    Anyone in the Greenville/Spartanburg SC area?

    Having just joined the forum, and having only hung in hammocks I made myself (all bridge hammocks), I'm hoping I might find someone in the Greenville/Spartanburg SC area this week who might be able to toss a gathered end hammock in a tree for a few minutes so I could test one out. I'm a side sleeper, and I'm curious how I'll like a 'flattish' gathered end. I know I wasn't super impressed with the one ENO I tried.

    I'm away from home for work for the next week, and I thought there might be a nice big community of hangers in this area, given how many hikers seem to hale from these parts. It would be cool to have a little get together while I'm bored, trapped inside by the rain.

    If - if he stood! Enough of ifs!
    He knew a path that wanted walking
    He knew a spring that wanted drinking
    A thought that wanted further thinking.
    A love that wanted re-renewing

    I would suggest sending WFR a PM. He lives in Greer which is between Grenville and Spartanburg. He has a WBBB dbl 1.7 you could try out.

    I live in Greenville, but all i have is a couple of ENO's. I tend to be side sleeper in a bed, but end up sleeping in a weird position that's kinda half on my side and half on my back when in my hammock. i can't get completely flat, but i'm still more comfortable than on a mattress. You should definitely try out a Blackbird if you can. I'm saving for one right now. it's more comfortable than any other sleep system i've ever experienced.
