    Blackbird with BMMJ flown overseas

    2 Blackbirds 1.0 double and 2 BMMJ's have safely flown overseas!

    I wasn't able to collect them safely myself, though... I had to pay custom duties in cash at the door and didn't have enough lying around so I convinced the postman to come back an hour later. When he rang the door I was so excited that I sprinted to the door but tripped, my arm smashed against the stairs which took some of the speed out my fall which just prevented myself from smashing my head to the door....

    But what better way to ease the pain by setting up my hammock for the first time and lie soooooo comfortable in it!? The setup in my backyard was far from ideal, but still I was very very comfortable! I can't wait to try it out properly together with the BMMJ! And I can't believe how small it all packs and how lightweight it is!

    Thank you Brandon for making this incredibly comfy hammock!

    This hammock deserves a photo of a decent setup, which the setup in my backyard definitely was not, so as soon as I am able to hang it in the woods with the BMMJ I'll add a picture here.

    Just got an email that our Burrows and Phoenix have shipped too, so they should arrive in a week or two. Then I'll be able to take an even better picture!
    For color reference of the Blackbird 1.0 dbl: my arm is about the same colour right now...

    This weekend I had my first nights sleep in the WBBB! I was very pleased with my set up of the hammock, because I believe I had the angles quite ok for a rookie. I still have plenty to learn though, because I thought the Phoenix was too loose so I tightened it WAY too tight, resulting in me almost being squashed in the hammock . Still I had a good nights sleep, so it seems no matter how badly I mess up, it is impossible to get uncomfortable in the WBBB! I am glad I didn't take any pictures yet, because I believe my WBBB would be offended being shown squashed Coming weekend next try, so I hope I will be able to take a WBBB worthy picture!
