Brandon is Great to talk to about any questions you might have.
No matter how off the wall, he has been Very patient with me and my Hair brained questions
Nice, thanks guys
On a side note, how taught are the central- American laws on camping?
Never know where I might end up...
You keep mentioning how you don't like how breezes can get up in the hammock. If you have a good large winter tarp (much bigger than the stock HH fly), it should block most wind if you pitch it right. Also I have never heard anybody having problems with bugs following them into top loaders so I don't think that needs to be so much of a concern. If it means anything I'll put in another word for the BB. I don't own one (yet.....) but have had the chance to sit in it along with other hammocks and I have to say it's byfar the most comfy hammock I've been in yet. Granted I don't have any overnight experience with it but as you can see many others on the site do and very highly recommend it. Unfortunately like others have said if time is of the essence you might be hard pressed to have Brandon make one for you quick enough but it's worth a shot to talk to him if you are interested in the BB.
Also on NA laws on hammocking...there are a few parks scattered here and there that don't like them because they think they damage the trees. However if somebody is using "tree huggers" (basically 1" polyester strap) it doesn't hurt the trees. In these parks where it isn't allowed I have heard of people stealth camping in them which shouldn't be too hard in most situations.....especially with the US Forest Service being severely underfunded in most places.....doubtful a range would find you if you were just a bit off the trail and out of sight.

[QUOTE=hobo;102789]Discovered the search function just now , the warbonnet seems to have a lot of followers...
Sort of like a Gerry Garcia thing huh?
Ahh man, somebody must have swiped my brownies.
I have a Hennessy ULB and a Warbonnet.
Want to buy a Hennessy? Don't know if I'll ever get in it again....
Seriously, the difference in comfort is striking. The quality is obvious the minute you hang and spend five minutes in it. The difference between the suspension is not so much the issue; you can easily add strapping and rings to any hammock. Heck, you could add a zipper to the Hennessy; you could have someone do it for you. But a Hennessy isn't a Warbonnet and doesn't sleep like one, doesn't have the shelf, doesn't have a double layer for the pad we all sometimes use.
There's also this thing about the Blackbird that compels people to rave about it in public to people they've never met... not sure what that's about.
Scuse me, going to sweep the brownie crumbs out of my hammock.
