    Hovering on the trigger...

    I'm going on a trip later this month. After lurking here for a while I've decided to try hanging rather than sleeping on the ground.

    The WBBB looks to be the go to choice. However, I'm leaving on the 19th, I don't know if I can get one in hand by then.

    Just wanted to say thanks for all the informative reviews and posts. I was able to find everything I needed by some simple searching.

    Even if I have to buy something else for my next trip, ultimately I'll end up with a wbbb....now for the tough part 1.1 or 1.7?!

    I doubt you'd get one by the 19th, but maybe something can be worked out with Brandon directly...I wouldn't leave it to chance though.

    I'd keep one eye on the For Sale section of the forum and one finger pressing the F5 button Some hammocks go really fast and the WBBB is one of them.

    Oh, and you may also consider a post in the Want To Buy section in case someone is sitting on one.

    Else, you can always pick up a Hennessey or another all-in-one that is in stock if you run out of time.

    +1 on speaking with Brandon directly or watching the sales section to get your bad boy earlier than needed. Good luck!

    That's not a bad idea. I had no idea I could actually get in contact with him. I just sent an email through the WB site. Is there a more efficient way?

    Thanks guys.

    I have to chuckle everytime I see a WBBB go up for sale on the For Sale forum. They sell everytime in one to four minutes. I don't think I've recently seen one last even 5 minutes. I think there's a lot of folks sitting on the F5. That alone speeks volumes for this hammock.

    I've got a 1.7 in hand now. I'll probably end up with a 1.1 dbl at some point. I'll try to get a test hang in this weekend.
