    First ever hang in Nashville

    Iv'e been backpacking (Smokies mostly) for the last few years... sleeping in a tent until recently in a bivy under a tarp. I'm always trying to get that pack weight down. About eight days ago I ordered a WBBB as I've seen posted on this forum and on the web in general that they are top notch. I'm still anxiously awaiting an email saying it's shipped, but tonight was my first actual hammock experience.

    My wife has been a fan of lounging in hammocks for some time and for her birthday I purchased her an ENO doublenest and surprised her with it just moments ago. If my brief experience lounging with the dog while waiting for her to return home is any indication, I've made the correct decision to leave the ground. Amazing comfort!

    Anyway... I've been lurking around a while and collecting information here and just wanted to say thanks and hello.

    I had the pleasure of hammocking in your neck of the woods during my cross country motorcycle trip!

    Welcome Designerider. I grew up in Gatlinburg--world's strangest place to grow up--it's just not normal. Love the Smokies. Hope you have a great experience with the WBBB.

    You might have email Brandon at WB and see when he is going to ship..I know he just moved into a new warehouse, and have been dying also to get a Traveler I had ordered, and just this morning got a email from him that hammock was shipped today..so I know he is getting everything together from his move and everything..all good things comes to those that wait..even tho its ansey..lol

    welcome and have fun.
