    Jones 'in... Who else has the bug???

    What is the longest you think you could go (or have actually gone) without- your favorite hammock.

    Wow, I thought I understood the definition of addiction. For years, I've acculumated gear. Just started hanging 6 months ago and have not slept on the ground since. Now my #1 reliable is off to a very reputable mod expert and I am without for a few weeks. Been 2 weeks now and have had 3 opertunities to hang and am beside myself (I've even taken my son's Scout to the back yard last weekend just to lay out a bit...).

    I know I'm bitten, but how more severe could it possibly get and who could possibly resist longer???

    I just got my first hammock (Claytor JH) less than 2 months ago. I've slept in it about 10 nights, learning something new everytime. But then these guys like Shug, Cannibal, Quoddy, Warbonnetguy, just can't shut up about the Blackbird So here I am, less than 2 months into first "trying" a hammock, and I'm screwedI'm PATIENTLY awaiting that Paypal request from Brandon for my 1.7 double and Superfly with the removable door mod YES, I'M JONESING!!!!!

    Widow-makers are dead, yet unfallen, tree branches and limbs. It's very wise to 'look up' before hanging your hammock.

    Thanks for the update 2Q!

    Old school hangin' has been nastalgic, but no-see-ums and gnats are horrible this time of the year.

    Can't wait to play with the new tricks!

    This year, in a row: 2 nights.

    Max I think I could stand, 2 nights!

    Well, maybe 3, but I would NOT be happy.
