    STRAP KIT

    Do you remember our Strap Kit? It was not another copycat leather tool roll but a soft tweed thing like no other. We have made a new one and the above image shows the embroidered patch that adorns the front. The Strap Kit will remain a customer only product – you have to be in the club! This time around it has been redesigned to fit 16 straps and three of our drivers. It is bigger, bolder and utterly wonderful in every way. The Kits will be up on our website and ready to deliver very soon. Watch out for the official launch in a forthcoming Bulletin!

    FERRIS WHEEL BLUES

    I got the Ferris Wheel Blues

    An excerpt from the poem “The Ferris Wheel” by Wyatt Prunty from Unarmed and Dangerous. With a Signalman in the fore.

    Since the genius of the wheel was accident,
    The always-almost that hadn’t,
    A minor agony rehearsed as fun
    While the lights came up and dark replaced the sun,
    Seeming to complete their going round all day,
    Paying to be turned that way.

    Later, standing off, he felt the wheel’s mild dread,
    Going as though it lapped the miles ahead
    And rolled them up into the cloudless black,
    While those who rode accelerated back
    And up into the night’s steep zero-G
    That proved them free.
