Ok so I got a hammock for my Hubby, and to make a long story short nether of us liked it.:(
Here's the long story.
I have a HH and he said "I like yours but its to small" I think I know of the perfect hammock for you! the WB Blackbird Double Layer 1.7oz (olive green w/webbing) I billed it "the Cadillac of hammocks" ,ordered it a week and half ago and it showed up today!!!! I think I'm more excited then he is. :D
Well he threw the box on the bed and said here. I jumped up ripping open the box while running down the stairs to the backyard. Yelling "its here! Come on I'll show you how to set it up!!"
The screen door slammed behind me as he said " I have stuff to do first." "But I want to show you this" :scared: I said, he replied " I'll be right back" as he was pulling out of the drive.
So I waited.........a whole 2 min! I had it set up and in love in about 3 min :boggle:!!!!!
he came home about 15 min later and I yelled "come here come here,COME HERE!!!!" almost jumping up and down like a little kid! I got back a "wait a min! "
That man is killing me now!!!!!:scared: well he finely came out and I proceeded to ramble off how to set it up(easy w/ the webbing and binners) and the tie outs. then I had to take a breath and repeat everything cus he said I sounded like a chipmunk on crack!!:lol:
he layed down and a short Q&A he's oooohhhhh ooooowwww WOW! I like!!!! It's so Big and roomy! :boggle: I was so happy for him. now I secretly hope he maybe a ground lover so I can have it!!! :sneaky:
or you can buy yourself one, so as not to be tempted into 'accidently' taking his on a hike..
KM(who is laughing as I read your story to my own DH- who patiently listens to all my HF read-alouds)
I already thought of that! LOL he can't hike anymore so.........:thumbup:
Brilliant story! made me chuckle this morning, thanks for that:D:thumbup:
You are so cool - buying him a "Cadillac":thumbup1:
Wish my missus was so enthusiastic about gear, i can't even get her to buy a cd from my wish list.... - so cottage gear is out of the question(but as long as she puts up with all my gear rambling and want to go hiking/camping - she' a keeper in my book;):D)
'Chipmunk on crack', love it!!!
I hope you guys enjoy the hammock and he lets you get some hang time in it...
That is one thoughtful gift!
:lol: i share your joy! chipmunk on crack - good gear will do that to you! thanks for the positive vibes of your post :D
