Getting it done in style
I recently bought my first TQ, a Wilderness Logics king size. Took on an AT two-nighter last month. Plenty of warmth. I especially like the fleece patch at the top. While it is removable, I...
WTB: Mummy silk sleeping bag liner. I'm 6 ft tall.
For those in the South who are using a sleeping bag liner with your top quilt (or by itself when it's warm enough to do so), what type of fabric is your sleeping bag liner made from? Is it worth...
I'm in. Thanks for your generosity and kindness.
I'm on a sleeping pad, but it's between the layers of WBBB. It's not uncomfortable to me.
I'm about to acquire my first top quilt and want to quiz you guys/gals about storing it. I understand that it's not good to leave it in the stuff bag in the closet. I also understand that it should...
I've heard about but never used chemical hand warmers. Fill me in.
On those occasions when you have to go to the ground, I would be like to see any pics of how you rig up your WBBB.
Count me in.
The lymphocytosis is under control?
Sol- Thanks country boy.
SOLD-I bought these Snakeskins to store my Warbonnet Blackbird hammock, but they weren't a good fit because of the design of the hammock. The hammock has a gathered end with metal buckles for tree...
So tell about about your pad setup in subzero weather.
I have the extra wide version. the last time I went out I folded it up and wrapped it with the windshield sunscreen that I also use as insulation. Then I strapped it to the outside of the pack.
The section he mentioned was Fortana Dam to Newfound Gap.
I have been invited to join a friend for a 3-day hike in October on the Smoky Mountains part of the AT. It will be my first multi-day hike. I welcome any advice/warnings.
I've had the same problem with the buckles, not to mention the knot at the end of the hammock.
If you have converted from a using a sleeping bag as a top quilt to actually using a top quilt, how has that changed your backpacking trips?
After I got my WBBB I watched the setup video on the website. It doesn't take me long to get it hung, but it takes me numerous tries to get the tension correct on the ridgeline. Any suggestions for...
I certainly interested in that part of the trail, but would like to hear about any experience on any part.
Any of you folks hiked any part of the Bartram Trail? I'd be delighted to know where you hiked and about the condition of the trail.
I was having difficulty getting my WBBB neatly tucked into my #4 snakeskins. I couldn't quite get it all in without any of it being exposed. I finally overcame my cranial density and found that if...
I'm in. I need a good pillow.
bump it up
One more thing. In TX we don't call 911.
Used to live in Dallas. If you're looking for state park type camping, Joe Pool lake is SW of Dallas. Lake Texhoma isn't too far. Lake Whitney a little farther south. Someone mentioned the Piney...
I'm in GA, but will move to SC in a year or so.
Thought I found one on ebay, but wrong size. still looking
Gave it a shot for 3 yrs. If a get a handful of ideas for $12 it will likely be worth it.
the search continues
Rather than direct you to a particular hammock I'll share with you some questions/factors I considered when deciding on my hammock/tarp. Some of the questions below may apply to both the hammock and...
I just bought one of those right before going on an overnight trip last night. It was real hot and it did help to cool me down, even though I had to just hold it in my hand off and on until I went...
JUst came home from a sweaty night in the WBBB. Got to wondering how often you guys are cleaning your WBBB. AFter a certain number of uses or just when you can't stand the stink any more?
FWIW, I just returned from an overnight. There were two hammock geeks among a bunch of tent people: Me with a WBBB and another with a Hennessey. The Hennesey camper came over and asked for a...
So are most of your guys putting both the hammock and tarp in the same set of snakeskins or are you using one set for each. It seems that, by putting both in one, after a rain you would be putting a...
Are any of you folks who live in the Deep South able to make it year round with a 3 season UQ?
So when you fold up the packed snakeskins, there's no problem with getting it into a compact package to fit in to your backpack?

Has anyone used the peapod with their WBBB? If so, what do you think about the interface between the two?
I checked the warbonnet website and the superfly has the same dimensions as the BMJ, sop maybe the #4 is the one I should get.
Just thought I'd see what other WBBB owners like most about the WBBB. If you could identify one feature about the WBBB that you enjoy the most, what would that be? For me it would be the shelf. ...
Help me overcome my cranial density. so before you put the tarp in the snakeskins do you roll the tarp around the ridgeline, then unroll it when you take it out?
I saw those listed online. Would the smaller size be the one I would need for that size tarp?
I recently received a BIg Mamajamba tarp and will take it out later this week for the first test drive. I was thinking about getting one of those bags with a hole and drawstring and each end (I...
Once a time/location are decided I'll check the calendar.
Is it advisable or not to put TQs/UQs in a compression sack?
