Guess someone noticed us.

We were running a group buy on GIMPs for some emergency bivvy sacks. Apparently we caused a decent spike in the vendor’s traffic — their usage logs reported a number of hits from the forum. I got this email earlier in the week:

Hi Dr Faulken,

I am the owner of redflarekits.com website. I have been getting some traffic from your forum and I was wondering if I could join in.

Thanks

Alex

Who knows what is going to come out of this, but I’m proud that our relatively small community is growing to the point where we can get noticed by vendors. This may turn out to be nothing, or it could turn out to some more “real” group buys where we get more than a standard discount. Stay tuned, and GO GIMPS!
