    First WBBB Hang...

    This weekend I finally got to use my new WBBB and QES Deluxe setup (besides just hanging in the backyard). It was at a Boy Scout camp out and the weather was perfect. Still working out setup and adjustment, but I slept great. And as you can see, sunrise was awesome this morning.

    Thanks to all for the great info here. This forum has really helped shorten up my learning curve.

    Cheers,
    jw

    Yep, especially considering only 50 feet away were 30+ Scouts in their tents.

    That's the one piece of advice I haven't seen posted here, but is one thing everyone should be aware of. I didn't sleep well at all the first night. But the second night, after figuring out a few adjustments and getting use to it, was great. And I can assume it will only get better with experience setting things up in the field.

    BTW - Thanks for taking the time to make all the videos. They've certainly helped me out.

    Have you converted any of those scouts to hammocks yet?


    I like the way you have your tarp strung up. What you you have attaching your tarp to the ridge line?
