I think it is because Roland prays for lift and over does it a bit......

Let's all pray for their safety. Can never be too safe.

Yes, my covers are heat sealed with a machine set at 390 degrees and they are reinforced at the opening. A hot car will not damage them.

I have patterns to fit most DLGs!

How do they hold up in a hot car?

Thanks.

We are starting to prepare to be ready on time

I saw that on the news this AM.

Taiwan can't catch a break this year!

Typhoon update

Many thanks to all for your dearly concern..... unfortunately again....

YELAWAT has become a CAT5 now

Actually the Typhoon season should be over by now but the signs of dramatic climate changes becoming more and more evident. Unfortunately Taiwan is somehow heavily involved this year

Dan makes excellent covers for a great price. I am very cheap when it comes to something I can make myself but Dan's materials and fabrication are so good I dont even bother making my own. They are great! They hold up very well. No regrets buying from Dan.

Stay safe, Roland! I send good wishes to you, your family and the entire island.
Cheers

Those typhoons really suck. I have family and friends in the Philippines, too, and these calamities are really straining the people.

Stay safe, Roland and co.

Hi Roland,
What a bad luck! Unbelievable.
Stay save with your family!
We keep our fingers crossed here in The Netherlands.
Kind regards,

Once again Roland be safe and good luck! Taiwan must be a wonderful place to live for you to put up with CAT5 typhoons.

+1 on Dan's wing bags. I have three sets with tails included and they are most excellent.

Oh boy....another storm??? Roland, any chance you might consider a move to sunny southern california? Hang tough, stay dry, and hold everything down. Hopefully this one will turn away.

Thinking of you.
