    5:33pm Visit Warbonnet site; ogle Blackbird photos; watch set-up video (AGAIN).
    8:04pm Repeat all of the above. "Why hasn't it left Colorado? What does 'USPS has been notified' even mean?"
    9:28pm Check tracking information.
    9:29pm Shug-time.
    10:31pm Search HF for 'WBBB.' Whoa...you've got a lot of reading to do!
    11:14pm Check tracking information.
    11:15pm Google 'USPS delivery estimates.'
    11:48pm Watch set-up video one more time, just so you'll know exactly what to do when that box arrives.
    11:57pm Concoct story to tell the boss for when you can't make it to work one day next week. But...which day??
    11:58pm Check tracking information.
    12:01am Think to self, "Wait, how did that slippery half hitch go again? Behind the buckles?" Set-up video. Again.
    12:10am In bed for a restless night's sleep.
    12:31am Tell yourself, "OK, maybe there's a 3rd shift at the sorting facility." Check tracking information.

    Saturday
    Repeat above, beginning at 6:14am.

    Sunday
    See Saturday. Wife and son realize that you have a problem, or at least an addiction to package tracking databases.

    Next Week
    It arrives and all is right in the world.

    Then you start looking at those camo Superfly pictures...

    Wow -Have you been doing some remote viewing? I been there done that. I wish I was computer smart enough to copy multiple tracking numbers so I could track faster. Seven items incoming right now. Ups and USPS.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    Ok, I think I'm really going to like this hammock camping thing! Very comfy in my test. Slipped my pad in and comfy with or without....pad may help keep fabric stretched out a bit.

    Not great cellphone pics but here is the evidence. Put up in my basement for test purposes.

I can see advantages of each, but I think I'd want the silnylon to keep the dirt out to prevent abrasion of the hammock fabric.

    Any suggestions and clarification are appreciated!
    ====> Tiger, I just got my 1.1 Dble from Brandon, and hung in it this weekend, instead of my HH Exped Asym. while there, I experimented with putting Snakeskins (hennessey's) on the Warbonnet suspension.

    1) Would not totally fit the small end of the Snakeskins due to width of the rings.

    2) Absolutely unnecessary! The double - ended Bishop Bag is WAY easier, and faster, and better for re-packing the hammock, in my view!

    Use the BB Bag, and you will be happy!

    I, too just received a WBBB 1.7 dbl.

    And I just had my first test hang (inside).

    Flat, roomy at the shoulders, great shelf.......what more can I say?

    Mine has cinch buckles & strap suspension to match what I have on my HH and CJH. If I was really serious about 1/4 lb weight savings that the whoopies offer I would just loose another pound off my body and leave it at that! I like the simplicity and ease of adjustment.

    Don't get me wrong - I like my HH but wanted the double layer for ease of insulating. I also love my CJH for its weather protection. I just wanted to have three "girlfriends" and be able to enjoy the variety!

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure I agree. Very easy to use the bishop bag in my first deployment. I know another poster suggested the same earlier.

    Since I have the HH snakeskins on the way anyway, I can just use them on the tarp. Should work well there.

    Thank you for sharing your experience!

    ===> Yep! That is what I will be using my Snakeskins for, unless I set-up the HH for someone else, or it will be wet where I am hanging. But the WBBB will be using the Bishop Bag - no question!

    Hang on!
