Three years ago I set off on a wonderful, exciting and tumultuous journey with one of my best friends, Stephen Learmonth. That journey brought about the birth of NapSack Hammocks.
Three days ago, I set off on a new journey, one I would go alone as NapSack Hammocks said goodbye to Stephen.
Stephen is a true friend in every sense of the word - Loyal, trustworthy, dependable, caring, generous and a trusted counsel.
Stephen and I both played our roles in the business and make no doubt, without Stephen NapSack Hammocks would still be a pipe dream. We regularly shared ideas of projects and with Stephen’s engineering brain he would be able to bring our visions to life and explain the limitations of them.
Many days and nights would be spent with Stephen dealing with my frustrations of why my ideas would not be viable. In the end Stephen would always find a work around that was mutually beneficial.
Although Stephen has left the business, we remain great friends and Stephen’s legacy is in every hammock you sleep in and every tarp you shelter under.
I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing him every success in the future.
See you on the trail buddy.
