    Welcome to HF, since I have the HH DJ. I would like to see you get the WBBB since that would have been my next choice.

    Wow! Two similar screen names both from the same city!

    Hangin' A, Might I reccomend working on the watery puppy dog eye look on dad there's no need to wait for your birthday


    What I think would be fun is a DIY project with dad. Maybe? I did a gathered end hammock right off of knotty's stickied post in the DIY forum and it turned out great and was very easy to do.

    Awe come on, Dad, don't want your child to be scarred by not having the best first! Seriously, the idea of a DIY first hanmock like the speer would be a great entry into hammock camping.
