UPDATE: The new shop is set up and Just Bill is catching up on the backlog of orders. If you’d like to be added to the list or have a question please reach out. Once those who have waited are taken care of we will be taking new orders.
“To many a city man there comes a time when the great town wearies him. He hates its sights and smells and clangor. Every duty is a task and every caller is a bore. There come visions of green fields and far-rolling hills, of tall forests and cool, swift-flowing streams.” Horace Kephart, ‘Camping and Woodcraft’ 1917 edition.
Yar the name on the door is mine. Town’s End Outdoors.
Just Bill on the trail, or just Bill if you like. Bill Townsend if’n yer feeling specific; hence the name on the door. The job I’ve always loved has been helping folks get out into the woods. Didn’t matter if your kiddo was heading off to summer camp or you were planning a speed hike. I just like seeing folks get out.
When folks ask me “Whataya’do?”
I tell em “I build things, and I help folks”.
But enough about me.
This gear’s for you. I mean it. That’s why I choose the address that brought you to my door. I make stuff I’d use, stuff you might not find elsewhere, and things I don’t use that might make things better for you. And if something I sell ain’t fer you… most likely I’ll tell you so and send you somewhere else. So take a look around. If this gear is for you I’ll be happy to help you out. And if not… so long as I see you out in the woods then we’re all happy campers.
Get outta town!
