping. The program is just getting started. Check out the other posts on this board for available equipment. View the "Demo Loan Schedule / Status" thread for up to date product availability. Email me offline to schedule usage.
