    Hope this place does not cause a divorce.

    I already started but can only take limited doses of the humor...being a driven type ("Just the facts maam" J. Friday). I will work my way through as the info (when it arrives) is gold.

    The WB seems to be very popular and looks to be quality built. I have researched the WBBB but by the time I buy the hammock, a tarp, underquilt etc I could have a bomb of a HH for much less (yes I know China...and wish Tom would do otherwise). If I am going to spend big bucks on my 'dang me hang me' first launch it will be on a Clark 250 (so far).

    If all works as I hope, after retirement I might be hanging in Kenya with some missionary friends! Maybe even Russia too! The hammock will need to be able to fit in a carry on and fill all needs. Might have to get a job to catch up on rest.

    I do kinda hide the facts!
    Every time I try to go "just the facts" ..... I just go nuts.
    Lots of other info videos in the "video" link up above on top gray bar.
    Tons of info.

    No offense meant Shug (I hope), takes all kinds to make the world go around. I've got a sense of humor if I can find where the wife put it (prolly in the box she took the ball and chain from). Different learning styles and mine is tempered from 32 years of LEO investigations. Maybe after retirement I will become 'normal' (a setting on your dryer BTW) again.

    P.S.
    I'll prolly just go with whatever comes stock on the hammock that I settle on. After that the farkeling (a moto term for after market add ons and pennytech DIY too) will begin in ernest. THAT will be a whole new investigation!
