Black Goat Gear site was founded in January, 2009. It was to be a vehicle to showcase products that I was developing for a growing market segment that was sweeping the outdoors industry, hammocks and ultralight backpacking.
After building a few hammocks and prototypes for family and friends, I quickly realized that I did not have enough bandwith to actually produce and market my concepts. So I have used this site to blog about some of the camping related things that have interested me and things I find of interest online.
Some day I may attempt to bring to light some of the ideas I had planned on producing for the masses, but until then I will continue to use this as a personal do-it-yourself (DIY) blog.
Thanks for visiting.
