    New Hammock Down Under

    I got back from the USA yesterday to meet my new Warbonnet Blackbird.

    Went to the park today to try it out. So comfortable. Can't wait to sleep in it.

    Funny, I get the mental image of you walking out of the airport to be greeted by your WBBB! (I guess you can tell that I am still half asleep) Welcome to the forum and enjoy your new hammock.

    Welcome! And nice start!

    Looks like you might want to get that suspension up just a bit higher on the tree. Try it out and see if it helps the lay of the Blackbird. It's all personal though, Hang Your Own Hang (HYOH)
