Jibs are shipping to Kickstarter backers!

Yeeeesh! That felt like it took forever. But at last the first batch of jibs have arrived in Bend, OR USA.

Thank goodness they look and work great. We started shipping them out late Monday. It’s not just me shipping them. We hired a fulfillment center so the jibs will go out as fast as possible.

Once yours is shipped you should receive an email within 24 hours. If you don’t get an email in the next few days, your is likely coming from the next batch.

The first batch are all Mag Alloy. I’m told the Carbon Fiber Jibs and remaining Mag Alloy are finished. They are packed up and should ship from the factory within the next 24 hours to the US.

Once they get through customs, I am going to personally inspect them. I don’t know how long this will take. I’ve hired helpers to open boxes and take the jibs out of the bags (and to put everything back), but I’m doing the check myself. I’m guessing the remaining jibs should start shipping out either the day before or the day after Christmas.

On a side note, I was very excited to see the pallets of Aviator Jibs stacked high here in Oregon. Over the past few months there were times when it felt like that day would never come. It was quite a relief. Then as I left the shipping facility I smelled smoke and saw a large fire engine pull up. Yes, the place was on fire. No. I’m not kidding. Fortunately it was a very small fire, and had already been extinguished before the fire truck even pulled up. So the jibs were not in any danger. Still, I’m pretty sure I’ll get some gray hairs from that one. 🙂

I try really hard to reply to everyone’s emails and comments, but I’m guessing that’s not going to happen between now and December 26th. So if you get in touch and don’t hear back from me until after Christmas, please know it’s nothing personal.

Thanks again to all of you for your support, not only for backing the project with your money, but for your overwhelming moral support. It has helped more than I can say.

Well, back to work.

Cheers,
Zeke
