: : : Hi Michaelson!!! I've been in Georgia for the past month or so.
: : : I just got back on Saturday. I've been spending my summer earning
: : : money for the very Indy-looking Filson Rucksack, courtesy of the
: : : David Morgan company. It costed like $175. But it's well worth it.
: : : It's 100% American-made, VERY sturdy and well-built, and it holds
: : : my bullwhip and satchel very nicely. Have you seen Morgan's prices?!?!
: : : My bullwhip, which costed only $515 this time last year, now costs
: : : $585!!!!! Can you believe it??? And he's just created a new-size Indy
: : : bullwhip- a 5 foot model for only $330. Do you know if anybody responded
: : : to my offer for a trade of a copy of the Making of Raiders book for
: : : my brand-new pristine condition Lost Treasure of Sheba book? And, have
: : : you heard ANY news about Secret of the Sphinx? It's DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!
: : : It's been a year and a half!!! Come on Bantam books- DANG!!! I did
: : : pick up a copy of the new Harrison Ford biography. It has a SWEET
: : : of Indy on the back cover that I've never seen before. I also
: : : made a new discovery about Last Crusade: when Indy remarks, "If its
: : : truth you're interested in, Dr. Tyree's philosophy class is right down
: : : the hall..." it is a reference to the philosophy class that Harrison
: : : took while attending Ripon college. His teacher- Dr. Tyree, was one
: : : of Harrison's best friends, much like Indy and Professor Conrad (from
: : : Peril at Delphi). Cool, huh? Sorry about not writing. I know there's
: : : really no excuse for it, but I was rather busy. I did find a model of
: : : the Martin M-130 China Clipper complete with Pan-Am logos, international
: : : red wing-top decals and the famous NC-14716 identification numerals.
: : : It's going to be awesome when I finish it!!! Bye for now!!!
: : : Your friend-

: : Hi Dale, good to see you back on the forum. I just wanted to comment on those new David Morgan Bullwhip prices. After reading you note I jumped over to their web site to check out the new prices, talk about a BIG surprise. I have watched his prices on his Indy series climb slowly over the past few years by around $15 dollars every six months or so, but this is by far the biggest increase I have seen. I can only speculate as to why such a big price increase, but I have to agree it is very disappointing. I like the Idea of him offering a 5ft version though. Take care, talk to you later.

: Well Dale and Dan, I did buy one of the watch lanyards for my pocket watch from Morgan. That's about the extent of my trading with them. Well, at least I finally bought something braided from them. Regards. Michaelson
Hi Michaelson and Dan. This is a double response letter. I
have purchased four items from David Morgan: my Indiana Jones
bullwhip, an autographed copy of Whips and Whipmaking, a 4 foot
signal whip, and the Filson Rucksack. Very nice, all-American-
made items. I like buying David Morgan stuff, but not if it's
going to skyrocket in price. I'm like you Dan, I was completely
taken aback and shocked at the high whip prices. As I was walking
around my room, examining my new stash of Harrison Ford memorabilia
and my Filson bag, I was casually paging through the new Fall/Winter
copy of the David Morgan catalog. WOW!!! What a shock!!!! The only
other thing I want to buy from them is the $58 St. Brynach's cross
sterling silver necklace pendant. It's sweet. And maybe a pair of
ultra-sensitive kangaroo leather riding gloves to use for whip
practice. P.S.- I can't wait for it to get COLD so I can get some
use out of my Wested jacket.
