Invention of the Wallup
The Inventor of the Wallup spent his younger days scrounging the Cascade forests for neat things, elusive trout, forgotten forest ponds, and secluded valleys.
On one of his many outings with friends found them caught by the wind playing a game of cards.
He swore revenge and on the next camping trip the Wallup! began life as a tarp braced with conduit poles.
Many years of trial and error led to the present design. After many prototypes, material tests, and failures, the current Wallup! was created.
The first of the prototypes were sewn out of the inventors shop and every tent pole for sale within 60 miles of his home was purchased. Stakes were created that fit the poles and a series of ten working prototypes were produced. Market surveys were conducted, leading to more prototypes, a business plan, a team, and eventually production of the “world’s most versatile self standing portable wall structure designed for the outdoors.”
