    Soon to be new Canadian hanger

    Hi from Toronto, ON.

    I've been lurking on the forums for about a week now, trying to absorb some of the great info here. The 54+ pages on whoopie slings is inspiring!

    My first hammock is going to be the WBBB 1.1 double, already on order "made by WarBonnetGuy his real name is Brandon". One very important thing I've learned is that Shug's 10 part Hammock primer on Youtube, really should be watched in installments... not as a marathon! I still hear his voice in my head.

    Also on order is a tarp from "WarBonnetGuy his real name is Brandon", snakeskins and some Amsteel to make some whoopie slings.

    Soon to be on order... I hope, are some Dutch clips. Too bad I didn't find the forum before the Hammock Forums Buff order was closed, 'cause I probably would have picked up a couple of those too.

    I haven't gone for my first hang yet, and I'm already hooked.

    Cheers,

    Jiblets

    Welcome Jiblets!!

    Now all you need is an UQ.

    You're off to a grand start, gear-wise!

    Welcome, Jiblets. Sounds like you have a really good start on getting your gear.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Beep: I almost got an UQ from TeWa, but decided to use my trusty thermarest ultralite first. I may buy a Speer SPE 4x4 especially since it's on sale right now, but I'll try hold off 'till I actually receive the BB first.

    Sk8rs_Dad: I'll keep an eye on it. Thanks!

    FWIW I started with my Thermarest NeoAir first. It worked, sorta, but I still had cold shoulders...basically almost impossible to avoid with any pad by itself. I swallowed VERY hard before stepping up for a Yeti 3 season, but that has worked superbly well. If I were faced with the same decision today, I'd strongly consider the Crow's Nest from Stormcrow (slightly longer (i.e. 3/4 length) and slightly thicker/plumper than the Yeti). Some of that is driven by my size (6'5") so a bit of extra length is desirable to get the same relative coverage as more average height users.
