    first hammock came in today!

    Well, I'm new to this.

    I got tired of sleeping on the ground so I ordered a Warbonnet Blackbird about a month ago. I like to sleep on my side and have a bad left shoulder so Brandon built me a "mirror image" hammock. Took about a month from order to arrival.

    Ran out into the yard and hung it up. I didn't use carabiners but used a stick toggle. I ran the standing part of the web strap thru the eye in a loop and inserted a stick thru the loop. Works great.

    Thanks to all the information on the Warbonnet site and Shug's videos, I didn't have a problem in getting it to hang right.

    I look forward to getting to know you all and a good night's sleep

    Wow, a lefty lay. I want one. I thought I heard Shug said somewhere that he had one, but it didn't show up on his videos that way.
