Pay it forward
#1
Exclamation 
"The following is a direct qoute from the other forum on the rules of Pay it forward"

Here's the idea: I will put some of my "stuff" up for grabs that I dont want anymore. If someone wants it, they simply ask for it. I will send my item to that person...on my dime. The person who gets my stuff will, in turn, put something up for grabs on this thread for someone else to grab. It can be any kind of gear or whatever. Sure, you may shell out a few bucks to ship something. But it will wash out in the end when you ask for something you see put up for grabs and it gets sent to you. Its part of the spirit of this "pay it forward" idea. Sure this is solely on the honor system. You have to live with yourself if you dont give back after you take something. Some of us will be watching for you to pay it forward...but in the end, it is you who has to live in your own skin. If you take something...you must give something.

I'll start.  I just got a nice leather belt that has the hidden zippered pocket on the inside.  I made a mistake and it's too big for me (size 40-44).  Rather than chop it up I'll offer it up to anyone that would like it.  Brand new, never worn.  You want it shoot me your addy and I'll have it heading your way.

I like the idea well enough I'll put up a completely nylon jungle hammock w/ attached netting. I can't get comfortable in it. It has no suspension ropes nor a tarp. Yard sale gift the wife didn't check out. Oh well. Sad  Just doesn't work for me, but might for someone else.

If no one else wants the hammock, I'll take it  Smile

Could you use that hidden compartment belt?

I'll PM you my addy.

Who else would like to 'pay it forward'?

Got the hammock Jeff, many thanks.  Looks great and I know I'll get a lot of use out of it.  I'm working tomorrow and Thursday so I'll shoot the belt out to you on Friday  Smile
