I'm new to this hammock thing and have been reading Hammock Forums religously for a few months. Based on the great reviews on the Warbonnet Blackbird, I kinda gave many hints to my bride that I "really needed" a 1.7 dbl. This morning, to my surprise and great joy, my girls handed me my Fathers Day gift and now I'm running out the door for my first hang. As Mr. Shug would say,"WHOOOOO BUDDY!" Happy Fathers Day to All.
