If it's the same flu that the vaccine is out for, it's a bugger. The WORST I've ever had. 10 days down, along with sinus and ear infections. The vaccine was available at work the day I came down with it.
Any thoughts on how well the XLC will work with the Edge tarp?...might be right on the edge of decent coverage?

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."

Is the XLC backwards compatible with all of your previous underquilts? I still have my 2007 Blackbird and Warbonnet torso underquilt that I bought alongside it (this was circa 2007 I think?). It's black and gives you the option to add or subtract layers of insulation using quilt loops. Seems like an extra foot on the hammock shouldn't throw the fit off, but just wanted to double-check.
Feel better real soon Brandon!
as for uq's, the current yeti (less than 2 years old or so) has a pretty tight fixed suspension so i think those will require some kind of short extension cord at one or both ends, should be pretty simple though. earlier yetis had a looser suspension so they should have enough stretch to span the new distance
I'm ready for a new purchase. Now to sell off some stuff to make room. Feel better Brandon.
What I'm curious about is weather or not you (Brandon) are going to make the original WBBB like the XLC in hopes of lightening up the original WBBB. More netting less material lighter hammock. I don't need the full zip of the XLC but I would love to see the WBBB lighten up a bit. Glad your feeling better Brandon. Cant wait to you release the XLC.
Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.
Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
