Stuffed my MountainSmith Fanny with Strapettes full of Warbonnet Traveler, and hit Miller Park by the lake in Bloomington in my red pickup. Holy moly, this Traveler rocks! I see now why it's your favorite hammock, Angry. the 1.7 olive DL fabric is super soft (maybe softer than my 1.0 WBBB? I can't tell), and the gathered end, built in ridge line, and the cinch buckles on supple 1" straps made hanging it effortless. I love the width of it, and the ability to diagonal lay is better, I think than even the Blackbird with the footbox. I'm not sure, but it just felt natural to me. I'll have the two Warbonnet's side by side sometime.
As there were plenty of piney debris from the trees, I put up the stock Hennessy tarp, which seemed just large enough to cover the Traveler. If it was raining at an angle, I'm sure I'd have to hang it lower, but on a gorgesou 85F day in the park, I wanted to see the lake.
I did make one discovery--the 2QzQ peak bag, which I never really found a great use for--was an ideal stuff sack for my HH tarp and tarp line! I don't have snakes for this setup yet, so I just took it all down, and stuffed it perfectly in the peak bag, and without even taking it off the hammock, the entire shebang went back into the stock Warbonnet Traveler black stuff sack. So now, when I deploy it, a tarp is always there on the peak bag, should I need it.
The Traveler is my new favorite hammock. All the gear mentioned fit neatly in my fannybag, which is ideal on a warm day like today.
SOrry, an empty hammock looks lonely...but I was soon in it, reading for a couple hours, after these photos were snapped.
