    First night in a Blackbird

    The temps dropped to below 0C (32F) yesterday afternoon.
    Since my Vario Hammock stand arrived on Thursday afternoon,
    i rigged everything in the backyard before going to a Halloween party.

    Got home at 24.00 , jumped into the hammock and
    was sound asleep at 00.20. (not entirely sober)

    Setup
    Vario Hammock stand
    Mac Cat Standard Tarp
    Warbonnet Blackbird SL
    preachers 1/2 UQ (Down)
    Western Mountaineering Caribou Sleeping bag 35F

    I was wearing a wool underkit and Western Mountaineering Flight jacket,
    The plan was to use the jacket until i was warm and toasty and then stuff it
    in a bag and use it as a pillow.
    Never happened, fell asleep.
    Slept late.

    I was warm the hole night and i am super pleased with both the UQ and
    the Warbonnet Blackbird SL.

    I have several hammocks now
    1. Clark NA
    2. Claytor
    3. DD
    4. Warbonnet Blackbird


    And im pretty sure the Blackbird will be my number uno hammock from now on

    Thanks for a excellent hammock Brandon

    Sounds like a terrific night there in Sweden! Celebrating Halloween and then crashing in the hammock ....
    Can't wait to try out my Blackbird when it comes! Excited hearing all the good reviews.
