    '''PROOF''' and the first hang (updated!)

    Well I checked the mail and there it was a glorious (very little) white box. MY WBBB double 1.1 and MJ tarp arrived today. I ran right out strung it up between the pillars on the front porch (no trees in this yard, I live on a Military base) Anyways, once I adjusted the hang angle about ten times (first hammock) I just had to have somebody try it out. I would have, but I don't trust the lowest bidder construction company the U.S. Gov. goes with. I can't wait to get to the woods for some real flight time in the Blackbird.

    You might as well start shopping now for a second hammock. Based on that grin, I think you have a hanging partner for life. Congratulations. Now, get him outta the WBBB and into something cheaper like an eno single, before it's too late and he is spoiled by Brandon's awesomeness.

    (UPDATE) Well I did get a chance to hang the Blackbird after all. Took a little nap and got all my lines straightened out. I'll be selling my ground sleeping setup straight away.
