    Mirror Image driB kcalB

    Hey Guys,
    I just received conformation on my second Black Bird Hammock order.
    Number one is a stock double 1.1 for my wife and #2 is going to be a mirror image of hers for me.
    The idea behind making one a mirror image of the other is to facilitate having both zippers to the inside whenever we can manage a double hang under the same tarp setup.

    This will allow us to pass gear back and forth and carry on face to face conversatations just before falling asleep.
    This will work well for backyard camping and also might work out well on the trail from time to time.

    Looks like we should have them in a couple of weeks.
    I will upload some pictures of them in action and share my thoughts on the idea and overall impressions on the hammocks themselves.

    More soon......

    Please keep us updated on how the mirror image works out, I would like to try something similar when me and my wife go. Its a plus for the weight savings, and she gets scared at night. Pics would be nice.

    Hey Ike,
    Will do...
    I think that this is going to work well. We had the Hennesy before but they did not permit handing things across or even basic ( net free) contact.
    I think we missed this aspect from out tent camping days and this idea, if it works could be pretty cool.
    My wife doesn't spook very easily and tends to fall asleep before I do. I tend to be a wee bit more vigilant but usually sleep well on the trail once I get settled in.

    Cheers,
    Darrel

    I think I'm gonna get the Explorer zipper mod on the right side so my wife can hang beside me. Not the same as a mirror image, but still more convenient than no contact and she likes the Hennessy entry more than a side entry.

    No worries, man - building that site helped me organize my own thoughts, and I figured I wasn't the only one doing that research so I put it out there for everybody. Just like this site...it helps people get started and they end up sharing, so everybody benefits. It's like we reached a critical mass of relaxation or something.

    Hey Jeff,
    So true, so true.
    There exists a uniqueness to this board however that I have not experienced often enough elsewhere .
    Contributions spawn new discoveries which in turn are shared and the cycle perpetuates . Cool beans.

    Cheers,
    Darrel

    Jeff without your site, i would have gotten the wrong hammock, not known anything about uqs, tqs, weather shields or otherwise. Nice organization too, very easy to use.
