    First Hammock Has Been Ordered (can of worms?)

    OK...after way too much time spent on research I have ordered a WBBB 1.7 Double. I was leaning that way but the Holiday Sale price is what clinched it. Now I need to decide on a tarp.

    I'm afraid this is the beginning of a much thinner wallet.

    No kidding... Good luck, I still haven't settled on a Tarp. Might go Zpack Cuban. Decision, decisions...

    Nice! The BB is a FANTASTIC choice. I love mine.

    Why not do the Superfly or Mamajamba? The Superfly is generally considered one of the best non-cuben tarps out there... if you add it to your Warbonnet order you'd save on some shipping by doubling up.

    If you want to spend more $$ and go cuben, HammockGear has some great choices.

    Enjoy! I went with the superfly and it is great for windy and cooler conditions. I think I will also get a smaller tarp without doors for summer though. You'll love the BB!

    Wait til you have to buy a 2nd setup.
    We are now ready to start our way down the Great Unknown.We are three quarters of a mile in the depth of the earth.We have an unknown distance yet to run, an unknow river yet to explore.What falls there are, we know not; what rocks beset the channel, we know not; what walls rise over the river, we know not. Ah, well! We may conjecture many things. The men talk as cheerfully as ever; jests are bandied about freely this morning; but to me the cheer is somber and the jests are ghastly. Powell 1869

    You don't want that money getting stale sitting in your wallet

    Never mind that my hammock #8 just arrived.
