    Greetings from good old Europe

    Going with tent and bike I do for more than 35 y. But hanging between trees? In theory I learned a lot from reading threads, articles and infos in this really impressive forum and I feel not being too old to try 'hammocking'. I ordered a WBBB .... and I will see. Thanks a lot

    Hammocking is not always lighter than using a tent- depending on the set-up you have been using, but for the same weight it is almost always more comfortable!

    Welcome to HF. Once you get your first hang in your WBBB. You will start asking yourself. Why did I wait so many years to try this.

    Welcome to the madness. You have made a good choice with the BlackBird. Very comfortable hammock.

    Do not worry about age. Every hammock hannger is young in heart while hanging.
