    If you will go to the HF home page, you will see a HF Google Map on the right. Click on that & you can see some of the HF members near you.
    Hopefully someone can hook up w/ you & let you try out a hammock or two in person. I know I was wanting to try one out for myself before making my first purchase.
    Thanks will check that out!

    FWIW, double layer hammocks make it much easier to manage a pad inside the hammock. Alternatively, you might consider a Speer SPE or a custom version thereof that is sized for the Large Neoair but add ANOTHER pad on the bottom...even a standard CCF would work as a second pad.

    Welcome to HF...and happy hanging!!
    Definitely will keep that in mind, I do have a RidgeRest Deluxe but hate having to carry it as it's so bulky.

    Wish I could make it, I'm located in Weymouth, MA so it'd be a long ride when my yard is complaining about the lack of love.

    Thanks for thinking of me though...

    Okay, finally made the plunge and purchased a used WBBB 1.7 Dbl with amsteel whoopies and ridgeline. Price was right and I used Christmas cash.

    Here's my question:

    The whoopies are attached already along with the ridge line. I was told it was adjustable. I have yet to set it up so the ridge line will wait. And there in lies the question. How do I go from the whoopies to the anchor points (tree/hook). The person included a set of tree huggers but there's only plastic D rings on them and no biners or dutch clips (I'm assuming that's what I need as plastic D rings won't hold this beast up).

    So in plain english with a serious ground dweller accent can anyone explain what I need to purchase to get the tree huggers and whoopies together (IF that's what needs to be done)?

    If I recall correctly you need a biner/dutchclip to tighten the tree hugger to the tree and a toggle/biner to connect the whoopie to the tree hugger.

    Fire away!

    p.s. I yelled Woohoo Buddy when I got the package and I like grape Koolaide...
