    Hey.... I'm a Warbonnet guy!

    I'm totally new to hanging.

    Just bought a WBBB from Wildgene on the forum.

    He's a standup guy and it was a great transaction.

    I've never hung before, and couldn't really appreciate all the raving about the Blackbird, but I GET IT NOW!

    I felt like I was floating in mid air, totally flat, suspended on a cloud......

    I can't wait to get a tarp for this setup and take it out for an overnighter.

    I'm a hanger!

    back in the 80's people would pay good money to float in salt tanks. the salt would suspend them. i never understood why until i "floated" in my hammock

    SBD, you totally nailed it. I've "floated" in those tanks and yes, the WBBB is just like it.

    Congrats jerseydave and welcome to the club.

    Can't take the credit, they were on it from wildgene, but I like em just fine so far. A little intimidating at first, the wonder of "that's gonna hold my weight?"

    I chose to get mine in a less conspicuous place.
