    I did it!!

    After lurking for several months, reading a lot of posts, and watching Shug's videos I finally jumped in. Today I purchased a WBBB 1.1 DL and a BMJ tarp. I also purchased a Gossamer Gear 1/4" pad. I am a backpacker and I hope this new purchase will make the backpacking experience even better. Thanks all for sharing your knowledge on this forum. I hope I made the right decision.

    And the wait begins...

    I'll say you made a real good decision at the very least!

    You done good! Nice to have you out of the shadows and into the fold (I lurked for a month before joining because I really dislike forums--this one is different). Hope you enjoy yourself out there. Let us know all about it .
    You're gonna need a bigger hammock

    Thanks everyone. I got the Blackbird in the mail on Saturday. I put together a hammock stand and actually slept in it Saturday night. I was very surprised at how comfortable it was. I slept great. I am really looking forward to getting it in the woods. If only this crazy southern heat would break for a weekend. I am going to try to set the superfly up tonight after work and cut all my guylines. Maybe I'll get some pictures while I'm at it.
