    Anyone else lay the "wrong" direction in WBBB?

    I just bought my warbonnet and I can't seem to get comfortable with my feet in the footbox... Tried all differant length ridgelines and i always get calf pressure with my legs in the footbox. If I lay feet to the left though it goes away instantly. Anyone else notice this?

    I haven't tried it myself (I tend to lay closer to the head end and the foot end is raised 6 inches or so) but I believe I've seen Shug mention he lays opposite.

    I did this the other day at the park. The sun was shining in my eyes laying the normal way, so I flipped my body around and thought hey this is pretty nice. A lot of shoulder room. I haven't tried it overnight but it might be worth a go.

    I did it for a night last year, it was fine, no complaints. I've always wanted a lefty anyway.

    Ok so you meant you had your feet to the left. I was all set to go hang my WBBB in the yard to try it out with my head up in the foot box end.

    Wouldn't you love to see Shug's neighbors when he's out walking along the top of the fence?
