Here I am, at last, hanging out with what I am finding out to be quite a group. My god! What have I gotten myself into!
I always loved hammocks as a kid, and now, once again, am loving the idea of being up in a hammock nest, as opposed to down in a tent cave. As a career professional pilot I much prefer to have a view of the horizon!
I'm getting a WBBB, and am really looking forward to hanging in it. Brandon, as it turns out, lives "just up the road" about 30 miles, and so I know it's a given that if this hammock works for him (and he makes them!) it'll do me just fine, thank you. I actually had a HH Explorer Deluxe on order and in the mail (with a second freebie HH thrown in during their xmas sale) before I heard about the WBBB, but a guy is entitled to change his mind, right? I'll return the HH's, but if anyone out there wants to get a great deal on a couple of HH's, do let me know right away, and I'll send them your way instead of back to Canada.
I do a lot of off-road dual-sport motorcycling and camping, combined with hiking, and have a Speer Winter Tarp. - A good-sized tarp comes in really handy with a motorcycle, and the bike can come in handy as a tie-off instead of a stake in the ground.
I look forward to meeting you guys and gals and hanging together!
....and thanks to all of you who have posted so much info on this forum. It has been a tremendous help to this noob...
