    Took The Plunge

    I know that this is the only place where the people I tell will be as sympathetically giddy as I am
    Just ordered my first hammock, a WBBB 1.7 dbl and am hoping for a Big Sur hang sometime in mid January. Keeping my fingers crossed....

    Thanks for all those (whether you know it or not) that helped make my decision.

    Didn't exactly "advertise" that it's a multi-part system. One thing at a time...

    Gonna cheap-tarp it for a while, as well as use my pad (that I love btw) but eventually I've decided on a SF tarp and a HammockGear incubator. I'm a pretty big guy, so probably gonna stick with my monstrous Sawtooth x-long x-wide for a while because I'm super comfy in it. Wouldn't you know it? I have exactly TWO trees in my front yard...

    I just did the same thing. I received a wbbb about a month ago and have only gotten to use it a couple of times but I LOVE it! So much so that I ordered another one so that way my wife and both boys will have their own hammock. They are really great hammocks.
