I have a friend from Zombie Squad who wants to get into hammocking. I think he might even be looking to hammock this January. I'm a terrible influence on him, because my suggestion always is "just buy the best $%!@ you can afford and go out there!". And of course I pointed him to Hammock Forums. He should be signing up here soon.
In the mean time, I told him I'd help him by putting out an APB to help him find good deals on the gear he needs in hopes that some kind souls have an excess of nice gear they can pass on to a good friend and future hanger.
His list (according to me - it could change):
Warbonnet Blackbird Dual 1.1
And some bad *** winter underquilt of warmth +1
I think the Blackbird is set in stone, but any good deals on high end tarp and underquilt are always welcomed. Please hit me up with what you have, and if Jeff ever gets his butt over here I'll point him to the For Sale section.
