Did I miss something? I swear I logged in at 10am on the dot and I didn't see the Pro Poncho listed on BPL. Did it sell that fast?

Still might pick up a dry bag or two on sale.

I didn't see a poncho listed either despite seeing the page right as everything was posted.

Literally stuff went in seconds- I went by my clocks at 10am and deleted the sold items and reposted the list about every 30 seconds in the first minutes.

+2! I'm glad I didn't buy that pot & stove combo a few weeks ago when I was thinking about it. Thanks much, Ron.

So come on guys,

What did you all get?

4.30 AM was too early for me to get up and check it out.

"What did you all get?"

Well, I hate to rub it in. Well, hate is such a strong word. Okay!

I actually forgot about the sale. I saw Andy's 'thanks Ron' post on BPL around 10:40 am, so I went to check out the site to see if anything was left. He had a Soul bivy, side zip, all eVent top, that, I guess, didn't go in the first half hour. So he dropped the price (from what I don't know) to $165. I jumped on it!

Alright guys.

I got the poncho tarp. I didn't see it myself up there listed and figured it was gone, but everything else was still up there so I though I would at least ask since it was on this thread.(This was right at 10am) I just asked Ron why the poncho tarp was not listed and got an email back saying I was the first to ask.

So that's where it went. :)

Although I forgot the minibiners.

Ron - Can I send you a payment for them and put them in the box with my other stuff I ordered?
