I have an article on page 42 about a home grown American invention (the HipStick) which is becoming increasingly popular here in Australia and felt Chris Porter deserved some cudo's for making such an excellent product. smile.gif I would also like to publicly thank you for introducing me to them during your trip to Australia in 2006 (Chris Porter kindly arranged for Chris G to bring a couple of prototypes for me to try), it was fun to see something come back this way across the pond after all the Aussie innovations I sent your way during our business dealings together. smile.gif

JP,

 

I did see your review in last month's issue. It is good to hear the HipStick has had such a warm welcome in Australia. A great product that saves a lot of wear & tear on the shoulder. I wish I could have had one when I first started swinging over ten years ago.

 

Hi Flak,

 

We still have a few of the March issues left in stock. I'd be happy to mail you one this week. Drop me an email, or call and let me know.

Jonathan;

Nice article, I always enjoy your writing and the style thereof...

 

the GG&T also has an article about an Aussie at Ganes Creek, Alaska using an xterra-70...it is good to see a variety of international articles in this magazine.

 

Thank you Chris for making the GG&T available here in the USA...$59.95 a year is a deal!!!

Hi Fred,

 

We should be thanking you; I believe you are going on your 6th year as a subscriber! :) I remember the first time I saw an issue was back in '98 in a store in Leonora, Western Australia. I liked the magazine so much I bought every back issue they had to read on the plane ride back home! From then on, every trip I made to Australia I always stocked up. A few of my friends here saw the magazines and wanted copies, so I decided to contact the publisher. He was a great guy and we were able to work a deal so that AZO could make them available to prospectors here in the US, and the rest is history. It's a great mag that only seems to be getting better & better...

 

Hi Flak,

 

I called and left a message, I believe with your wife, to let you know I will have an issue shipped to you this week. Thanks & enjoy!

I literally can't keep the HipSticks on the shelves :blink: , with dealers ringing every other day wanting more since the article in GG&T, which is why I was surprised you haven't mentioned the March issue on your forum like you usually do. :unsure:

 

I remember recommending AZO to Mark Thomas as a possible US distributor of GG&T back in 2003/2004, it seems to have been a good thing for both of you. :)

I assure you Chris that I am the one to be grateful, you can't be making much profit on the GG&T considering the time and postage involved...

 

I suppose there is a bit of common-man snobbery when I see some place or person that I have been to or met mentioned in the magazine and I can say that I have been there, done that...Hopefully when I retire next year I can get some of the folks that have made invitations to me to come through....and I can spend a few months in the wonderful world of Oz...

Hello Chris,

 

I cant thank you enough for introducing the HipStick to OZ. It was Flak that insisted I get you samples to take to JP on your vacation. (thanks Flak!)

 

If you have any March issues left please send me one and a subscription please.

 

Got any of those black Nugget finder baseball caps in stock, mine is looking pretty ratty.

Hi NVChris,

 

No problem. I'll have a subscription started for you this week and will include one of the back issues with JP's review. Also, we do have some the black embroidered NF caps in the S-M size left, which is the size most people wear. The one you have now, is it S-M or L-XL? The tag on the inside should let you know.

 

By the way, did you make contact with Scott? I haven't heard from him in some time and am hoping all is well with his father.

Thanks Chris,

 

 

 

The hat size is XL so looks like I'll try the dishwasher again :)

 

 

No word from Scott. I did get ahold of his brother (he said both were in good health) and he passed along the message for me. Hopefully its just spring nugget fever.

Hi Bill,

 

We don't handle the GGT magazine subscriptions anymore for the US, however I believe they are still publishing it. Mark Thomas was the Editor when I dealt with them. The last email I have is: magworks@ozemail.com.au.

 

I hope that helps. I'll post any more info. if I come across it.
